Practice areas

Steven’s practice focuses on family law and the crossover issues presented between family law and his other areas of expertise. Now in his third decade of practice, Steven’s legal experience includes family law, civil litigation, trusts and estates, conservatorships and guardianships, bankruptcy, real estate, and alternative dispute resolution. The overwhelming majority of his cases, however, involve child custody and visitation, support, property and debt division in divorce, and post-judgment litigation of these issues.

A native of New York City, Steven earned his undergraduate degree from Brooklyn College and his law degree from the University of Miami. He is admitted to practice in California and before various federal courts in California and Florida.

In 2001, Steven obtained a post-graduate Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree from the University of San Diego, focusing on the law of taxation. This course of study focuses on tax planning, analysis, and litigation, and has proven invaluable to his family law clients and as a resource to other attorneys at Cage and Miles.

Steven is an active member of the San Diego County Bar Association’s family law section and the San Diego Family Law Bar Association. An endurance road cyclist, mountain biker, and motorcyclist, Steven spends most weekends on two wheels enjoying San Diego’s roads and trails, often cycling with the Challenged Athletes Foundation Cycling Club - an organization that provides opportunities and support for athletes with physical challenges. When off the bikes, Steven enjoys time with his wife (a pediatric nurse), their children, and the family’s rescued Labrador/Coonhound mix, in search of a decent bagel or slice of pizza.

Highly recommend Mr. Steven Brumer!
Thank you for taking the time to read my review on Mr. Steven Brumer. I have a small Corporation and reached out to Steven for professional advice and suggestions. With Steven's expertise and his professional manner I felt very confident moving forward with his services. Steven helped with the BK paperwork process, and answered all questions of concern, and his responses were very quick via email and available via phone call upon request. San Diego has several hundred attorney's to reach out to and the BK process is very stressful. Steven and his firm uses an online software program very user friendly. I would highly recommend Steven for his services. In conclusion, our experience was great the end result was very positive. Sincerely, Howard

I was really pleased with how attorney Brumer handled my bankruptcy. I was really nervous at first to file but attorney Brumer reassured me that it was the best thing for me in my particular situation. He walked me through the whole process so I felt completely comfortable and understood what was going on the whole time. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to my family and friends in similar situations.

Does not disappoint
I am thankful to have found Steven to help me through such a difficult financial situation. He helped put me at ease through the whole process. I was set back by a simple computer processing mistake that delayed my case. I was very discouraged but Steven was on top of it and got me in and out and on with my life. I truly believe he worked hard for me and I highly recommend him!

Empathetic and Efficient
I found Steven through my work's EAP. He was flexible with the time I was able to meet and his honesty was as wonderful as his compassion for my situation. He always responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner, I highly recommend his service as an attorney.

Very informative on the phone.
I had a few questions related to a debt that I am not sure that I actually owe (I was contacted by a debt collection agency) and I called Mr. Brumer to ask him for his opinions on my situation. He was extremely kind, patient and eager to go over my situation and explain to me the potential courses of action I may need to take in the future. He made a very good impression on me. If I end up requiring legal services if this current situation escalates, I will certainly be calling Mr. Brumer back.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
The stress of bankruptcy made the whole process seem very daunting, but Steven made it such a breeze for us! His knowledge and experience was comforting and gave us a stable sense of understanding when we needed it most (without all the BS). Thank you for helping to renew our hope, realize that there was a way out, and guiding us through the whole thing. I would definitely recommend Steven and WILL refer friends and family.

Legal Warrior
Steven Brumer is an excellent attorney-- I’d even go so far as to call him a legal warrior. He smoothly and successfully handled my Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and relieved so much stress and anxiety that I had about the matter. Going through BK can be a challenging and overwhelming process, and Steven was there for me every step of the way. He provides the perfect mixture of professionalism, mastery, integrity, sincerity, and compassion. Steven is unstoppable. If I had to go through the process again, I would choose Steven a million times over. I highly recommend Steven Brumer to anyone who needs bankruptcy or family law legal assistance. Thank you Steven!

LOOK NO FURTHER!!!
Facing being laid off from my job for a second time, within a 3-year period, my finances were a disaster. I was financially depleted. Emotionally, this was an extremely difficult time in my life. Bankruptcy is something I never would have considered for myself. I thought that filing for bankruptcy would, indeed, bring me financial relief, but at the cost of feeling like a competent adult, who was responsible with his earnings and mature enough to handle credit. However, I had amassed great debt and was now overwhelmed, with no great resources to help my situation- until Steven Brumer invited me for a consultation. What a truly eye-opening experience. Steven, was both very astute and knowledgeable, but also showed great kindness and compassion. Steven put my mind at ease by taking the time to explain the entire bankruptcy process, step-by-step. His confidence (never arrogance) and exceptional knowledge of bankruptcy law put my mind at ease. Steven was able to answer all of my questions efficiently, and seamlessly navigated through my seemingly endless barrage of concerns. Emotionally, Steven did so much more for me. He alleviated the sense of shame and guilt that would have likely kept me in this financial purgatory for life. Steven assured me that I was not alone in my situation, nor in my feelings. Steven gave me the information, clarity, and emotional support needed to guide me to a resolution that best suited my particular circumstances; for that I am truly grateful. I would, without hesitation, recommend the services of Steven Brumer to anyone facing similar hardship and uncertainty. His guidance and support were a gift.

Steven Brumer is an attentive lawyer and a great professional.
I was referred to Steven Brumer by another very well-known Carlsbad lawyer. I am not only grateful for the referral but to Steven for doing an excellent job and demonstrating great professionalism in resolving my financial dilemma through bankruptcy. I felt calm and confident as soon as I spoke with him over the phone, and then when I met with him, his demeanor made me feel relaxed and secure. I knew everything would be fine. I highly recommend Steven to anyone who is facing financial issues

WOULD HIRE AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT!!!
Steven is a very knowledgeable attorney for certain, but he also shows understanding and compassion during some stressful/difficult times. He patiently listens to you, answers all your questions, and makes himself available to you in person, on the phone or online. You are treated with dignity.
