Great Divorce Lawyer
Mr. Sternberg is a great lawyer! His office filed all of the court paperwork with no problems. When I could not make it to court, he was quick to tell me what happened and had no problem sending documents by e-mail since I was not there. This way, I was able to find out what happened in court quickly. I found this to be very helpful because no one wants to wait for the mailman! When my husband was "playing games" with support, he wasted no time contacting my husband's attorney. His fees are reasonable and he is very professional. I hope that I won't need to go back to court, but if I do, I know that I will be calling Mr. Sternberg!

Highly recommended!
My divorce was very complicated and stressful but Lou helped me through the process. His fees were very reasonable and I would recommend him to anyone.

Professional & Reliable
Hiring Mr. Sternberg was a terrific decision. He was quick to act with required paperwork, kept me informed during the entire process, and was masterful in representing me in court. I hope to never have to hire another attorney again for the same reasons, but if I did, I would call Mr. Sternberg again. I highly recommend his services.

NOT a good lawyer.......BUT A GREAT LAWYER
I hired Louis after having a horrible experience with another Attorney who took close to a year on a simple divorce case. I had no assets or anything. However, with my previous attorney it got extremely difficult. When I fired him I hired Louis and Louis contacted my ex wife's attorney and started working with her immediately. My Ex's attorney was very irritated with my previous attorney however, within a few days of working with Louis she kept thanking him for moving the case along. He moved the case along quickly yet never did anything I disagreed with because he asked me if any major moves were ok first. Unlike my other attorney he read my agreement over the course of a weekend and got back to my ex wife's attorney on a Monday. We worked out some language and LITERALLY in 2 weeks everything was signed. My experience with Louis was that he is professional, organized, respectful and just wants to get the best job done for his client.

Knowledgeable and Professional
Mr. Sternberg did an excellent job handling my divorce proceedings. He provided guidance and insight through every step of the process. He is a true professional and definitely someone I would refer to somebody in a similar situation.

Great job on uncontested divorce
Lou represented me in the negotiation and drafting of my divorce agreement. He answered all of my questions and put me at ease during a very stressful period of my life.

Great Child Support Lawyer
Lou represented me in a child support case. The father was quite manipulative and hid assets. Lou was able to gain the records and paperwork about the assets so I could get a fair deal. He is always professional and timely in his responses. Lou did a great job at explaining the legal process and making me feel comfortable every step of the way. I'd recommend him to any of my friends.

Excellent Child Support Lawyer!
Louis represented me in a Suffolk County child support case in Suffolk County. His rates were very reasonable and he helped me win the case. I would strongly recommend him!

Unknowledgeable
I should of wrote this review a while ago, and guess I'm glad I didn't. Now I'm able to get my thoughts together and give a rather clear description of my experience with mr sternberg. At first I got the impression that he understood my circumstances and had a plan on how to represent me. Fast forward to the actual midgation, he was unprepared. In the actual conference I had with him during the midigation he starts yelling at me saying he never received a document ,which then I had to show him through an old email I sent him. Moreover, regardless whatever side your , he will show no compassion in a time that is very difficult for anyone.

Unaggressive
He is clearly not cut out for high conflict. Handled a lot of paperwork during litigation, albeit slowly, and billed accordingly for every minute. But ultimately he wouldn't do anything to fight for me as his client, and I lost a lot of ground in my case before I finally switched.
