Review for Attorney Jeremiah Stephan
Jeremiah handled my Legal Separation Case very amicably. I find in him a very caring, responsive and knowledgeable young and upcoming Attorney. He ensures that he has understood the issues involved and has communicated to the client what is the likely outcome based on the Legal Statues involved. He also ensures that Client is treated fairly with respect to the Costs and Fees and is always willing to work out a financial arrangement to help the Client if needed.

"I couldn't possibly type enough to cover everything that's great about about Mr. Stephan's lawyering. Intense, comprehensive, and compassionate representation is everything you should expect from him. He has represented lawyers for their own personal legal matters, and if lawyers hire him, well then I can't think of a higher indicator of top-notch representation. I would very much recommend him for just about any divorce matter, custody, and for support related issues. Incredible lawyer and genuine human being. You'll have shorted yourself, if you don't meet with him, prior to hiring another lawyer. Worth your time and effort."
