  • Jeffrey B. Lampert

    I have known Stephen Press to be an outstanding member of the legal community in Palm Beach County for decades. What Steve brings to the table is more than the X's and O's of family law but a true passion to obtain the best possible result for his client AND, if children are involved, the ENTIRE family. Not all results can be measured in dollars and cents, for the parties and their children and other family members will be a unit long after the divorce decree has been signed. Mr. Press has a genuine concern for the well-being of the family unit, and his legal knowledge in the areas of his practice is extensive.
