Bankruptcy Preferential Payment Resolution
Steve was very helpful in assisting with our case. He was able to negotiate a settlement that we were comfortable with. Having to hire a lawyer out of State, we feel very fortunate to have had him involved with our case.

Very informative, compassionate and fair.
I went to see Steven regarding possible bankruptcy. I had already met with several other attorneys who showed no compassion and left me more confused after I left. Steven spent about an hour with me and educated me on all my options. He made the process easy to understand and even discouraged me from filing. Additionally, I brought a cd with all my financial records on them. I assumed there were only a few sheets and asked his assistant to print them. Turns out, there were a couple hundred pages. His assistant printed and organized them without question. Steven did not request payment for the document printing but I did pay him anyway. I highly recommend Mr. Sather to anyone exploring bankruptcy. You will not be disappointed.
