I wanted to take the time to write a review, as I was so impressed with Stephen Smith’s representation of me and my custody case in San Diego. I had an exceptionally difficult split with my ex that involved custody over our newborn daughter, multiple police reports, a DVRO, and a move 600 miles away from the scenario. Despite the twists and turns of my ex having a completely FREE attorney and being 12 years older than me, Stephen won my case and kept me sane during a year long custody battle that was nothing short of ugly most of the time. He guided me through two TRO’s, mediation, multiple court appearances, handled in person appearances without me whenever he could so I didn’t have to fly from San Francisco to San Diego, and settled my case out of court completely in my favor. Not only did he get me FULL physical custody of my daughter, but also FULL legal custody, supervised visitation for 6 months at only 6 hours at a time twice a month in northern California, and a child support amount well over what was expected. I was very happy with the results, and a year long emotionally draining nightmare was handled by him with the utmost professionalism and caring demeanor. I can’t imagine having gone through that period of time with another attorney who could navigate all of the random pieces that arose and complicated matters for my case. He reassured me that my life could be normal again and was the deciding factor in this becoming a reality. Given that custody court is one of the most stressful and terrible things that anyone could go through, it is essential to have a good attorney by your side that you can count on and trust… and I feel that Stephen exceeded my expectations when it came to the outcome of my case as well as the support he provided me when everything was falling apart. Thanks to Stephen, my daughter and I were able to stay together full time, move to northern California to have my family’s support during my breakup, and life a peaceful life with all of the drama behind us!
