When one encounters a traumatic life altering circumstance, it’s rather difficult to see the ‘silver lining’; however, I consider being represented by Stephen Birman to be just that – the very best thing that happened during the most challenging of times. Stephen’s knowledge and compassion coupled with his high regard for integrity and professionalism truly makes him exceptional. From the very outset, his advice to me was very simple – to focus my efforts on my recovery, he’ll focus his efforts on the legalities – as simple as that may sound – it speaks volumes to his competence, integrity and professionalism – qualities that were of utmost importance to me. At every turn, he kept me well informed, always direct and precise and never left pondering of the outcome. From being a sounding board during difficult times, to ensuring every concern of mine was thoroughly addressed (and responding to emails and voice messages within the hour!), he ensured I was consistently provided excellent service. Thank you Stephen for all you’ve done for me, words will never be able to capture my appreciation; I cannot imagine getting through the past few years without your guidance and support. You are truly gifted at what you do!
