Steven was terrific in helping me create a set of contracts for my business, as well as helping me improve my lease agreement that we use for a housing rental. For the business, Steven was very thorough in identifying weaknesses in the contracts, and in guiding me in making choices on various points in the contracts. As a business owner, employer and landlord, I feel that Steven's advice was rock solid and I am very relieved to have had Steven do my contracts. His style is relaxed, no pressure, and he asks a ton of questions that helps me to know what I don't know. Steven never assumed I'd want a particular clause, and instead had a very open, engaging way of working with me. He was extremely timely in his turnaround of documents, and very flexible in setting meetings. Unlike other lawyers I have worked with, Steven's approach is to make me smarter about my business and legal positioning. I highly recommend Steven for small businesses who want a great dialogue, and legal advice from someone who also has his own small businesses.

I suffered a massive flood at a townhouse I was renting in January 2014, which ultimately left my boyfriend and myself, as well as our two dogs, completely homeless. That’s in addition to the massive property losses incurred. Although the upstairs tenants were 100 percent responsible for what happened, it wasn’t long before the landlord, the upstairs owners and their shared insurance company felt like a united front against us.
Within the first month, I knew we needed an attorney and started calling everyone I could find. Most didn’t even call me back, and those that did were dismissive and ridiculously overpriced. Steven Krieger returned my call within hours and I very nearly committed to him during our first conversation—within 24 hours I’d committed entirely. Honestly, it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
It turned out that we had a long and bumpy road ahead of us. Within months our landlord illegally moved to evict us, despite the property being essentially condemned and loaded with asbestos, at the same time the insurance company stopped funding our hotel accommodations. Steven’s guidance throughout the process allowed us to keep our sanity, which is something that is vital when you have to find a new home in less than five days, in order to avoid homelessness.
He handled all communications for us and was in communication exactly as much he needed to be. When there was a lull in our case’s progress, there was a lull in billable hours—absolutely no surprises. He was extremely flexible with payment arrangements and methods, with a very reasonable retainer, and was very open and up front about billing. It was an extremely bad time for us financially, but even so, his rate never seemed unreasonable.
Throughout the entire ordeal I maintained meticulous financial records, tracking every loss and expense. Although I tabulated our losses at upwards of $25k, I never expected to get anywhere near that, mostly because that number was reached assuming everything we lost was brand new, which obviously wasn’t the case. I figured they’d probably offer us half that in the end, and that would be fine. When we got a settlement offer in November, it was for just over $26k.
I know for certain that Steve was integral to the successful outcome we achieved. Emotions were running so high for us at the time that it was impossible to keep a level head and deal the many roadblocks as they came. I highly recommend him to anyone looking legal representation in any sort of landlord-tenant dispute—or anything else really.

After a pipe burst in the unoccupied apartment above ours, my wife and I found ourselves in a terrible situation--through no fault of our own, we were stuck in a situation where much of our property was destroyed and our home was unlivable. We tried to be pragmatic and fair with our landlord and the insurance company, but we quickly found ourselves backed in a corner; with no place to live temporarily, or through the duration of our lease.
We needed a legal representation and after reaching out to a dozen lawyers, the first to respond was Steven. And the fact he called back first wasn't what sold us (though it was a great first impression), he was straightforward about our situation and willing to work with our financial situation. Our decision to hire Steven was an easy one, but our experience thereafter made it a smart one. He was patient when we were not. He has his eye on the big picture when the stress made us just see today. His approach wasn't just good for us, it assured that the other parties we were dealing with were willing to negotiate.
In the end, he not only helped us navigate a period of uncertainty, he helped us rebuild our life.
