We worked with Steve Kesten for almost 2 years. Ours was a very complicated and long process due to the nature of the issue. We found Steve to be an excellent communicator, an effective problem solver, and a no nonsense attorney. We were dealing with different entities and it was very stressful for all of us as we had a lot at stake for our Non-Profit. Steve kept us informed and up to date on our situation as sometimes it changed daily. Steve was also able to keep us grounded and on track when things became overwhelming as they do during an event like we had. With Steve's ability and knowledge we were an effective team and came to a resolve. We will continue to work with Steve Kesten as needed and keep up our relationship with him.

A few residents made a complaint to a county agency. The county agency made many threats of litigation and demands for large sums of money. Steve Kesten carefully reviewed all complaints as well as a investigation by a licensed investigator. Steve responded to all threats with documentation that the complaints had no merit and were frivolous. Without Steve Kesten proper legal response, the board of directors would probably have faced a law suit. Steve Kesten was able to provide documentation of no wrong doing. I would rate Steve Kesten a 5 star attorney. He understood the legal & political considerations. No money was paid and the county agency has dropped all actions.

I met with Steve on a warm spring day back about a year ago. My partner and I had found ourselves in a unique situation with some unscrupulous Employers. Steve met with me for about an hour and by the end of the hour I was convinced Mr. Kesten was the attorney to help us.
There were many bumps in the road, the defendants put up almost every road block they possibly could and true to himself, he helped us through to the end. I am happy to say we prevailed.
We always received a prompt reply and his staff always went out of their way to help us with what we needed. Thank you again Steve.

Our first impression of Steve Kesten when we talked with him over the phone was of a straightforward, like able, and very knowledgeable individual. Although we knew nothing about law, we had an urgent need to find an attorney we could rely on, and after a few minutes of talking to Steve over the phone we knew we had found our Attorney; he won us over with his sense of confidence, knowledge, honesty, and many years of experience in his field. As we progressed further in our case with Steve, our positive first impression of Steve only continued to reinforce itself. Steve went to great lengths to explain what was possible, what we could expect from our case. Whenever we sent him an email detailing our fears and concerns, he would always respond promptly and thoroughly, and explain everything. Like wise, he would respond to our phone calls promptly, and he would always be available even at the most unlikely times of the week. Our case lasted approximately 10 months, but throughout that entire time, Steve always made himself available to us, and always addressed our fears and concerns. Steve was able to accurately predict the various phases that the case would be entering, what would be happening next, the reaction of the opposing party, almost on a week by week basis. Steve also accurately predicted the compensation we would be receiving as plaintiffs in our case. In the final stage of our case, during our depositions and mediations, Steve expertly guided us and kept us on the correct track. The kind of confidence and command of the legal process he displayed is only possible with an attorney with years of experience, resolutely plying his trade with passion and integrity. In addition to all this Steve also went out of his way to help us with items that were not directly related to our case, such as representing us in court to help us to obtain unemployment benefits after we were wrongfully terminated.
With Steve Kesten as your attorney, there is not too much that can go wrong, you are truly in good hands.

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.

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.
