Great Lawyer
Steven Asarch has been our lawyer for 18 years. He has set up estate planning for my husband and me, my Aunt and my cousin. We all have relied on Mr Asarch for many problems involving questions on ALL types of Florida law. We are originally from New York, and Mr Asarch is familiar with New York law , therefore he was able to answer questions concerning New York. He set up Estate Planning for us, my Aunt and my cousin (all Florida residents). My Aunt and my cousin have passed away, and Mr Asarch handled both their estates in a professional manner and without a problem. We are comfortable knowing we are in good hands.

Great Experience with Steven Asarch
My husband and I asked Mr. Asarch to help us put together a will/trust document for ourselves and our two daughters. He was thorough and professional. The process was comprehensive; however, he made it easy for the two of us who lead very busy lives. We would recommend him highly.

Estate Planning and Asset Protection
In my capacity as a CPA I have had the opportunity to work with Steve Asarch and his clients. These include wealthy families with complex estate planning and asset protection issues, families dealing with contentious directives left by decedents and beneficiaries of inherited wealth with little experience in handling the finances. Steve is extremely diligent in his research for and presentation to his clients and is thorough in his explanation of often complicated legal and tax scenarios in lay terms. Steve treats all clients with respect and everyone receives his full attention and expertise. I myself have relied on Steve as a resource for interpreting tax code related to estates and trusts and working with him and his clients. I would highly recommend Steve not only for his impeccable credentials but for his kind manner and his commitment to quality of service and advocacy on behalf of his client. he is truly a trusted advisor and the attorney I would want supporting me for all matters concerning estate planning.

A great lawyer - From my professional and personal experience
I am a financial advisor and highly recommend Steven to my clients for their estate documents and estate planning. I have known and worked with Steven for almost 20 years. On a personal level, Steven designed and prepared the estate documents for my wife's parents, and we later called on him to help settle the estate when my wife's father passed away. Since that time I have worked with Steven on many cases, including my own family. I engaged him to prepare an estate plan for my mother, and he was invaluable in helping me settle her estate when she later passed away. Steven is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, adept at navigating the complex Florida probate process, and easy to work with. Most importantly, I have utmost confidence in his skills, judgment, and advice. I highly recommend him without any reservations.

If you need an estate attorney he is the man for you.
We have used Steven for the past few years, first to redo our wills when we moved to Florida. After all was done and compelted, we needed to make some changes . In both cases we met with Steven, discussed what we wanted and he gave us the various choices we would have to make. With his guideance we completed everything necessary and we have the piece of mind to know it was done correctly and will be properly used when necessary. Steven is low pressure, cordial and friendly and we certainly would be happy to put our names on his client list. We did have him draw up the following documents, wills, trusts, medical forms, living wills. All the completed work was documented in a bound loose leaf binder so that all documents could be easily referenced when & if needed.

Glad Steve was there for us
Steve was a big help in settling my mother's estate. My brother and I live in different states, and for some reason the people managing my mother's investment accounts could not give us straight information. Steve helped us sort through things and finally achieve some resolution. he was friendly, courteous, and his fees were reasonable. Would definitely recommend him for anyone in Florida with estate issues.

SJA Review
I have been working with Steve Asarch, on a multiple amount of corporate and family estate issues, since I became a resident of Florida in 1994. Steve has helped me in areas that I had very little knowledge in and he worked comfortably with my accounting firm and attorneys that were located in the New England area. Together they enabled me to recently sell my business, up north, with a minimum amount of troubling issues and a significant return on investment.

Steven Asarch excellent trust attorney
Steven Asarch is very professional. He helped me with my brother's trust and always answered questions I had. He returned calls and emails that same day. I highly reccommend him.

Excellent Estate Tax Attorney
After relocating to Florida from NYC I sought a Florida Estate Planning attorney and attended an Estate Planning Seminar at which Steven Asarch was one of the speakers. I liked him immediately and after a one on one meeting, authorized him to create an Estate Planning Portfolio which included a Revocable Trust, Pour Over Will and other ancillary documents. It is now over 15 years that we have been working together. We meet periodically to review this material in light of my changing needs and changes in the tax law. I am happy with the work that Steve has done and feel confident I am in good hands.
