Outstanding attorney!!
Steve Kommor is the best attorney I have ever had! He is outstanding at what he does and always puts the children’s best interest first. Steve genuinely cares about people and made me feel like my case mattered to him which is truly important in my opinion. He advocates for his clients and gets the best possible outcome. Steve has been my attorney for 16 years and I can honestly say he has never let me down. I highly recommend Steven Kommor! He has wealth of legal knowledge and experience and is an overall wonderful person!

Couldn’t be more happier
I got a DUI for the first time and I never have been more scared in my life. Since the first time I met Mr. Kommor, he made sure that everything would be okay. I was explained all the possible outcomes and if I ever had any questions, he made sure I could reach out at anytime. I am very happy with choosing Mr. Kommor to represent me. He made it a better learning process!

Great lawyer
Went to Steve with a bunch of questions after recently separating from my wife. He is very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. He answered all my questions and made me feel confident about how to proceed.

Compassionate!!!!!
I came across Mr. Kommor, a couple of years back. My case was already about 7 or 8 years old. The Lawyer I had honestly was HORRIBLE!!!!. He didn’t fight for my rights. He just rushed through the case as if he didn’t care and forced me to plead guilty. Mr. Kommor had opened my eyes to realizing soooooo much that this other Lawyer had not really made me aware of. . He is so relaxing and actually talks as an understanding person and not just a Lawyer out for his pockets. I have grateful enjoyed working with him on my case. He has even went out of his way to go on further to help me, since my case could have been solved a different way. He is GREAT, I RECOMMEND him to ANYONE!!!!

Stunned
I went to Mr. Kommor to handle a civil matter. I had seen three lawyers before him and they all asked for a big fee. I really could not understand why they were charging so much for something that seemed very simple. I contacted Mr. Kommor and he met with me immediately. He sat with me for an hour and explained how he would not take any money from me because all I had to do was fill out some forms. He then gave me the forms I needed and, as promised, did not charge me for his consultation. A lawyer who refused to take money? Maybe things are not as bad in the world as I thought. I also have to say that his assistant was so sweet and nice. She made me feel very comfortable and actually made me laugh. Thanks Mr. Kommor. You are my lawyer forever.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE !!!
I highly recommend Steve Kommor to be your representative when it comes to family court. I can honestly say after dealing with many people in life, you don’t come across very many people like this man. I have learned over the years, go with your gut, if it’s doesn’t feel right, move on and don’t look back! Steve will tell you right from the start what to expect and not fabricate some lame excuse or B.S. you! He has proven to me that it takes knowledge to provide positive results for dealing with some difficult situations. He’s got it! Don’t hesitate to contact him. Steve will provide you with the best service, listen to you and help. Contact him without delay, you’ll be very satisfied with the result! Thank You, Steve!

Top Shelf
Mr. Kommor has won every legal battle he has fought for me in family court. His experience and ability to distill issues into legal arguments is top shelf. His expedience will save you money. He is a gentleman and generous beyond any other attorney. He tackled and won an appeal with ease. He is ethical and immensely patient-he explained my taxes to me over and over again, in prep for a child support hearing-when I still didn't understand.

I am proud of you Steve as my legal representative-your words and actions speak integrity and are honorable! I will always recommend you!

What can be said?
I found Mr. Kommor on a frantic "Chilf Support Attorney" Google search. Out of all the people that came up before his name that I called, he was the only one willing to sit with me, work with me and guide me. He took time out of his day to visit with me and was kind (even though I accidentally spilled sparkling water on the carpet). Very patient. Overall awesome human being !

Like hiring Alan Shore from Boston Legal
Steven Kommor is a highly skilled lawyer. He cuts to the heart of matters saving you massive legal fees. During my week long divorce trial I saw Mr. Kommor cross examine an expert CPA with such skill and preparation, he came across like he was an accountant as well. Steven asked all the right questions to find many errors the forensic cpa had included in his report due to lack of information. This probably saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars. When horrible lies were told about me during the trial, Steven used his amazing skill and professionalism to get to the truth and vindicate me. I trust him. All of my concerns were addressed. I felt he came prepared. When I told him lies were being told about me, he believed me and found the proof we needed in the opposition's discovery. He was so good his adversary offered him a position doing her trials. Thank you Steven

A 6 1/2 Year Divorce
Due to issues with my X, this divorce took forever. She was never willing to settle, and never proposed anything resembling a fair offer. Steve stuck with me thru the entire ordeal. In the end, it turned out great. My home was saved, my retirement $ was saved, and I am finally free.

Compassionate
It was so nice to sit with Steven and have him explain in great detail how divorce would work for me. I felt so comfortable, all of my questions were answered in a language that was understandable. If you are looking for an attorney who will have your back, look no further, you have found your man.

Best lawyer.
Steven was my lawyer in a highly contested divorce battle. It was probably one of the most highly contested and crazy divorce battles ever. I had to deal with false accusations, defamation, parental alienation, investigators, forensics - it was a very rough custody battle. We won all that we wanted to win. Steven was simply amazing - on both, the professional and personal level. No other lawyer could have achieved what he achieved. He went above and beyond whenever necessary. Steven is dedicated to win and do what's right - and this is all that matters in a divorce.

Amazing & Caring! One of the Best in Business
I came to Steve about 3 years ago with a complicated child visitation case and I was only seeing my daughter 2 hours each weekend. My ex wife was putting all kinds of false allegations and it was a nightmare. Steve is not one of those guys that worries about payments; he is a father of two kids and truly understands the pain of a parent not being able to see their own kid. He never harassed me for payments and always kept it real. I truly appreciate Steve's assistance as I did not have a crazy big budget neither. He helped me out by settling on a very complex case. Thanks Steve!

Top Notch
Steve stuck with me through a simple divorce that turned into a nightmare. He was there every step of the way. He made himself available during Holidays. He was more than worth the money for the quality of service I received. I hope to never go through this again but if I have to I will cal Steve and I'll refer him to everyone I know.

Highly recommend
Steve Kommor helped me with my child support case. I was owed a very large sum since I had not been paid in seven years. Steve got the money that was owed to me. Also, he helped me with a custody case. As a result, I did receive custody as well. Although he is very aggressive in his tactics, which is something you want your lawyer to be. He is very kind to his clients. I would definitely recommend him.

Endorse Steven
Divorce and separation Attorney | Dec 09
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer because Steve possesses what I believe to be a highly sought-after (but often-lacking) trait in an adversary counsel. Specifically, he is professional and appropriate with other lawyers, the court, and all other professionals and para-professionals (which likely contributes to why he is so well-respected), even in very contentious cases, but he is also a fierce advocate for his clients and is one of the most formidable adversaries I can think of. I enjoy having cases with Steve because I know that I will be put to task but he is also honest and professional, making it easier for everyone to do their jobs and assist the family as best we can with divorce, which is an emotional and difficult time."
