I had 1 credit card with over $20,000.00 in fraudulent purchases. I spent many months explaining to the credit card company that this was not my debt, and was not able to pay the bill. I constantly got the runaround. Within a few months the credit card company filed a lawsuit against me. I was so worried I was going to lose my home, or they were going to take what little savings I had.
I was referred to Mr. D’Braunstein by a friend. He was very helpful, and during the initial consultation he called the credit card company; immediately taking action. Within 2 months the civil case against me was dismissed and I was able to move forward with my claim of fraud.
Without Steve’s help, I am sure I would be paying for the debt, interest that was accrued, and all legal fees that were involved. I highly recommend Steve to anyone that needs legal help.

Steve D' Braunstein is a good listener who has excellent communication skills and used them effectively to advise me throughout the process. He was quick to reply to my questions and calls. I was very lucky to have found him. I have referred many friends to him and will continue to do so. Thankyou Mr. D'Braunstein!

I hired Steve as a divorce lawyer. To make a very long story short, he is awful. I lost my home, my retirement and have 50% custody of my children because Steve forgot to mention that my ex had been arrested numerous times. The state bar agreed with me, and on the day of the arbitration hearing, the lawyers that were associated with him apologized to me for their affiliation with Steve. I was awarded 32.5K. Steve keeps running from his debt. When I read that he has others lawyers endorsing him, I am shocked! If they endorse Steve-stay away from them as well! This man owes me 32.5K for over 6 years!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Steve is a very dedicated, hard-working and tenacious lawyer, yet civility never escapes him. He knows that in the courtroom the adversarial process identifies a "prevailing party", but outside the courtroom skilled counsel can make certain there are no "winners" or "losers". Especially in family law, where preservation of a co-parenting relationship can benefit minor children for years to come, that attitude should be the rule, not the exception.
