    • I do not recommend Steven Cone.
    • I hired Steven more than 3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Not only did this attorney charge me for time he had to spend looking up basics of his field, he charged me for communicating with the other party, which I asked him not to do, and didn't even realize he needed to request a financial statement from the other party so he could assess the proposed financial modification. There isn't anything good I can say about this attorney.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I regret that with this client I did not make it clear that I do not know all the law and will do research when necessary to properly represent a client. Since lawyers often bill by the hour research time shows up when it wouldn't with other professionals who charge a flat rate like medical doctors.
      Similarly, in litigation talking to the other side is necessary for negotiation and scheduling among other things. Again this is part of a litigator's job and I should have made it more clear to this client that that would be part of what I would do.
