You can stop searching right now :)
I can't express enough how much I appreciate having found Steve to help me through a very complex and difficult probate. My grandfather passed away without a will or trust and a lot of assets and children that completely dislike each other - it's been messy to say the least. I've worked in the legal profession for over 20 years and was referred to Steve Grant by an attorney I work with, as I personally didn't know anyone who specialized in Probate Law. One thing about probate law is that the court mandates or sets the attorney's fees based off of the value of the estate. The fee is also paid from / out of the estate... so you don't pay by the hour, so if you're reading this - you're probably searching for a good probate lawyer and wondering if you can afford a really good attorney, and in a probate situation, it's really up to you, the individual (aka the administrator of the estate) to find the best possible attorney (for the set fee that the estate will pay anyways). Someone that will give you their time, attention and expertise...someone who cares... Well, I'm thankful to have found Steve and that's why I'm even taking the time to write this... In writing this review, I thought it might be helpful to list out the words that come to mind to describe Steve and what kind of a person/probate attorney he is to have on your side. Steve is: Very patient Articulate Great at making himself available when you need to speak with or email him Intelligent - Probate law is very specialized and he really knows what he's doing and cares! Good Communicator - great at keeping me informed, organized and on the ball with due dates Works well with others - handles even the most difficult people very well (again, patience is a virtue) Handles complex matters very well Always pleasant and professional Logical and practical Always looking out for his client's best interest Excellent with follow through I'm sure there are many more qualities to add to this list, but if you're looking for a great probate lawyer, I believe this will really help break things down for you. It would have helped me a lot!!!

Excellent Probate Lawyer
Being out of state, I was concerned about hiring someone I had not yet met to handle my deceased family member's estate. Stephen E. Grant has exceeded my expectations and made this difficult process as easy and smooth as possible. He is a true professional; very easy to work with, easy to get in contact with, and has your best interest in mind. He walked me through every step of the process and maintained excellent contact, answering all questions I had. He offered great recommendations as well, especially Flans & Weiner Real Estate Auctioneers, and instilled confidence that everything was being taken care of even in my absence. I highly recommend Stephen Grant, especially to those in out of state situations like myself. He will not disappoint.

Wonderful Experience - Highly Recommended
Stephan really helped us through a very difficult period in our lives. I have a lot of experience with attornies and I can say that it was a pleasure dealing with him. He was very knowledgable and easy to get a hold of.

Fantastic Service
Stephen is terrific. He came highly recommended by an attorney friend and did not disappoint. He's friendly, professional and, most importantly, did a great job wrapping up a complicated estate. Why use an expensive law firm with impersonal service when Stephen will do a better job much faster and at a more reasonable rate? I can't recommend him highly enough.

Excellence in Estate Planning
I came to Steve Grant for legal advice and found him to be one of the most competent and capable attorneys I have worked with. He was attentive and made me feel instantly comfortable. Steve always had my best interest in mind. He is a true professional, going beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend him.

Drafted and Helped Execute Our Trust
Stephen drafted our trust and helped us to execute it since he's a notary as well. He was responsive and thorough and more reasonably priced than other lawyers we called. Ultimately, he was easy to work with and gave us good advice. Definitely would recommend him for estate planning.
