Highly recommed
I contacted Steve requesting a consult and he returned my call with in hours. At our initial meeting I felt that he was able to clearly see the big picture and validated my situation. He worked diligently on my complex and challenging child custody case-advising, reassuring, answering my calls and emails patiently and consistently throughout the entire process. His tireless work ethic: extensive, thorough, always on time, resulted in a positive outcome for my family.

Thank you!
This was my second time asking Steve for his services at a moment when I couldn’t see a way out. After my consultation, I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Steve had an answer and provided results faster than I thought. Very professional and most of all, he showed compassion and the willingness to help. I appreciate the work done on my behalf by Steve and would recommend Hope Law Firm to everyone. Thanks again!

Awesome attorney
Steve did a wonderful job with my child custody case. He was always right on top of things and stayed very attentive throughout the many months of my case. He always kept me informed about what was going on and I loved his quick responses to my questions and concerns. I never felt like I was being ignored. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Recently Divorced
I recently hired Steve to handle my divorce. He is a very pleasant, knowledgable and professional person. The support staff in his office are equally impressive. I would definitely recommend him.

Ethical
He made me nervous at times until I realized he was a genius. He's not a shark but does have a high moral standard and he used that standard to take the higher road in court, which worked to our benefit.

Attorney review
Steve handled my case thoroughly well. My case was handled at mediation and mainly filework was done for mine but he always answered all my questions and concerns. He gave me all details needed if my case continued and kept my options at my best interest.

Divorce
I was in need of a lawyer for my divorce. I don't know any lawyers, so I went to Hope Law Firm to get a feel for them after hearing an add for them on the radio. It turned out that hiring them was probably one of my best decisions. They worked with me every step of the way. They were understanding when I was going through some financial issues, and didn't threaten to discontinue services based on lack of payment. All in all, I was very happy about the services that I received. I ended up getting nearly everything that I wanted out of the divorce and all of my questions got answered in a timely manner.

Great Divorce Lawyer
Steve represented me in my divorce case that ended up going all the way to trial. Steve helped me get custody of my daughter and child support started. He did a good job communicating with me throughout the entire case. He was also very fair and flexible with his billing which I was beyond greatful for. I would definitely recommend Steve and the Hope Law Firm to represent anyone in a divorce!

Family Law Case
I hired Steve for a problem my grandson was having with his ex-wife. She tried to stop his visitation of their 3 year old son by making false accusations. Steve was right on top of everything, answered our emails promptly, and my grandson got all his visitation back quickly and even received make up visitation time. Our family couldn't be happier. If/when we have another problem we will call Steve.
