    • I recommend Steven Kesten.
    • I hired Steven < 1 month ago.
    • Steven handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    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 Kesten and his associates are excellent attorneys whom help me resolve my case. They were very professional and at the same time sympathize with what I was going through. 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. I highly recommend to anyone who needs assistant, who wants an attorney who has tons of Knowledge, Trustworthy, and Supportive. Give Steven Kesten a call.

    Steve is not only one of the best attorneys in his field, but he is also a wonderful person.

    • I recommend Steven Kesten.
    • Steven handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    I had an issue with my previous employer. I tried to just walk away from the situation and forget about it by working immediately for another employer, even though the previous employer offered to get me a paid rest period! I wanted to take the high road! After 18 months went by I realized I needed to stand up for myself. Steve took the case and made me feel more comfortable than I thought I could ever be with regards to letting my side be heard in front of a labor board commissioner. I feel such a relief by finally standing up for myself and my coworkers, I have freedom! I have always thought I would never need an attorney, thought money isn't worth fighting over; although, I never considered I might need an attorney to get me peace of mind!
