Steve Abel is, in my opinion, the most skilled and experienced family law mediator working in Rockland County. He is deeply committed to providing families with creative ways to resolve even the most complex divorce without the pain of litigation. As he also maintains a busy practice as a traditional divorce trial lawyer, Steve is able to provide his mediation clients with clear and accurate insights into how a Judge might analyze and/or resolve the issues they are facing. I have referred many clients who come to me for traditional "trial by battle" cases to Steve instead to explore the possibility of using mediation. I have been very pleased over the years to see so many of them contact me later to advise that he was able to help them avoid a courtroom, avoid the chaos and potentially save tens of thousands of dollars in counsel fees. I highly recommend Steve to anyone seeking a skilled, ethical and experienced mediator.
