Review Steven Bishop
  • Child custody & support

    Mr. Bishop was amazing with my case. I was able to get everything that was best for my child, and he stood up for her when it mattered most. We had a judge that was substituting and wasn't fully aware of our situation and he was quick to fix the problem and lower my stress. He was very professional with me and was quick to answer all my questions no matter the time of day. I have had him for over a year and will continue to keep him as my lawyer.

  • Fantastic Lawyer, Steven Bishop

    Mr. Bishop was referred to me by a very well respected colleague several years ago and I have since been fortunate (or unfortunate, depending upon your viewpoint, it is divorce after all) to retain Mr. Bishop to represent me in 2 divorces.

    Though prepared and willing to get "tough" I wanted a amiable, direct, and quick process with a minimum of drama. He was perfect! Always available to address concerns and willing to provide clear and educated counsel when needed. My ex-husband's were even a bit envious of the service I received as they didn't feel similarly represented. Adding to the positive experience was his staff. Personable and experienced. A winning combination.

    I have recommended Steve and his office to many friends and will continue to seek his counsel should it be needed in the future.

  • Steven Bishop is the BEST

    Steve is awesome. He secured an incredibly favorable outcome for us, but beyond that he was just incredible to have on our side through a tough and sometimes very rough process. Steven is super competent, has great instincts and his experience allows him to not be surprised by anything that happens in Court. We had an unfavorable judge who seemed intent on ruling against us, but Steve was relentless and got an outcome that was more than we had hoped for. Thank you Steve not only for your skills but for your passion and compassion with people.

    I first met Steve Bishop in 1997 when I was in need of a guardianship Attorney. He made the process easy and stress free. Steve explained every aspect of the case as we went along. He made sure there were no surprises. Both he and his staff are wonderful.

    I was so impressed with Mr. Bishop that I hired him to represent me during my Divorce in 2000. As many of you know, divorces can be an emotional rollercoaster and mine was just that. Steve was there to assist me, direct me and even scold me when I was out of line. I needed an attorney who was willing to tell me when I was letting emotions control my better judgments.

    Years went by when I was again in need of an attorney. In 2010, Steve handled an adoption case for me. Again, Steve did everything to keep me informed of all actions before they occurred.

    And currently, I have Mr. Bishop preparing a Trust for my Mother. I wouldn’t allow anybody else to handle her affairs.

    I have recommended Steve Bishop to friends, family members and colleagues without any hesitations.

    When I need an Attorney, I already know who I will be calling.

  • Truly Awesome Attorney

    Mr. Bishop came into my life in the most difficult time imaginable. He provided me with fantastic advice, was by my side through the entire divorce process and I could not imagine surviving the process without his excellent assistance. He really knows his stuff, and was amazing in the Court room. His knowledge and experience helped me reach a settlement with my very difficult ex-husband without having to go to trial. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an aggressive, knowledgeable Family Law Lawyer. In addition, his staff was responsive and attentive to my every need and I never felt like I was bothering them when i had questions or needed someone to just hold my hand or listen to me vent. They were the cherry on the top.

    Mr. Bishop was just what I needed. He took the time to explain everything to me so I wasn’t anxious about the process. His fees were reasonable. He even went out of his way to keep me informed when I wasn’t home to receive his calls. He was aggressive in court when needed and really made me feel secure in the counsel I obtained. I would recommend him to others in need of a competent attorney who cares about their case. Thanks Mr. Bishop.

    Mr. Bishop is not trustworthy as he painted a wonderful picture of representing me before the judge but when it actually came to that day, he demonstrated himself to either be incompetent or to purposely lose my case (the comments he made seemed like he didn't really believe in my case). I feel I was also "taken" by him as he spent time and my money "preparing" and obtaining personal information from me but never challenged the judge or my ex. He was also inappropriate in ways I don't wish to discuss here. Thank you.

  • Poor Performance

    1.0 star

    Posted by a Divorce client

    I fired this attorney from representing me for the following reasons: his multiple continuances concerning my case when they weren't needed, his confusing billing system, his unprofessional manner as well as his overall poor knowledge of client rights.

    He is not a California State Board CFLS and it shows.

    Mr. Bishop was attentive to my specific needs, concerns, and challenges in my particular case, and was candid about what I could expect. He was able to accurately assess not only the outcome, but the costs required to see the case through to the end. I was pleased to see his swift action when needed to combat what seemed to be some underhanded dealings by the opposing counsel, and I felt assured that he always had my best interests in mind. I received copies of every document and letter that was filed within two days of its being submitted, and was notified by phone immediately if something required my urgent attention. Mr. Bishop was able to predict nearly every ruling that the judge entered, which gave me further assurance of his knowledge and experience of how the court system works. Mr. Bishop is both friendly and professional, and takes a genuine interest in his clients.
