About me

I was admitted to practice before all California courts in 1976, Federal Court in 1977 and the United States Supreme Court in 1990.  I graduated from Western State University, College of Law in 1976 with a BSL and JD in the top 8% of my class.


I enjoy family history and have traced some lines back to 165 BC.  I married my wife Annette in 1962 and have 4 children and 10 grandchildren.

  • Francis John Gist III

    I heartily endorse Mr. Steingraber. I have read many of his answers to various questions of debtors who were seeking advice about bankruptcy matters that ran from the simple to the very complex. Not only was he very quick to respond, his answers were clear and concise. Whenever an attorney manages to communicate in such a fashion, he puts serious thought into his answers and then condenses the answer to make it understandable. My observation of his answers to questions was more than reinforced by the comments his clients have left on Avvo. This is clearly a superior and thoughtful counselor at law. His clients will have the distinct advantage of knowing they are in capable and compassionate hands.
