Mr. Effman saved my case!! I had used another local divorce lawyer for my divorce- she was ok - not good enough to use again or recommend. So when I unexpectely had a family issue I did not want to use her , and i found someone I thought was good- but his "work" made matters worse! Lucky for me- I heard about Mr. Effman and decided to hire him to finish my family type case. He stepped right in and fixed all the mistakes -In literally the first 3 days of being represented by Mr. Effman he did more than the attorney I fired for the same case did in12 weeks!!!! What a huge difference. Mr. Effman is an amazing attorney. I was the innocent party in my case and the other attorney was calling all the shots! If I didnt hire Steve- I would of not gotten the
desired result and otherside would of unjustly won because I didnt hire the right attorney! Thank you so MUCH!!

Paid him more than 30k and failed with everything. Ended up hiring another attorney to finish my divorce. Makes false promises and backs out of everything. Take your money with unnecessary meetings and conversations after which he never follows up with the other attorney. If there were negative stars this attorney would receive them. My 5 year old could've represented me better.
