Eric is one of the best attorneys I know. He knows the law of course, but just as important Eric takes the extra steps to help people out when they ask for that extra needed help. That goes along way in my book in who I believe should be an attorney---professional, competent and someone who goes above and beyond.
Response from Eric Steiden January 30, 2020
Thanks so much Rob, and thanks for the referrals and the trust. We receive many referrals from other attorneys, and there is no greater compliment for us than when another highly-respected attorney sends his or her clients to us.

Eric Steiden is, hands down, the BEST bankruptcy attorney around. I have never asked a question he did not have the answer to. In addition to that, he is always readily available to take a call or answer an email. I cannot say enough good things about him and how he treats his clients.
Response from Eric Steiden June 25, 2018
Thanks so much Carly. We reply to inquiries from our clients 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and always the same day.

Unquestionably THE BEST Bankruptcy Firm in Greater Cincinnati!
I had interviewed and experienced three other law firms before I contacted and chose Steiden Law. I am most grateful for the time Eric Steiden and Dan Zegarski took initially to review my case and the decision they ultimately made to represent me. With the history and complexity of my case, they could have easily and safely chosen to decline. Instead, they took my case and together we formulated a plan that went like clockwork and ultimately worked out totally in my best interest. I had an unusual and complex bankruptcy case which also involved my business and a foreclosure on my personal home by an over aggressive lender. Eric and his staff have a wealth of knowledge and combined with their attention to detail, insight and ability to plan for future events, they clearly are a superior Bankruptcy Law Firm who can handle anything. They spent all the time necessary at each of my events and we even communicated on three separate occasions between 11 pm and midnight in order to file with the court timely in my interest. They were there for me every step of the way as I needed. The skill, knowledge and expertise of everyone at Steiden Law who played a role in helping me have totally changed my life. The office staff “Erin, Amy & Tammy” were extremely knowledgeable about my case and procedures and handled everything timely for me whenever the attorneys were involved with other cases. There was never a time when I could not get the assistance I needed or have an issue addressed. I am so much better off now than I have been in many years. Everyone at this firm are experts in addition to being highly proficient!

Breathing easier.
In early 2015 due to unforeseen credit problems I found myself seeking financial help. I chose Steiden Law Office to help me. My first visit with Erin's helpfulness made the process bearable. My attorney Eric Steiden was very helpful in helping me file chapter 13. This firm showed so much care and professional help to me dealing with this stressful situation. I would definitely recommend Steiden Law Office for people in similar situations to use.

Steiden Law Offices are great to work with. I would recommend them to everyone. I was very satisfied from start to finish with my case.

Appreciate the kind comments. We really are available just about all the time, and while the 24-hour answering service sometimes catches me actually trying to get some sleep, helping folks pull themselves out of such tough situations is truly meaningful. Seeing successful outcomes keeps us going back for more every day.

highly recommend
Not only did Eric and Tammy attend to my issue quickly after submitting my request, but it got resolved faster than I could have ever expected! I received a call the same day I submitted my request. Just a few days later, I received a follow up email - giving me the status. This email was even over the weekend from the Steiden offices to put my mind to rest before the new week started. As of 1 hour ago, my situation has been resolved! I could not thank the Steiden offices enough for the assistance. It's great to feel attended to and cared for during stressful times. I highly recommend this office.

Response from Eric Steiden October 24, 2015
Thanks Jennifer. We don't let things sit around in our office. We adhere to the idea that the best time to resolve an issue is right now, not tomorrow or the next day. I tell my staff to always consider what it feels like for them to have to wait for the unknown and to wonder about the next step when they are in need, so we try hard to provide answers to our clients immediately.
