One of the BEST human being I have ever knon
This man is one of the finest human beings that I have ever known. My own divorce was complex and Steven worked hard to bring a proper resolution that protected my interests.

selfless and caring attorney
Steve and his son are great attorneys. Money isn't a factor when it comes to him helping people get justice. He is one of the few attorneys who don't just do his job for the money. Use Steve minor or his son Steve II if you want some one to steer you straight.

Grateful for Steven Miner!
Steven is a gifted attorney - competent, detailed and thorough. In a profession where moral character can come into question, Steven is an honest attorney seeking justice and a fair outcome. He often stands behind the 'under dog,' those with limited finances, which because of that, have not had fair representation or outcomes with the legal system. Our case is one of those. Steven is helping my husband and I 'level the playing field' with regard to child support and associated expenses. To gain justice in the midst of lies, misrepresentation, and badgering on the other side. We are grateful for his character, his experience and his expertise, all of which are helping us meet only our legal obligations and move forward.

Great Referal from the community
I am a fellow Barrington resident and many from the community had said to use Steven because not only of convience but due to his attentiveness. I am not very knowledgeable about the law other than the basics and he was able to guide me through my divorce with ease. I had many questions along the way that many other lawyers would have said were silly but Steven did not. Due to my work schedule, I do not work a typical 9 to 5 Monday thru Friday. Whenever I had questions I emailed or called Steven day or night. He returns emails within 24 hours at the latest and always returns phone calls as soon as he can. Another nice thing was that no matter how many times I called him or emailed him I was never charged. I had gone to get a quote from another attorney downtown and right away there was a fee for phone calls and minute break downs for fees. I really appreciated that he does not charge for this service and makes himself availbe 24/7 unlike other attorneys. Also, since his office is based out of his home I felt more at ease about my situation from how comfortable he made me feel and meeting him was more convient than having to go downtown where other friends of mine had recommended me going. He is also a one man show. He returns, answers, and types all of his cases. Since there is no middle man, he really knows the case and gets to know exactly what you want out of your situation. In my case I was able to stay in my house and have my kids during the week as I wanted. He really understood what I wanted and how important my children are to me. His knowledge of the law goes far beyond family law. He was also able to help me with a few driving tickets and issues that my kids had with the law too from curfew violations.I thought that getting a divorce would have been hell but with his help I was more at ease and left having less horror stories than many of my girlfriends. He redefines the sterotype of what it is to be a lawyer. He shows that lawyers are human too and for those that take the time and care like he does about each case, having to hire a lawyer is not bad. Like many I thought the worst thing I would ever have to do was hire an attorney but Steve made everything so simple I could not have been happier with how things went.

Go see Steven!
I went to see Steven because a friend told me to and right from the get go I was really impressed. I had been to other lawyers in the past and did not feel like they cared. I had been shuffled from one young lawyer to another with these big firms and I never felt like anyone ever knew what was going on with my case. Steven was the complete opposite. The moment we sat down and I explained my situation to him, he immediately began advising me of potential things that could be done to try and correct my situation. He makes you feel better and for me that was really important because with my previous lawyer I did not feel that way at all. In noticing the other comment about Steven's phone call policy, I can confirm that. I often called him at very late or early times of the day and he never missed a call. He always made time for me and even when he was busy, I always received a prompt call back . I cannot say enough good things about him and and there is no question that he will remain the only lawyer that I ever go to.

He sticks with you
I have worked with Steven in both the past and the present as my problems unfortunately continue to follow me. During both my divorce and the many never ending court appearances long after my divorce due to my ex, it has been a continual battle but one that I am happy to fight knowing that Steven is there to help. My divorce was a nightmare to say the least but there was not a single day during the entire ordeal that Steven was not a phone call away. When he told me in our first meeting that he would go out of his way to make himself available when I called, he was not joking. Often times I would have concerns beyond the normal 9-5 'business hours' that most people work and Steven always made time for those calls, even the ones where I could tell that I had interupted something that he was doing. That kind of respect and general concern that he provided made me feel that I was not alone. I have not heard of any lawyers that are so willing to be there for their clients. He truly cares about his clients and makes them feel as though they are his only client, even though I am sure that there are/were more than just me. Knowing that he is and has been in my corner has made life that much easier.
