excellent attorney
Mr. Kuhn represented me in my divorce in 2005. His knowledge and expertise were apparent. The reason I retained him was because he was honest and gave me reasonable expectations. I felt my needs were always tended to by Mr. Kuhn and his paralegal Frances. I retained Mr. Kuhn in 2014 for a custody matter. His demeanor is comforting and I feel at ease knowing my case is important to my attorney just as it is to me!

My DIvorce
Im very lucky to have found Mr. Kuhn. Previously I was not confident in my situation...or my lawyer. Then I was recommended to Mr. Kuhn, and he handled my divorce fast and effectively. After seeing him hard at work in the courts and always keeping me informed, I knew I was in good hands. I would definitely recommend him.

Look No Further - A True Experienced Professional
Divorce is a very stressful and emotional event. Steven was with me every step of the way. Throw into that a very uncooperative and unreasonable family member. Steven was able to keep me grounded and show me that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Steven is a true professional and his experience clearly stands out. What impressed me the most was Steven's character. It was clear to me that Steven always acted by keeping my best interests in terms of finances and emotional support in the forefront. It was this that guided me in being able to make objective and sound decisions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steven to my family, friends and colleagues.

My personal experiences with Steve Kuhn, Esq.
I first met Steve some twenty years ago through the Suffolk County Police Benevolent Association's recommendation. At that time, I was seeking representation on my behalf in beginning divorce proceedings. Mr. Kuhn was my confidant, supporter and legal adviser in an endless and uncooperative divorce. I was pleased with my representation and the character of Mr. Kuhn. I was indebted to Steve and remained in contact with him throughout the years. During the course of my career, I had several opportunities, where several family, friends and co-workers sought my advice on various legal matters from matrimonial matters to many other facets of general law. Without hesitation, I would urge them to seek legal counsel with Mr. Kuhn. In fact, many of them did and they have all thanked me. I again, also had the opportunity to utilize Steve's expertise in another personal legal issue such as the adoption of my daughter. He was knowledgeable and instrumental in all aspects of the process. My wife and I to this day are totally indebted to him. I am now retired and have continued my relationship with Mr. Kuhn and will continually recommend his legal services to anyone that inquires.
