I've called upon Steve Kesten a few times for legal guidance when potentially troublesome situations cropped up. They weren't huge projects... but I believe the true color of a person is shown in the smaller moments--moments that, when handled promptly and with kindness, can defuse a situation before it becomes a catastrophe.
Steve has always been willing to make the time, get involved, scout out the necessary resources, and give prompt, actionable, sage advice. He earns my trust every time I reach out to him.
As the managing director of a nanny placement agency I enciunter numerous challenges with parents and nannies on how to navigate the personal and legal challenges that inevitably come up in their working relationships. Mr Kesten has always been there to respond immediately and knowledgeably to answer questions,provide wisdom, guidance and prevent a potentially problematic situation from Escalating. In addition to giving 'as-needed-advice, Mr. Kesten provides considerable information and support to set a foundation in the beginning employer : employee relationship to prevent potential problems from occurring. I highly recommend him !
There are not words to express my deepest appreciation to Steven Kesten of Kesten Law for his legal expertise and kindness in helping me in an arena I would never have usually chosen to be involved in. There wasn't anything I didn't feel completely at ease speaking with Steven about in regards to my case. It is only because Steven was my attorney that I could get through a grueling legal process to completion. If you're shopping the legal market in search of a seasoned, honest, humanistic attorney to work with, I would strongly encourage you to meet Steven Kesten. I seriously doubt that you will search any further.
I found him both "hard-nosed" about what had to be done and willing to tell me things that I may not have wanted to hear, while being compassionate. Most of all, he had a strategy, was focused and SKILLED with other legal professionals at my hearing. We succeeded in getting me unemployment after leaving an employment situation under difficult circumstances. I also learned about law in general from Steve, because he is willing to really teach and seems to truly care.
Steven is a great attorney who works diligently on behalf of his clients. He is very knowledgeable and explains clearly the pros and cons. He advocates fiercely for a fair setttlement

No matter how difficult my case was and how much time they put time they put into it, they always kept me calm and were supportive of what I'm going through. Steven and his associates are very knowledgeable and always kept me informed of everything and explains it, in ways I could understand. Steven, my family and I would like to extend a Thank You to you and your associates for everything you have done for us.

For the last 20 years Steve has been a trusted counseler to my business. We have had several issues regarding bad debts and breach of contracts, and we have always come out on the positive side, mainly due to Steves, knowledge, persistance, and attention to detail. I would highly recommend his services to any business owner.

Steve is not only one of the best attorneys in his field, but he is also a wonderful person. I called Steve during one of the hardest times in my life and not only was he able to help find a good legal solution, he was incredibly kind throughout the process. Legal problems can be very emotional and Steve was able to guide me through the madness with the utmost professionalism.
