Revised Legal Documents
Stephanie Hon and her legal aide, Rhejeanne Bermudez, were a pleasure to work with. They were friendly and professional. We had legal documents updated and were pleased with the time and attention Stephanie provided for our needs. I am pleased to recommend her for legal advice and assistance.

Best experience for worst case planning!
My husband and I worked with Stephanie and RJ to complete our legal documents. Ours was a bit complicated due to this being a second marriage and kiddos from other spouses. Stephanie took her time and explained all of our options and made sure that we understood everything. Every question that was emailed was answered promptly and thoroughly. RJ was super helpful and amazing to work with as well. As much as this was a weight lifted off of our shoulders, I'm a bit sad that we won't be seeing Stephanie and RJ. They feel like friends more than lawyers and legal assistants!

Your Family Lawyer for Life!
Stephanie's approach to family law is holistic, and she considers the personal aspects with just as much weight as the legal components. She has natural kindness and empathy that allows her to guide her clients through a difficult and confusing legal process with grace and clarity. Her expertise is unparalleled, and she delivered all the plans and documents in a timely and complete fashion.

Best Estate Planner
Stephanie worked thoroughly to blend an out of state will and trust with our needs to have it converted to our new home state. She was patient, compassionate, thorough, and understanding!

Very professional
We hired Stephanie to help with our estate planning. She explained the differences between wills and trusts, and helped us to find the right fit. She makes the process so easy that at first you may feel overwhelmed with all the little pieces but in the end you see how well she has everything organized so it all fits together. We feel that our assets are protected for our family.

Best. Estate. Planning. Ever
We were referred to Stephanie by a colleague for estate planning. I imagined it being a preset of documents that we had to just input our names in and just sign. I was completely wrong! During our first meeting, Stephanie took the time to learn what was important to our family and catered our estate planning to us. Stephanie and her team took the time to explain the process which made completing our end easy. And when we did have questions, Stephanie was quick to respond. Stephanie is very personable and easy going, the process seemed more like working with a friend/family member than just another attorney. 10/10 recommend!

Enjoyable experience with a fantastic lawyer!
My wife and I just finished estate planning with Stephanie and we couldn’t recommend a better person for the Job! When we started off the process we came with a huge list of questions to which Stephanie showed her incredible knowledge by thoroughly answering every item we had. Stephanie not only covered our entire list, but even pointed out so many more possibilities that we never thought of. On top of everything else she was also very professional and personable, making the hole process as smooth as possible.

She's Top of the Line!
The wife and I decided we needed to update and/or complete documents such as our Wills, Living Wills, Power of Attorney for Medical and other, well, let me just say everything to do with one’s estate living or deceased. The wife did a bit of research and said we should use Stephanie Hon. A long time ago I decided whoever I would use for whatever they would have to be ranked along with the best at what they do. So, I decided to do a bit of investigation. I checked into her law school, her education, her work history, and for any problems associated with her career. Her college and education were superb, she had a stellar work history, and there were no problems. Stephanie Hon made it so easy for us. We met and accomplished our goals online, never having to leave our home. Along the way, we were advised of things we had never thought of, and she took care of those things to protect us and made sure our wishes would be followed. Some people think that estate planning is simple to do. Let me tell you, it is not. There are many things that could throw a wrench into your plans should you use an attorney that is not up to date or as thorough as Stephanie Hon. We went to her office for the signing, and she had two witnesses there for us. We did not have to seek out our own. Stephanie Hon made it easy for us. If you want your life to be a bit simpler so you have time to enjoy it, pick someone who can do that for you. That person is Stephanie Hon.

Not your average family law attorney
Stephanie has been my counsel throughout a five year...yes, a five year divorce process. She has always maintained clarity through what has been difficult circumstances. Her calm demeanor and realistic advice was exactly what I needed at times when I wanted to pull my hair out. Her professionalism and attention to detail are beyond what I have experienced with other attorneys, she is in a league all her own. Even though being an attorney is Mrs. Hon's occupation, she has always made me feel like a friend. Her genuine concern for my children and myself was evident throughout the five years she represented me. I would strongly recommend Mrs. Hon to anyone seeking an honest & skilled litigator who is capable of understanding the complex emotions of a client and the complexities of a court room.

If you want an attorney who takes a vested interest in your case, then you need Stephanie!
I worked with Stephanie for appproximately 3-1/2 years on my divorce case which was very complicated to say the least. The type of case where most attorney's would want to run for the hills; lucky for me Stephanie didn't. There is no way to really describe how unbelievably mind-boggling this case was without writing a novel, but let me just say the financials were so intricately detailed that most attorney's would have gone crazy. Yet Stephanie somehow was able to take 10+ years of financial documentation and make sense out of it all. She truly is amazing with numbers. Stephanie is someone you can rely on, trust, will not leave you when times get tough (believe me I put her to the test many times), always has your back, and most importantly...she rocks in court! I would certainly recommend Stephanie if you are looking for a great divorce attorney!

An Excellent, level headed attorney - Highly recommended
I have had the good fortune of hiring Ms. Hon as my representative during my divorce a couple of years ago, and have since retained her services for additional family legal matters. She is approachable, yet maintains a professional and calm manner during our in office meetings and is confident, assertive and quick on her feet in the courtroom. She has not hesitatated offering me a "reality check" when I have unreasonable expecations; for that I appreciate her frank honesty. The multiple times we went to court, I left feeling that we accomplished our goals. I regard Ms. Hon as an excellent Family Law attorney; she has represented me with competence and fairness and I would recommend her services to my friends and family.

Understanding and responsive
When I first met with Ms. Hon she was understanding and listened to my concerns. My former counsel had missed some deadlines and did not listen to what I needed, Ms. Hon had a great working relationship with opposing counsel and was able to resolve the issues, and get me an outcome that was fair and reasonable.

Horrible council
I hired Stephanie for divorce proceedings. She talked a decent game initially, showed concern and empathy - text book lawyer stuff. When it came time to sign the retainer contract there was tons of hidden fees and causes. Desperate for help, I went against my better judgement and hired her, but only after she edited some of the absurd clauses in our agreement. She was not punctual on more than a few occasions for court and would send her paralegal sometimes in her place to calm the storm. In my opinion she really takes advantage of her lone assistant who does her best but is not exactly competent. When things begun to go south with this attorney and I, it seemed only appropriate that Stephanie sent me a bill with $50 email charges. Thats $50 per email! Her work and knowledge is below mediocre when it comes to the areas of family law. She cuts corners religiously and comes across more as a used car salesmen than a family attorney that happens to be a women. I recomend anyone interested in seeking her council to do your research in detail when it comes to any work done through this attorney. You have indeed been warned in advance!

Response from Stephanie Hon September 14, 2017
I know who this reviewer is and I am not surprised by his comments. Despite me going above and beyond and getting him an incredibly favorable settlement, nothing was ever good enough for him. A client that doesn't take responsibility for his own life and case doesn't make the case easy. I am sorry to say that this was the case with this client and this is not the norm for my clients and cases. I am sorry he feels this way, I wish him the best in his future endeavors despite his negative feelings towards me.
