Excellent Attorney
Mr. Buitron was a fantastic lawyer. I hired Mr. Buitron to represent me in my divorce and he was very compassionate, caring and patient. The divorce process took a lot longer than what we had thought, but Mr. Buitron stuck with me and continued to fight for what I was wanting in the divorce for my daughter and I. I’d highly recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer and advocate for a stressful divorce.

Excellent follow through
Steve handled my probate hearing in a professional and timely manner. Everything went smoothly and successfully. Mr. Buitron also handled an issue well after the hearing that helped me finalize an important issue in regards to selling my inherited home. Highly recommended.

Up front, honest and dedicated
After consulting with a few other attorneys my hopes of being able to ever get a fair or decent outcome of my case was all but diminished. Steve contacted me within a few hours after submitting an email to him. He consulted with me while I struggled to figure out what I was going to do - eventually hiring him to represent me. Steve is very responsive- responding to all of my emails and phone calls- he is also up front and realistic about the outcomes of the case, he doesn't sugar coat things. Even though Steve had moved part way through my case- he was still just as available to handle my questions and concerns. The attorney he recommended to go with me during the last part of my case was just as reassuring and kind as Steve. While I hope to never need Steve's services ever again- I would certainly recommend his services to anyone that is looking for an up front, honest and truly dedicate attorney!

Best lawyer in town!
I hired Mr. Buitron when I needed a family lawyer. I had an urgent and difficult case. Mr. Buitron handled it with the greatest of ease! He was courteous, timely, and effective. His office environment was welcoming and I never felt rushed during our meetings! Worth every penny!

Wonderful and Dedicated Defense Attorney!
Steve C. Buitron had helped consult me during hard times, in which I was dealing with multiple appeals on my unemployment case. Each time the company tried to appeal and terminate my benefits, Steve was always there to consult and help me with the unemployment process. He was very dedicated, thorough, and if it was't for his efforts, I would have never won my case. Even though he was busy, Steve always took the time out (even his own personal time) to help me with my case. I was very lucky to have his advise and help, in which his relentless determination helped me win my case. I highly recommend his services, and can't thank him enough for going the extra mile in helping me win my case!

Steve was our miracle worker
We consulted with a couple other attorneys that painted a rosy picture while having their hand out for money we just didn't have. Our son's whole family relied on the outcome of my grandson's case. He was no angel but he wasn't the monster he was being accused of. Steve was able to prove that and he did so at a modest expense and a lot of work. He made financial arrangements we could afford and he (and his staff) worked their butts off. The results were far better than we could ever hope for. My grandson is graduating from high school next week and he has a full ride to a college in NY.

Mr. Buitron is a caring, professional, knowledgable, and excellent attorney that I was lucky enough to have represent me in my divorce case. Not only did he care about the case, he cared about me as a person and how I was dealing with it all. I would recommend him to anyone that is going through this difficult time!!!

Intelligent, professional, dedicated attorney
Steven has helped me with two speeding tickets as well as offering counsel regarding contracts and court appearances. He is a seasoned professional who was courteous and patient with my questions and concerns. His advice has always been spot on and he has helped me to avoid additional points on my license which would have caused a significant increase in the cost of my insurance. I would definitely recommend Mr. Buitron to anyone in need of legal services.

Excellent Legal Support
Mr. Buitron provided great legal support to our company in the area of labor law. He assisted with interactions with our Workforce Commission as well as legal dealings with a past employee. I would recommend him for anyone who needs an honest lawyer at a reasonable price.

Comfortable taking his legal advice
Steve is competent and prompt. These two qualities made the divorce legal process easier to transition. Nothing was easy in my case because of the other side but Steve made sure things got done and the matter was finally resolved. He was patient and took time to understand the issues. He gave the best legal advice and we made it through the process. He always said it was our process and didn't leave me out there alone.

Best Attorney in Syracuse
Mr. Buitron was a classy first rate attorney. He was courteous, kind , professional and affordable. I contacted Mr Buitron on a holiday weekend. He was in Dallas attending a funeral. He contacted me within a couple hours and gave me his personal cell phone number in case I needed to contact him. He immediately contacted me when he returned to Syracuse. He was the only attorney to contact me during the holiday weekend out of the many I called. In the end the final disposition was very positive. I would give him a 10 star rating and highly recommend his law firm.

Exactly what I'd hoped
After doing quite a bit of research online I found Steve Buitron's website and ultimately decided to go with him. He was friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. He explained what I was looking at and what I could expect and was right on all counts. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

HIGHLY recommended
I chose a lawyer at random, and I am SO thankfuI I ended up with Mr. Buitron. From the first time I called his office to the meetings with him to my court date, I always felt supported and cared for by him and his amazing staff. This is probably rare with lawyers, but I honestly felt like he was 100% on my side, and I never worried about the outcome of my case.
