I offer a FREE initial telephonic consultation. Also, sometimes in divorce/custody cases, a private investigator becomes necessary to locate hidden assets and other related assignments. I can offer my clients this service since I am also a California licensed private investigator.

You won't regret hiring him
I found Mr. Stearman to be knowledgeable, thorough, reasonable, accessible, fast-moving, and effective in a complicated civil lawsuit that I brought to him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants that kind of atypical legal representation!

Professional and to-the-point
I am very glad to have found Jeff to handle my case. He works tirelessly around the clock and answers emails even during weekends.

Skillful well-equipped all-around
It was a word of mouth that introduced me to the “easy to work with” Mr Stearman. I always looked forward to meeting or calling him and even long after our engagement letter expired he never hesitated to respond to my calls or emails quickly and efficiently. I had a smooth process that I can say with certainty if I had to do over agin without a doubt he would be my go to. I consider myself blessed to have a great ally on my side and a true friend!

Excellent legal service
I have hired and consulted with Jeff several times. I found him to be professional, knowledgeable, and personable. He has also taken the time to refer me to competent attorneys for issues he did not have expertise in. I have previously recommended Jeff and have received outstanding feedback.

Quiet Confidence
I hired Mr. Stearman after our initial consultation for assistance with a visitation disruption that had lasted 3 years. During said consultation, he asked me several questions, some of which he would ask a second time, worded differently. The manner in which he did this felt a lot like he was already preparing me for the possibility of having to testify in court, and it was apparent that he is quite skilled at extracting truth from individuals. He stays on top of your case and maintains consistent contact with you. Very well prepared. Highly recommended.

Great Attorney
Mr. Stearman assisted me in what I thought was a hopeless situation. Once I explained my situation to him, he took complete control; knew exactly what to do; and achieved the results I so badly needed. He was very professional and always reachable either by phone or email and always promptly returned my calls. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends or family. Even my realtor, who was involved in my situation, said he was very impressed with Mr. Stearman, after dealing with many attorneys in the past. I also found his rates to be very reasonable and competitive, especially after searching around for other attorneys first. Thank you so much Mr. Stearman

Mr. Stearman is an exceptionally attentive attorney. Diligent, very reachable, and unlike most lawyers in this field he is not pushy. He listens to the client and executes solid. I highly recommend this attorney for family law needs.
