Many of you, our clients, have taken the time to write a review or testimonial to describe your experience with us. The Partners, matrimonial legal team, and support staff, at Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, thank you for your kind words and warm sentiments.
“Mr. Shumer expertly guided me through my prenuptial agreement. From our first interaction he was very thorough and thoughtful and addressed all of my concerns. Throughout the entire process he was available to address any new concerns or changes and went above and beyond in communicating with both me and my fiancé’s attorney. I would highly recommend Steve.”
“I recently used Steven Shumer, of Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, to represent me in a divorce proceeding. I was referred to him by my ex-wife who had used him last year (divorce with her most recent husband, not me). She had great things to say about him and after using him I could not agree more. Steve was thorough, exact, and understanding throughout the whole process. Many times I proposed offering my wife more than what the law required in my haste to get matters settled. Steve constantly took the time to explain to me what was required of me and to keep me from “biting my nose to spite my face”. The most important thing about working with Steve was that he met my needs by helping to reach a settlement that awarded my wife things I wanted her to have, while at the same time ensuring that I was protected from present or future litigation. A common term used by Steve was, “You hired me to protect you so let me do my job and it will all work out.” Each time he said that I felt comfortable I was in good hands. In the end he arranged a settlement for me that was even better than what I expected and, best of all, left me protected for my future. I highly recommend Steve to anyone going through a difficult situation. He is caring and professional and has the utmost expertise in his field. ”

“I recently had a situation that I needed the services of a lawyer. I contacted and retained Heath Berger. After months of negotiations with a difficult adversary the situation was resolved in my favor thanks to Heath’s skill and untiring efforts. Thank you to the professional and friendly manor of Heath and his staff he made a very difficult and upsetting situation much easier to tolerate. I highly recommend Heath Berger, Esq., without reservation.”
I want to thank Steven E. Shumer and his staff at Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP for always being there when I needed them for anything regarding my divorce. Being that it was an uphill climb involving finances and more importantly, my daughter, they fought for everything I deserved and achieved my desired goals. No matter what day it was or where we were in the divorce I had the same 100% from Steven and his staff who made the divorce process as painless as possible. I can’t thank them enough.

Dear Steven E. Shumer, Esq.,
“I would like to Thank You for the efficiency of your Law Firm. I called for services that I needed to be done in a timely manner. When I called you never hesitated to make me feel at ease that it could and would be done as I needed. Your professionalism is outstanding from the beginning to the end. Your communication was always on. Anytime I called I would get a response always in a timely fashion. I never had to wait for any answers to any questions I may have had. Your office staff was always a pleasure to deal with. They made you feel like they knew you from day one. Always courteous and friendly with professionalism.
For all of this I thank You Again. I would highly recommend you and your firm to any clients or friends who are in need of a Honest, Professional, Efficient and Caring Law Firm.”
“I have known Steven, Heath and Angie since 2006. I want to thank each of them for their help in all these years of need. I did not use them in my initial divorce (wish I had) but have used them in several post divorce cases. In each case, they have been extremely professional, compassionate and calming. Coming from someone who gets bombarded with a number of legal issues, it is quite comforting knowing they are behind me. They are very knowledgeable, honest in their assessments and guidance and not always looking to make a buck. Steven has even taken the time to respond while he has been on vacation. Since I have known them for so long, they are like family to me. They are people I trust to help handle very difficult situations.”

“I have had the good fortune and privilege of being introduced to Mr. Steven Shumer of Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP. For over a decade he and his firm have assisted me and my immediate family with a myriad of legal issues. Each and every time I sought the firm’s services, I was overwhelmed with the positive results of each situation. I have recommended Mr. Shumer and his firm to family and friends for whatever legal assistance they might require and have only received positive feedback from those I have referred. I have no qualms contacting Mr. Shumer with any of my legal problems. It is my opinion that Mr. Shumer and his firm will do everything to help out his clientele to the very best of their abilities. Most importantly, they handle themselves with professionalism, compassion and understanding.”
THEY ARE THE BEST!!
“As a real estate broker, I encounter clients who are sadly looking to end their marriage and dissolve their shared assets. I have recommended Steve to these clients numerous times. The compassion,trust and understanding my clients tell me they have received, have taken an incredibly difficult time in their lives and softened it. Steve never loses sight of what is most important…the children’s well being, both financially and most important:emotionally. Thankfully, I have not needed Steve’s services personally, but will continue to recommend him time and time again. He brings logic as well as compassion into a very emotionally charged situation.”
“I would like to thank everyone at Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP who was associated with my divorce and bankruptcy. I found Mr. Berger great in handling my bankruptcy, explaining how the process worked and being in court to help allay my fears. Angie, Steven Shumer’s assistant, was great as well. It was nice to deal with competent, caring people. Lastly, but most importantly, I would like to thank Steven Shumer. Mr. Shumer was always honest in his assessments of my situation. He proved to be highly competent and reliable and more concerned with my personal well-being as opposed to making money. Again, thank you very much.”
“To Steven, Heath and Brian, Now that my family court case is over I would like to thank you each individually for you have all helped me, each in a different way. Steven, thank you for always calming me down and taking the time to explain things to me in a way I could understand. You made me realize that there are steps to be taken to get to a goal. Slow and steady wins the race, and we WON!!! I especially want to thank you for taking the time out from your family vacation to answer my e-mails when I was having a melt-down, so thank you Steven for all you did to help me. Heath, thank you for being the first lawyer I’ve ever had in the court room. I was nervous as anything and asked a million questions and you answered them all. I know I kept asking what if this happens, what if that happens, and calmly you would answer my questions then tell me, “let’s get to that point then worry about it”. In the end “what if” never even happened so I worried for nothing. Thank you for being there for me. Brian, well you closed the deal as they say. I remember being in the hearing and being asked a million questions. I was so nervous and forgot dates and numbers, etc. You calmly put your hand on top of mine and just nodded at me, I knew from there on in it was going to be ok. When we went in front of the big judge you didn’t stop arguing your point. Not only do I personally thank you, but my children do too because not only were you fighting for me you were fighting for them as well. I just want to thank Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, for everything you have done for me. It is most appreciated and your firm will be highly recommended by me.”

