Client Reviews

Responsive to Questions Stephen was easy to deal with and always was quick with his responses to my questions regarding my bankruptcy. He was clear and gave good instructions all the way through always telling me what to expect next.  –Timothy

Sound Legal Advice Stephen has worked on many probate cases for our company. He explains the process and potential problems with each case in a very clear and understandable manner. He provides excellent and sound legal advice, prompt service and communicates effectively on an ongoing basis. I recommend his services highly and without reservation.

Reasonable Fees My bank account became $0 due to a garnishment from an out of state collection agency. I was referred to Mr. Hinze. He returned my call very quickly and spent sometime on the phone explaining to me... I made an appointment to meet him in his law firm and hired him to work on my case. Today the collection agency released my money. The whole process working with Mr. Hinze was very pleasant. He returned calls or emails very timely and explained everything as clearly as possible. His charge is very reasonable and I know he spent more time on my case. I owe him more. I highly recommend him! – Noelle

Knowledgeable Representation - We were fortunate to have hired Steve to represent us during a difficult time and chapter in our lives. He is very knowledgeable and prepared us thoroughly to go through the bankruptcy process and proceedings. He made a difficult situation much more bearable. We highly recommend him!


Get the Best Outcome Mr. Hinze has represented me for more than a year and is always responsive to phone calls and emails. He has worked hard during this time trying to get the best outcome for me. He is very knowledgeable and is able to answer questions quickly. He was recommended to me by a friend and I would certainly recommend him to others. My situation involves bankruptcy, multiple properties and a trust. He has come up with plans that benefit me and still keep everyone else happy. We are still working on the various issues. He contacts me regularly to update me.
