Client Comments

"Steve Schlissel, Esquire, is among the finest matrimonial family law attorneys I know. He has selflessly served the best interests of hundreds of my friends and clients, as well as countless children - including my own - as a founder of We Care Organization. Steve has made a remarkable impact in our community as a brilliant practitioner, father, grandfather, and child advocate, and is referenced as a legal referral on my office website www.WealthTransitionPlanning.INFO. Steve and his office provide extraordinary service and attention to clients with proprietary knowledge of the law. Together with his dedicated partners, office staff, and support, the Schlissel group heads a short list of family law practitioners I am always confident to refer."

"Steve Schlissel is not only a phenomenal lawyer with a brilliant mind and a terrific command of the law; he is also a compassionate, caring, and astute gentleman. Steve has been my attorney for almost a decade (working on various ongoing aspects of my divorce and post-divorce proceedings) and I have consistently found him to be responsive and on point. He fights for, and truly believes in, me and has provided invaluable counsel and support over the years. My children and I truly owe our lives to him."

-Judy Gray

"As an experienced litigator, when it came to choosing an attorney to represent me in my own difficult matrimonial action, I asked other attorneys and several Judges for their choices, and Steve came highly recommended. Without fail, his reputation is well deserved. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of family law issues; he is a skilled attorney with an uncompromising blend of compassion and toughness. He is a wonderful sounding board, and takes part in helping the client make what can be some fairly hard decisions. Through it all, Steve keeps his eye on the long view, steering a course towards a sensible and practical outcome. He is the attorney the rest of us practitioners hope to become. "
