During the toughest time of our lives, we were fortunate enough to be referred to the offices of Pusatier, Sherman, Abbott & Sugarman. We found a group of professionals that conducted themselves beyond our expectations. We were impressed with their excellent communication, their timeliness in dealing with issues, and the compassion they showed to both of us throughout this long, difficult process. We will always be grateful that we were lucky enough to find a firm that put us first.

Steven R. Sugarman

Steve Sugarman was able to pleasantly and effectively maintain a civil discussion of the process, educate both of us on the expectations of what to expect, and most importantly, help us both reach an agreement that we agreed upon and accepted. I would recommend Steve.

- P.H.
Steve was an amazing teacher in the process and gave us so much useful information to help us proceed. Going through a divorce or separation is extremely painful, heart breaking, and emotional. Steve Sugarman with his professional yet compassionate demeanor helped us to move forward in a way that would allow us to redefine our family dynamics and help us to start to heal.
I just wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank you for your help through this process. I don't think anyone would claim this is easy, but I've felt much more confident throughout this whole process having you looking out for my interests. I appreciate all the hard work you've put into the case.
I appreciate your ability to assess and to assist each client’s situation as well as the kindness expressed by your staff. It helped.
Mr. Sugarman made every step of the process easier. He explained each part of a complicated process in an easy manner so that everyone could understand. His emphasis on the children as the main focus kept us moving forward. I believe my children benefited the most from the mediation process. I would like to acknowledge the amazing job Christa does with all of her communication. She is always composed, professional, and compassionate.

- A.P.
Just wanted to send a note of thanks for managing many a difficult moment during our mediation process with calm professionalism and the skill set needed to keep the process moving toward a resolution.
I can’t say “Thank You” enough, for all you have done for me. Making my life a better place. Thank you again Steve! Many thanks to your staff. Wonderful, wonderful people.
The process went smoother than I thought it would. Divorce is the toughest experience I ever went through. The services that Mr. Sugarman provided really helped the process from a legal prospective and a personal prospective. Everything was great thank you so much!
Always an unfortunate situation, but you all do such a fantastic job that I’d recommend you to anyone looking to come to a settlement in the most through and amicable way possible. Thanks again for making a difficult process so much easier!
Steve, I really appreciate your support and advice throughout the process. The spirit of compromise and concern, for both my welfare and for (my wife), that you brought to the process, helped to prevent emotions from getting the best of us and to permit open communication and, ultimately, our reconciliation.
Steve Sugarman and staff did a wonderful job. He was compassionate when needed. He was always professional and very knowledgeable. I am so glad we chose to work with him, he was awesome. I will surely recommend his services to my friends and family if needed. Thank you so much for working with us.
Steve did a great job – made me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. I like very much how he emphasizes the importance of the children involved – the photos are a great idea…I am glad it’s over! I would recommend you, and have.
Process made a difficult situation easier to bear. Mediator was calm, non-judgmental and set the right tone so that all aspects of the issue could be discussed rationally and with the best possible outcome for both parties.
