    Could not have received better representation

    Steve Sommers will fight for you. My case involved feeling discriminated against due to having a disability and not receiving reasonable accommodation for a job. I had never felt so discriminated against and it was incredibly hard to deal with emotionally. But somehow I decided I'd take a stand to not let them get away with it. So I talked to a bunch of attorneys who all told me they'd never seen a situation like mine and "might" be able to help which was incredibly disheartening. I took one more shot and found a bio about Steve in a Google search. Reading about his union activism and Peace Corps background made me feel Steve cared about people and that he might be different from the attorneys I contacted before. So I made an appointment, met Steve, told him about what happened and he immediately understood the magnitude of what happened. He told me he'd fight for me and that's exactly what I needed during those stressful times.

    Steve will work hard for you. I didn't get much sleep before meeting Steve because of the stress but after meeting Steve I knew I found a great attorney. He completely set me at ease and addressed every concern I had as well as ones I hadn't even realized. Being able to sleep well at night knowing your attorney is doing everything he can was a tremendous luxury. It was also calming to have been able to get updates whenever I wanted. Steve was great at communicating every step he was taking. It was impressive to see how he was able to obtain an incredible amount of evidence and scrutinize every legal detail. He's just incredibly meticulous and driven to get justice for his clients. My case was uncommon so Steve implemented different strategies tailor made to my case. His planning and preparation were unbelievable.

    What makes Steve different from any other attorney out there is that he has this innate desire to protect people. He cared about me not only as a client but also as a person. He was constantly making sure I was doing ok during the litigation process physically and emotionally. He sees the big picture and made sure to consider my long term welfare. Even when the case reached it's end, Steve was thinking of plans for my long term future. Again, Steve valued me as a person not just as a client.

    I'm not allowed to talk about any aspect of settlement or if there was one but I can say that I was able to close this chapter of my life and move on. I couldn't have done this without the help of Steve Sommers. The legal representation was second to none but what I'll always remember is that Steve was there for me making sure I was doing ok beyond the legal protocols. For that, Steve Sommers will always have a special place in my heart.

    Strong, Aggressive Stand for Justice, Client's Humanity ..... Needs to get Personal even more !

    Identified with my case in 2011 and tied it well with 3 other related cases;
    Met and listened to many concerns, circumstances and reviewed hundreds of emails, documents ...
    Played realistic and aggressive at settlement;
    Needs to get even more personal with clients and spend time outside the office ... Needs to improve professionalism and client communication/responsiveness.

    Strong Advocate for Employees

    I strongly endorse this Steve Sommers. He is a fierce and experienced advocate who is highly motivated to seek justice and dignity for his clients. He brings to his practice several years of experience as a labor organizer, which shows his dedication to employees who face illegal or poor treatment by their employer.

    Why attorneys Do have good names!

    This law firm took on an important case, but one that was difficult, because this law firm believes in justice, fairness, and the law with ethics.

    A Great Attorney with Heart and Muscle

    Words fall short of expressing my feelings and gratitude towards Steve Sommers. I was forced to find an attorney when I suddenly found myself being sued by a former business associate,

    I interviewed over five attorneys, all of whom, told me to accept what was being offered, to count my losses and walk away. I cannot begin to tell you how stressful this was.....

    Until, enter Steve Sommers... Steve took a look at the facts of my case, expressed his confidence in it, (or perhaps his abilities) and put his nose to the grindstone. He researched areas where he hadn't previously delved, and came up with a phenomenal strategy! We ended up settling out of court and for more time and money that I ever expected to see.

    Without Steve's intelligence, creative angles, and confidence, I would have been in debt for years to come, and would have had to close down my business.

    Now, with Steve as part of my team, I feel more secure in the small business world, knowing I have a smart, sharp, yet incredibly kind human being protecting me.

    There's Good, Better, but here's the BEST!

    I couldn'r believe that in this day and age a person could be terminated for being HIV+. Steve and his group handled my case with sensitivity, grace, dignity and achieved the results I was looking with only the minimal amount of involment from me. Steve helped me through a process I had never been involved with and made a negative into a positive I felt very good about.

    I hope I never need legal services again, but if and when the time comes again, there's only one person counceling me and Steve's the man.

    A trustworthy and caring expert

    After being targeted for dismissal unjustly by my employer I paid a visit to Steve to discuss my options. Steve spent hours with me uncovering all of the facts. It turned out that my employer had broken several California Employment laws; laws I didn’t know existed. It wasn’t easy to put together the case, we had to compile a lot of information and it was mind-numbing work. Throughout the process Steve gave me his full attention. My employer tried to paint of picture of me that was untrue. It was unsettling how they slandered me, but Steve kept me sane, told me I was right, they were wrong and stooped this low because they knew they were going to loose. He stayed in constant contact with me during the whole ordeal. His advice and approach was so spot on that we won the case hands down. I not only got a fair and just settlement, but also came out feeling good that these jerks got taught a good lesson. The best part was I could finally sleep soundly when it was over. I would recommend Steve and his associates any time if you are considering legal action against someone who has treated you unfairly.

    Highly Recommend

    We had been manipulated and taken advantage of and felt really powerless. Steve came highly recommended and did not dissappoint. He seemed to understand how we were feeling and was so much more knowlegable and professional than our former employers attny that it was almost comical. We hope to never go through another lawsuit but if that happens we will call Steve first for sure!

    Champion lawyer for the employee

    He doesn't back down from a fight. He is cool and calm and understands the big picture of litigation- not all lawyers do. At the time, I needed services I had been 'dumped' by other attorneys who felt my case wasn't strong, or it had allready been mishandled, or my oppositions lawyer was too powerful, or misintreputered the law all together and felt I had no case. Mr. Sommer was compassionate and gave me a voice finally. When I cashed that settlement check at the bank, it was pure joy watching the teller's eyes in disbelief at the money I was depositing. This Lawyer will win; he's a true champion.

    Steve Sommers

    I was having problems with my business partner stealing my artwork and selling it to his lovers company. I had been through 2 previous lawyers and six years before Steve took the case. It was quite a mess at that point. Steve resolved the case out of court and got me a settlement in under a year.

    He was in constant communication with me and kept me involved and informed every step of the way. I'm quite sure that if I ever needed a lawyer again it would be Steve.
