Hiring Steven was quite possibly the best decision of my life! Steven took the time to hear every single one of my concerns and address them in an extremely clear, concise and thorough manner. He guided me through the notoriously complicated and stressful process of probate with the utmost of compassion and dedication. Thank you Steven! Andrew Gold
I am a new attorney practicing in Allegheny County–the opposite side of the state from Attorney Fromm. Attorney Fromm and I have never personally met, but recently I contacted him to guide me through a legal issue for a client because, judging from his credentials and reviews, I was confident he could point me in the right direction. Attorney Fromm did not have to take my call, but he did, and I must say that his reputation as an expert estate and tax attorney precede him well. I think most attorneys would have shrugged off a young attorney calling in to their office asking for guidance (especially one they did not know); however, Attorney Fromm patiently and kindly answered my questions and alleviated any uncertainties I had.
There is no question that what Attorney Fromm did on my behalf was a rarity for our profession. He was professional and knowledgeable, and I cannot imagine that he is anything less with his clients. Surely, if other attorneys can rely on Attorney Fromm’s advice, client’s should feel comfortable and confident in doing so. I would highly recommend his services (and will do so) to any client with an estate or tax issue. Ryan James
Steven Fromm is very knowledgeable in many areas of the law, but extremely knowledgeable in estate planning. He took the time to understand how I wanted my estate distributed and he was also able to make many recommendations that I had not even contemplated. He took the time to answer all of my follow up questions to ensure all my needs were met. He is compassionate and cares about his clients and their families as people. I’m very glad to have met him and have him as my attorney. Leslie B.
Steven has been instrumental inhelping my partner and I to create a secure and satisfying estate plan, which meets or exceeds all of our wishes and contains contingencies for everything from medical issues to wealth management and living wills. In this process, Steven has also become a friend. If you need Estate Planning, Tax Advice, a Will or a trust, etc., we highly recommend Steven Fromm, Esquire. He will listen and be sensitive to your unique situation. Patrick
I found Steven Fromm online while searching for a lawyer to help me set up my Non-Profit company. I was very concerned about giving another lawyer my money because I had worked with a different lawyer a couple months before and that lawyer did not do anything that he had promised. Mr. Fromm is one of the best, if not the best, tax attorney that I’ve ever met. I’ve worked with many lawyers throughout my career and he is the best that I have ever worked with. He takes on your case like he would his own. He is also incredibly knowledgeable in his field. When he says he’s going to do something, he does it immediately. He is not just a wonderful lawyer, but also a wonderful person. I would recommend Mr. Fromm to anyone. Erica Matthews
Steve Fromm was extremely helpful to my wife and myself in preparing the legal documents for our estate planning as well as responding to our federal and state income tax inquires. He was a very good listener as to our needs and structured his replies in everyday language that my wife and I could understand. He asked thought provoking questions and made recommendations to enhance our goals.He was very timely with both his verbal and written responses. We receive occasional e-mails from him addressing matters which could impact us and we never hesitate to contact him when we have a change with our personal circumstances. His knowledge of the law as well as his practical approach to an issue are very much valued by us. Paul Voss
Steve Fromm is a superb lawyer and I highly recommend him! After a terrible experience with a previous lawyer, I entered his office feeling very deflated, confused and discouraged. However, I left his office feeling enthusiastic and eager to get down to business. My situation was very unique, I needed his expertise for an array of things and Steve was able to address all of my needs. With a limited timeframe and an extreme amount of obstacles to overcome he worked meticulously, diligently and accomplished extraordinary results. His professionalism is incomparable and I am forever grateful. Renice Cox
After several futile attempts at overall estate and financial planning with other attorneys, I sought a recommendation from a trusted financial intermediary. Steve Fromm had provided outstanding client service to a mutual client of theirs with needs similar to mine.
I wanted someone to review everything that had been done for me (or is it TO me) by previous counsel. This included a review of my will, a Family Limited Partnership, several Trusts, beneficiary designations, custodianship arrangements, a pre-nuptial agreement, various “Powers”, etc..
In addition, and MOST important to me, was a tool (or model) which would readily depict the outcomes of my choices regarding my estate in a QUANTITATIVE fashion; that is translate those lengthy legal documents from words into numbers! Personally I have nothing against words, but numbers move me….
Needless to say, I was delighted when Steve responded to that request, within a day or so, with a financial model which instantly caught my attention. We filled in and polished up some account values, asset list, etc., and voila, there it was, a spreadsheet document that served as the “guide” for all other subsequent work including the will, pre-nuptial agreement, trusts and the like. This same request had been made of several other attorneys with whom I worked in the past, and it was either ignored, blown off, or messed up in some way.
Steve worked diligently with me to get a clear understanding of my particular wishes, which included at least a few unusual and special nuances. His interpretation of my sometimes vague answers was wonderful. Generally within a few hours, and certainly within a day, a new or revised analysis, spreadsheet or document would show up ready for review.
His diligence forced me to be a better client! Historically I have gotten bogged down on thorny issues, torturing myself to come up with the perfect answer. More than a few of these “thorny” items came up over the course of our engagement. I’m picturing a bewildered Steve on the other end of the phone, as I yammered my way through some answer that was far more difficult than the question warranted. Steve was patient and would reel me back in, than offer either an on the spot strategy or suggestion, or would follow up by e-mail or phone call a sensible explanation and/or a variety of possible answers or strategies.
I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. Last Thursday (June 10, 2010), we reviewed, completed and signed all of the important documents.
For the first time EVER I feel that my estate matters are properly attended to, and I take great comfort in that!
Its so true….you get what you pay for! James Schmid
