Steve Bishop has tremendously helped me and was always so patient with me. I’m a return customer ( the first time was for a post nuptial agreement to the same man I would end up divorcing ). And both times, his wisdom and expertise have saved me heartache and drama. He’s brutally honest …. and I can understand that some people may not appreciate that …. but he ALWAYS has his clients best interest at heart. He fought for me and most importantly … he fought for my children. He knows the law. He’s worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY! Thank you
It’s good to know there is an attorney that is not money motivated. Steven is a wonderful attorney. He is patient and understanding. What’s best about him is that he won’t take your money before advising you of the probable outcome. He saved me thousands. I would highly recommend him.
Mr. Bishop was amazing with my case. I was able to get everything that was best for my child, and he stood up for her when it mattered most. We had a judge that was substituting and wasn’t fully aware of our situation and he was quick to fix the problem and lower my stress. He was very professional with me and was quick to answer all my questions no matter the time of day. I have had him for over a year and will continue to keep him as my lawyer.
