Stephen G. Linder

Attorney at Law

People come to me when they’re facing some of the most difficult and painful experiences of their lives. Although it’s never easy to see someone hurting, it is my sincerest pleasure to get to know them and help them pave a way forward. Often, my clients are skeptical that there is a good way forward, but I choose to focus on each situation’s potential, share that vision with each client, and fight for them with everything I’ve got.

Considering a divorce? Let’s make sure you get what you need from the experience.

No matter how amicable the people involved, divorces tend to be among the most emotionally trying of legal proceedings. You’re undergoing a big life adjustment, and a lot is up in the air. Who will get which property and assets? How will we divvy up time with the kids? Who has to cover which payments? The list goes on. As your attorney, I will use every ounce of my knowledge and insight to help you get the most out of your separation. I even have unique experience successfully dividing up complex estates and helping business owners protect their companies through a divorce.

Allow me to alleviate your stress & help you get past this.

Every now and then, something comes along that seems to turn your life upside down. Maybe you’ve gotten hurt or lost a loved one in an accident. Maybe a professional you trusted has committed malpractice, leaving you with the consequences. Or maybe you’re going through a divorce or child custody battle.

No matter the source of your stress, I’d like to help. I may not be able to undo the damage that was done to you or your family, but at the very least, I can take steps to alleviate your legal headache. That way, you can spend less time worrying about what’s going to happen with your case and more time focusing on what really matters.

Now, I’m not one to make promises I can’t keep, so I won’t sit here and tell you that I make problems magically disappear. However, there’s quite a bit that I can do to turn your concerns into manageable, proactive solutions.

For starters, I’d like to answer all of your questions during a free, no-pressure consultation. If you’re injured or stuck at home, don’t worry — I make home and hospital visits. As I get to know you and your situation, I may suggest a number of options, but I will make sure that you are always in the driver’s seat. And, since I’m an advocate of healing and moving forward, I may even set you up with other resources that can help you do just that.
