Steve Zipper has done stellar work for me and my family - and gone above and beyond.
When we first met and started talking (recently married, kid on the way), Steve asked if we had our family affairs in order. He was truly concerned that we have the best plan in place, helping us set up wills, trusts, medical directives and power of attorney, and helping us find sound financial advice as well. He was incredibly thorough, and personal in a way that we didn't feel like we were getting plugged into a template.
Since then Steve has helped me with setting up a business, projecting and preparing for some potential legal difficulties, and more.
What sets him apart is that he absolutely thrives on finding the approach, technique or tool that is the perfect fit for you. I've gotten to know Steve well, and I can attest that he really loves what he does, and nothing is better for him than finding a unique solution that few if any others could have come up with.
The things you want in a lawyer are all there - attention to detail, thorough knowledge of the law, professionalism - but it's what's beyond that that makes him stand out: compassion, genuine interest, unquestionable integrity and an altruistic desire to use the law to help people.
It gives me a very high level of comfort to know I have Steve in my corner.

Steve has helped my family with all of our estate planning and business needs for over ten years. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone that needs a well drafted and thoughtful estate plan. As with most business owners, my estate plan had to take into consideration the various complexities of our business entities. He was able to take complex issues and simplify them so that my Wife and I could understand and make good decisions.
Steve and his team were always very accessible. Accessibility was very helpful given our busy lives. Our estate planning didn't drag on like I've heard from others.
I think if you are someone that cares about protecting your family in the event of a death or disability, you should use Steve.

I trust Steve Zipper for the most complex estate planning issues that arise in my commercial litigation cases. He is pragmatic, calm and knowledgeable. I have a number of clients that I have referred to Steve that have reported how pleased they are with him. He is the person I would hire for my own estate planning needs.
