About Stephen

Learn Stephen’s areas of practice.

With 20 trials underneath my belt, I can confidently say that I am an effective and dynamic litigator. I have successfully litigated matters from the smallest child custody matters to dividing businesses and assets worth millions of dollars.  You will find me to be a thoughtful litigator, who is aggressive when necessary. I will work with you to develop a case plan to either settle matters in the early stages or to aggressively litigate the matter to trial in the most effective manner possible. I strongly believe that a case is won through proactive planning and executing this plan with precision. 

My goal in any case is to make sure you are comfortabe and that your voice is heard. I strive to provide excellent communication with my clients, to timely respond to their inquiries, and to do my best to ensure this complex process is understandable. While the divorce process can be heartwrenching, I know that a successful attorney will help you through both the highs and lows of the litigation process.

Fantastic, Responsive Representation
I retained Stephen Oliver to handle my divorce case. He was were very responsive and on top of my case from the beginning to the end. Helistened to my concerns and negotiated a favorable settlement. I would highly recommend Mr. Oliver for anyone that may be dealing with divorce or other family law matters.

The best you can get!
Stephen represented me in my divorce that took over a year and a half to complete. He is fair, honest, and out going. Many times I had just given up and was advised of a new and even better angle to win my case. I am now happily divorced and have have joint custody with son. Stephen answered every question I ever had and was always positive and one step ahead of the adverse party. "You CANNOT go wrong with Stephen Oliver as your counsel." Even now after my case has been won. I still have gotten minor advise on questions that pop up even after the divorce has finalized. Stephen Cares.

Custody and child support modification
Stephen was extremely helpful, respectful, and knowledgeable in dealing with my case. He was able to get me a fair agreement that worked for everybody involved. He was always available and able to fully answer any questions I had. I highly recommend Stephen if your want an attorney who will fight for you and do his best to get you what you want. The Ford&Friedman firm from as a whole was very helpful for me.

Helped me through a very trying time.
Stephen Oliver was referred to me by a friend. I was going through the pain of the ending of a 39 year marriage. I felt like I was in a fog. Instantly upon a consultation with Stephen, I felt relief that I suddenly had someone on my side. Stephen truly cares. He returned texts and calls promptly, even on a weekend that something suddenly came up. The valley is loaded with attorneys, but through seemingly divine intervention, Stephen was the first and only one that I contacted, and I have nothing but thanks and praise for him.
