Robert Stephen Review
My family and I are greatful for the help that Rob has done for us through a very difficult time. He continues to move our process forward with his dedication and persistance.

Highly Recommend
After being involved in a motor vehicle accident in which I sustained physical and cognitive injuries, I contacted Attorney Robert Stephen. Having never been involved in such a case, I had no idea what to expect. Attorney Stephen was knowledgeable, approachable and easy to work with. I never felt as if my questions were a burden to him or his team, and felt I was treated with respect by all members of his staff. He kept me informed of progress in my case and was available via phone and email for questions. I believe Attorney Stephen achieved the best possible resolution to my case, dealing with both my insurer and that of the at fault party to ensure that I received maximum compensation for my injuries. I would highly recommend Attorney Stephen for any legal matters.

MV (Drunk Driver) vs. Minor teenage pedestrian
At the end of July 2022, my then-13-year-old son was mowing our neighbors lawn and subsequently was struck by a drunk driver. He suffered a deep laceration to his forearm requiring 10 stitches and an aftercare appointment. I was recommended to hire Attorney Stephen by a colleague and I immediately hired him upon discussion of the case. Attorney Stephen handled everything, from acquiring bills to paying them, keeping me informed every step of the way. The process with Attorney Stephen was effortless on our behalf. He handled all paperwork, negotiations and discussions with insurance and reported back always in a timely fashion. He treated our family with care and respect and not just as paying clients. Although not involved in the criminal case against the driver, he still took the time from his day to appear next to us in Superior court and support my son and I during her plea and sentencing- which my son and I are extremely grateful for. Attorney Stephen ensured the best possible final number for my son. He handled the annuity and was diligent about reviewing and explaining the process and paperwork with my husband and I. His prices were fair and reasonable and he explained his costs to us in plain verbiage and there was no confusion. We felt confident in Attorney Stephen throughout the entire process and would absolutely hire him again if necessary and recommend him to anyone seeking a personal injury attorney.

Really good Attorney
Attorney Stephen is amazing. I had called a couple other attorneys before I saw his name on Google. The first Attorney I called never got back to me and the second said it wasnt worth his time. From the beginging Attorney Stephen was on top of everything, through the entire process he stayed in contact with me and would get back to me very promptly when I had questions. I will be able to take care of upcoming medical bills for a long time becauae Attorney Stephen helped me to recover 3 times what would normally be expected for the sort of injury I had from my car accident. I have recently recommended him to a good friend who had an issue at a hospital. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would use him again in a heartbeat if I were to ever need an attorney. I simply cannot say enough good things about him to express my gratitude for his hard work.If you ever read this Attorney Stephen, thank you so much for all you did for me.

Review of Attorney Robert S. Stephen
I contacted Attorney Robert Stephen for the best legal representation possible regarding an automobile accident I was involved in 2 years ago which included extensive injuries and medical expenses. He was extremely prompt in returning my phone call when searching for an attorney. He immediately made contact with the insurance company of the insured motorist who caused the accident and begin the first step in speaking with the claim agent. A file containing detailed information was created and from that point on Attorney Stephen stayed in contact with me and provided copies of all communication between himself and the claim agent and updated me by phone and email.. He represented me and negotiated my case in a very professional manner with specific and detailed information regarding my injuries to justify my claim. After much negotiation and arguing each offer, a settlement was reached much to my satisfaction. If I ever needed an attorney again to act on my behalf I would not hesitate to call Attorney Stephen again.

I would absolutely recommend attorney Robert Stephen to anyone needing legal counsel. Last year I was in a car accident, but having attorney Stephen on my side, helped me a lot. I am really impressed with his professionalism and knowledge. Any time I had a question, he will respond to my e-mail immediately. He showed respect and care. He spent a lot of time answering my questions, because he wanted to be sure that I understand everything and that I feel comfortable in this matter. Working with him was pleasure, and at the end, I am more than satisfied with my final settlement.

an honest guy
Attorney Stevens represented me in a personal injury case. He was amazing. I was involved in an auto accident and beyond being a great lawyer, he was honest and compassionate. I felt like he really, truly cared about my well being. I had heard a lot of bad things about lawyers but he proved them all wrong. Attorney Stevens is now my go to guy when I have any legal issues. It is very comforting to know that someone has my back because life can get really crazy sometimes!
