Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Richard A. Roth

    I unconditionally endorse Stephen. Stephen is an attorney who I have known for close to ten years. He is bright, professional, creative and extremely knowledgeable for any type of bankruptcy, big or small. I have worked closely with Stephen and have referred him several individuals and corporations, all of whom praise his intelligence and his abilities. He is also someone who can analyze a comprehensive, complex bankruptcy and is able to easily see through the maze. He is also a very effective negotiator, a skill frequently used by bankruptcy counsel, and can fight the fight, if necessary to bring the desired result. He is a winner!