As we all know going through a divorce is not easy, but you and your staff have made it as close to painless as I could have hoped. It is obvious that you care and perform for your clients for their needs and best interests. You have been very professional and all has been timely. Again, thank you for a job well done.”
“I wanted to thank you and your firm for all the legal work you have provided myself and my boyfriend Joe. Your professionalism & expertise, as well as your entire staffs’, has made going through certain legal circumstances a lot easier. Anytime I have called I have had the pleasure of talking with your assistant Candice. She is always very professional and knowledgeable. Candice is a wonderful asset to your firm and you should be very proud of how she represents your office when a client calls. Heath, I appreciate you taking all the countless phone calls over the last few years and listening to me. You always answer ALL my questions and return my phone calls in a timely manner. I sincerely appreciate all the efforts you have made for me, as well as Joe on our behalf. Thank you and your firm again for your knowledge of the law and for always taking the time out for the client. The care and respect you have towards the client is immeasurable.”

“There are not enough accolades to describe Steven…he is the quintessential embodiment of a professional and will do whatever it takes to protect his client’s best interests and wishes. However, at the same time, he is sensitive, kind and compassionate. Steve NEVER forgets that each client is a PERSON and not just a file…The level of care afforded by Steve and his staff is truly genuine and reassuring. I would recommend Steven Shumer absolutely and without reservation.”

“Finding myself facing a divorce situation, but not having or knowing an attorney, I went back to basics and found the yellow pages, calling any attorneys who offered a “free” consultation. That was the very first time I informally met Steven Shumer, via a random phone call which turned out to be one of the best calls I ever made. In the very first conversation, I found myself thinking “this man is not a lawyer” he’s a human being, he’s different from the other attorneys I’ve spoken to. Here I am, a single Mom in pain and in one phone call, he eased it through his undeniable knowledge of the law and compassion that I was able to feel he had for my situation. I immediately came to meet Steven and his staff and retained them based on that phone call and the comfortable and confident feeling I got during my free consultation. Since that time, I am happy to report that my matrimonial case was resolved in my favor and under terms which I was happy about. Even after the divorce, I was forced to retain the firm’s services, a second time, because of additional problems with my ex-husband. That issue was also resolved in my favor. It’s been 5 years since I met Steven and throughout our relationship, he has consistently been professional, kind and understanding. I consider him a friend. The entire staff should be commended for getting the job done and going the distance for their clients. I will forever be grateful to Steven and the entire staff.”

“I was introduced to Steven E. Shumer approximately two years ago as I was seeking legal representation. After consulting with other attorneys, I found Steven not only to be a consummate professional with great knowledge of the law but a person with compassion for others. Whether my dealings with Steven were in person or over the phone to gain a better understanding of certain issues, I was always met with sincerity, honesty and integrity. It has been gratifying to find Steven Shumer, an attorney who I can trust when dealing with delicate and stressful situations.”

“Anyone needing an outstanding lawyer should contact Steve Shumer. He was so very helpful to me and my disabled daughter through her very trying legal proceeding.. He was gracious, sympathetic, efficient and available to me when I needed him. I would not hesitate to call on him again and recommend him and the firm to my friends and family.”
Hartsdale, New York
“Divorce is an intimidating process and I was lucky enough to find an attorney who is always willing to guide me through and explain. Steven Shumer is a brilliant and savvy attorney; the kind you only expect to find at a high powered Manhattan firm and available only clients for which money is no object. He has handled my case with passion and determination even when I went against his advice. Which I will never do again! I found my attorney and a friend for life at this local Long Island law firm.”
