Steven E. Shumer, ESQ.   

We are proud to provide a handful of testimonials from just a few of our current and past clients:

"Steven Shumer represented me with respect to a post-judgment issue arising after my divorce.  Unless someone has lived through a divorce proceeding, they have no idea of the stress involved and the emotional toll the process takes on the parties and the family.  As a lawyer myself, I knew that hiring the "right" attorney could make all the difference in the world, since a matrimonial attorney not only serves as your legal advocate, but quite often must also assume the role of "therapist" and "friend."
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 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 aperson 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."

-F.J. 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."
