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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dear Mr. Shumer: It has been a pleasure working with you and your assistant, Angie, on my divorce. 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.

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, Wexler & Shumer, LLP, for everything you have done for me. It is most appreciated and your firm will be highly recommended by me.

I would like to thank everyone at Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & 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.
