If I could give more stars I would. Highly recomend.
I Hired Mr. Tabano to handle my divorce. I feel that was money very well spent. I am amazed at how quickly he got results and how easy everything was in my case. Very friendly to deal with. And his fee is very fair. He explained what the different routes we could take if things didnt go as easy as they did, and the costs if it came to going that route, but he was also looking for every way to keep costs as low as possible. But like I said, he got results much sooner than I expected. I really didnt think anything would really happen until June when we started the process in the beginning of Feburary. Then covid. So I expected it to take longer. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Reliability and caring are great attributes.
Steve represented me in two different child custody cases. The outcome was what was fair and expected. Even having questions when he was unavailable, Steve would call and discuss my cases on his drive home. My respect went so far as to refer some in-laws and their family members , who were also happy with the final results. I even called him earlier this evening to discuss a close friends awkward situation. I am sure I will hear from him tomorrow concerning this situation.

Excellent attorney
I chose Attorney Tabano to handle my divorce case and I couldn't be happier with his services. He handled every aspect of the case with prompt efficiency, but maintained a caring and calming nature throughout. He was there for any question I had, even during non-regular work hours. He even followed up after the case was closed to make sure everything had gone well. I would highly recommend him!

Made my divorce so easy
Granted my divorce wasn't a complicated one and was uncontested but his work and communication was always prompt and appropriate for the situation and he was excellent at explaining the process and any potential hiccups and how we would deal with them if need be in a way that was helpful and calming. I'm very pleased with his service and if I ever need a lawyer again I will definitely go to him. Exactly what I needed and for a fair price without feeling like he was trying to gouge me.

Steve Tabano is the best family attorney!
Steve Tabano is a reliable, honest and compassionate attorney. He took on my support, child custody and my divorce. He would never sugar coat things but he also stood up for me during the very emotional parts of my case. He fought hard for my daughter and for myself and his focus has always been on my child, not "winning" or getting even. He helped in my custody case by making sure that my daughter will be in a very safe environment when she is not in my custody. He also helped me with all of my child support needs and made the entire divorce process relatively stress free. I was able to receive alimony and kept my health insurance for two years. I highly recommend him, he is down to earth, honest and compassionate. His focus is not on money, but on helping others. He is the best! I never want to work with any other attorney.

Attorney Tabano represents my daughter in a custody case. He is very aware of her/our concerns and addresses them in a professional and timely manner.

Very Happy with Mr. Tabano and his abilities
I am very pleased with the work Mr. Tabano has done. My custody, support and divorce issues were a little odd in some regards and Mr. Tabano was able to navigate through so many scenarios with professionalism and respect for all the parties involved. Keeping me informed on progress and task management was paramount for me and Mr. Tabano excelled in this area as well.

Trusted Attorney
Steve, as he likes to be called by his clients is one that I would recommend. He represented me during a very long divorce period. Engaging and talking with him throughout the process made things bearable. Steve made every attempt to reassure me that despite this unpleasant "change" in my life, that things would be better.

Steve is a very honest lawyer, keeps you informed all the way through. Have used him on several occasions. Would recommend using his services.

"Attorney Tabano is an excellent litigator. He works hard for his clients and still has a calming presence in the courtroom. Great attorney and highly recommended."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Apr 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Attorney Tabano is a skilled and experienced attorney who won't shy away from a necessary fight, but who will always look for less contentious alternatives to cut through the red tape and get the job done. Some lawyers like to play ego games and grandstand on their clients' dime, but you won't get that from him. I consider him a respected colleague, and an honorable opponent."
