Integrity and utter reliability
Over the past 20+ years my partner and I have used Stephen Bacon for wills, living wills, power of attorney documents, and half a dozen real estate transactions. He has been unfailingly articulate, realistic, smart in his advice, and prompt in executing whatever we needed done. The office staff is also very responsive, and his assistant for real estate, Cindy Foley, is an ace at what she does. There's a reason we keep going back.

House closing
I was very pleased with Atty. S. Bacon. While looking at different homes he did research and was very informative. If it wasn't for his knowledge and expertise. I would have been in a situation that would of cost me money and heartache. He was very prompt in returning my calls and emails. He even took time to call me after hours and weekends. He made sure I understood everything and all my paperwork was in order and very quick. I will definitely use him for any further legal needs that might come up in the future. Lisa D.

Steve Bacon is excellent.
I recently used Steve Bacon for a real estate closing, as I have since 1998 for this type of transaction as well as for wills and estate planning. Steve has always been a pleasure to work with on both personal and professional levels. He has been consistently and readily responsive to my inquiries and requests, very knowledgeable about his areas of practice, and extremely careful and thorough in advising me and preparing legal documents for my needs. He is not only a highly competent attorney but a very decent human being. I recommend him without reservation.
