A Top Shelf Attorney
I met Steven a few years back through another attorney. I was in need of a Real Estate lawyer who had experience in dealing with complicated real estate transaction. He not only contacted me right away , he provided an in depth explanation of the issues at hand and guided me through the process to a quick and painless solution. If not for his vast experience and ability to navigate what ws some "dangerous" waters the deal would have never completed..From that point on, ive used Steven in every transaction im involved with. I can assure anyone, that they will not find a more competent and professional lawyer than Steven.

As a Boston lawyer I have had the honor and privilege of working with Attorney Brooks and was, frankly, very impressed with his ability to prevail against a very powerful adversary in a complex case. Thanks for the experience, Steve.

"Early in my legal career I was opposing counsel against Attorney Brooks in criminal matters. He was always well-prepared and zealously defended his clients. When I left the District Attorney's office and opened my own practice, he was one of the first lawyers from whom I sought advice. Over the years I have dealt with Attorney Brooks in many different areas including real estate and corporate law. He is one of the most competent, hard-working and dedicated lawyers that I know. He enjoys a stellar reputation in the legal community among his clients, colleagues, judges and court personnel. I personally trust his judgment, legal acumen and common sense and have sought his counsel and advice on many occasions."
