Great lawyer!
We used Steven for our estate planning. He was easy to work with and explained everything in a way we could understand it. Everything was taken care of for us. Would definitely recommend.

Outstanding Estate Attorney – Highest Recommendation
Mr. Steven Earl represented me in a lengthy, contested estate case. The advice and counsel I received from him were superlative in every respect. His knowledge of civil procedure and state law worked very much in my favor when it came to dealing with the Court and the opposing attorneys. Because of Mr. Earl’s competence and expertise, I always felt as though my interests held the upper hand. In the end, the case was settled very much in my favor. The case was extremely stressful for me on a personal level. Mr. Earl’s responsiveness to my questions and concerns was always prompt, professional and, most of all, reassuring. I always felt as though he was there for me. His calm, confident and proficient advocacy reflect great credit on himself personally and, in my opinion, set the standard for his profession. Mr. Steven Earl has my highest recommendation.

Will and Probate
My mother got very sick and needed a will. His office quickly put together a basic will for us and when she couldn't physically get out of the car to come up to their office and sign it, they came down to the car to witness and sign with her! A week later she passed away and quickly they helped my brother and I go to court and get her will probated so we could get her estate settled and everything went very smooth and quick and was so very painless at a very painful time in our lives. I can't even begin to thank their office for all their help! I would reccomend them to anyone who needs estate planning or guidance!

Very knowledgeable.
Was being falsely sued by credit card company. Had gone to 3 other attorneys who didn't know how to get the problem resolved. Attorney Steven Earl solved my problem with one cause of action. So very grateful for his representation.
