Great Lawyer!
Steve Tumbush has represented my business and family interests for nearly 15 years. My initial interaction with Steve involved a very complex business matter in which I was in way over my head. Steve and his firm successfully extricated me from this matter; what I most remember about this first encounter, he did exactly what he promised he would do, I find this most unusual in the legal profession. Most over-promise and under-deliver; never my experience with Steve. Over the last 15 years Steve has become one of my most valued and trusted business and personal advisers. As I review the above rating scale, I think about responsiveness - 99 times out of 100, when I place a phone call to Steve he either picks up or returns my call in a short period of time. He keeps me informed and on task; if I haven't responded to an item on my to do list that is due on a project Steve and I are working on, he reaches out and keeps me on task, which I greatly appreciate. Steve is the finest lawyer I've ever worked with, I greatly appreciate his knowledge, access and professionalism!

Excellent business attorney
Steve has been my family’s business attorney for over 10 years. In the past 5 years, our company has grown rapidly, and Steve is always available to advise and guide us in the proper direction. He takes the time to understand our unique business, and his advice is always well-informed and presented in language that our company officers can understand. Steve is a great listener and has an excellent ability to understand, clarify and problem-solve the many issues we’ve presented to him. He’s forthright, honest and protects the best interests of our business. He is a trusted advisor whom I highly recommend.
