Steve Shumer, of Berger, Fischoff and Shumer, LLP, was my attorney in my divorce. Steve was very attentive and always called back when I needed him. He gave me the confidence in court that everything I asked for I would get in due time but made me realize that divorce is a process and would definitely take time. His entire staff was very understanding and sensitive to me which gave me a sense of security during one of the hardest times of my life. I can say this for sure. I wouldn't want to be against Mr. Shumer in the court room and you can quote me on that.

I recently used Steven Schumer from Berger Fischoff & Schumer, LLP. I was referred to him by my Ex wife who had used him last year (not with me). She had great things to say about him and after using him I could not agree more. Steve was thorough, exact, and understanding throughout the whole process. Many times I tried to offer more than what I needed to. Steve constantly took time out to explain to me what was required and advise me against my own self damming wishes. The most important thing about working with Steve was that he met my needs by awarding my partner things I wanted to award her, while at the same time ensuring that I was protected from present or future litigation. A common term used by Steve was, “Stop, you hired me to protect you let me do my job.” Each time he said that I felt comfortable I was in good hands. In the end he did accomplish things I wanted to accomplish and best of all I was protected. I highly recommend Steve to anyone going through a difficult situation. He is caring and professional and has the utmost expertise in his field.

"I retained Steven Shumer, of Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, to handle the change of custody of my teenage son. Steven and his staff always made the best interests of my son the greatest priority. Steven's open lines of communication with his clients are exceptional. Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, came highly recommend to me and I, too, now highly recommend their services as well.

Steven Shumer is as genuine of an attorney as they come. He goes above and beyond in ALL matters. He has spoken with clients I have sent to him, ones he cannot assist, but takes the time to listen and point them in the right direction. He listens to his colleagues and gives excellent career advice and legal advice. He is genuine, friendly, intelligent and most importantly, personable. He will never ignore a phone call. In the field of law he practices, dealing with divorcing spouses is not always a walk in the park. His persona makes a difficult process as "pleasant" as it can be. While I have never seen Steve in a bankruptcy context, if his work in bankruptcy parallels his work in divorce and family matters, then he is a top notch bankruptcy attorney as well. No questions asked, should the unpleasant topic of divorce arise, Steve is the attorney you want holding your hand during the process. He is worthy of this endorsement without question.

I highly recommend Steven Shumer to all my clients. Steve is not only an expert in his area of practice, but has an ability to relay complex and difficult ideas in a manner that is easy to comprehend and understand. This versatility is uncommon in the legal profession and separates Steven from his peers.
