Stephen Rue is a Miracle Worker!
Stephen Rue managed to mediate my very contentious divorce case ultimately saving me tens of thousands of dollars in legal and expert fees. He used his expertise and ability to take the emotion out of the situation to guide us to a fair and equitable settlement for community property and custody. On several occasions it appeared that negotiations were at an impasse. However Stephen never gave up and came up with creative solutions to keep the negotiations going. I am very happy with the end result and would recommend Stephen to anyone looking for a top notch family law attorney.

An Expert In Family Law
After getting a restraining order on Friday after 5pm, I started looking and reviewing a lot of lawyers in my area for an expert in Family Law. On Monday night (holiday), I called Mr. Rue and he took my call. He scheduled an urgent appointment for me the next day, after briefly explaining my case and informed him of the court date within two day. Next day, I met with Mr. Rue and he studied the case and developed a plan in a very short time and different approaches including pressuring the other party to dismiss the case. He assured me that he will do everything in his power and knowledge to end the case in my favor and all I need to do is sit back and relax. On the court day, Mr. Rue was able to pressure the other party to dismiss the case. He was able to protect my future and my reputation through his representation. Lastly, if I didn't win the case, I might lose a lot of things such as school and job due to security clearances.
