Top Shelf
Steve is very on top of things. He is very helpful and patient. He guides couples through the process. And listens and responds when email or called.

My immigration case
Stephen Black represented me for my immigration case. He charged a fair price and the case had a successful outcome. I would use his services in the future if need be. Thanks Mr Black.

Good experience
I hired Steve for my wife's immigration green card case. He sat us down told us what would happen and his fees were very reasonable. The case went exactly like he said and he was always prompt in getting back to us with questions. I would hire him again if need be.

very happy
I hired Steve for an animal attack case. The 2 prior lawyers dropped the case and so I made one last attempt. Steve took the case and we won. We achieved a good settlement. I highly recommend him. When you hire Steve, you will talk to him directly, not a paralegal or a secretary..you will talk to Steve. He went above and beyond in explaining the whole process to me. In addition to being your lawyer, he will become your friend. Overall, I was very happy and I would hire him in an instant again if the need arose.

Serious Restaurant Injury with Happy $ Ending
My father-in-law slipped and seriously injured himself in a fast food joint and Mr. Black was instrumental in outlining and executing the steps we had to take to win a suit against them and their insurance company. Stephen took his time explaining our options, etc. Eventually we settled (right before the court date!) My FIL's medical bills were all paid AND he was awarded a well deserved rainy day fund he's using for his retirement.

Stellar lawyer
Attorney Black wasn't our initial choice but after our phone chat it was obvious he was our man. Our case wasn't Slam/ Dunk (many gray areas) yet we won on account of his insightful book smarts & tenacious negotiations/ dealings with the counter party. Highly Recommended!
