Client Reviews

Michael Steiner is the best lawyer I have ever used. My wife's lawyer tried to pull fast one by telling my lawyer we were going to court to set a trail date, then showed up fully prepared with a group of witnesses and demanded the trail occur that day. Michael with 30 minutes of notice had to take on an entire day long trail on the spot.

He discredited every witness she had and made her witnesses fully discredit all of her testimonies. He then had 2 days to prepare my entire restraining order. He annihilated her lawyer. He is the best cross examiner you have ever seen and his attention to detail is incredible. His closing states seal the deal.

Keep in mind getting a restraining order is an extremely difficult thing to get. He requested a one year restraining order, when he was done the judge issued a two year restraining order, allowed me to keep my dog and allowed me to be the sole occupant of my house. He is the one you are looking for. Like the one you see in the movies.

Michael Steiner helped me through both my divorce and modification of custody for my children. As a father, obtaining 50/50 custody is no easy task, especially while in the military. Unfortunately, it's takes a lot of "proving" to mediators and the court that it is in fact in the children's best interest to be with their father an equal amount of time.
Involved fathers matter too and Michael spent a great deal of time making sure my only hope became a reality. I was able to receive the outcome that was the healthiest, safest and most emotionally appropriate for my children. Thank you Michael for all you put up with and did for my family. It is people like you that truly make a difference!
