"When I found myself in a difficult situation five years ago, a close friend of mine told me that there was only one person he would personally recommend – not a law firm, but a person – that was Steven Gasser. I was nervous, apprehensive, falling apart – and Steven was the glue that kept me together. Five years later my life is back on track, I’m a proud father, published author, respected figure at a national charity, but I would certainly not be where I am today without Steven. I was at my lowest ebb, and his kindness and compassion instantly put me at ease, his expertise and knowledge gave my confidence, his support gave me hope. During my most challenging times he was always there at the end of the phone, regardless of the time of day, he made time to listen. He was a calming and reassuring presence. Should I ever have a friend needing help with a family law matter then Steven would be the man I would recommend. He has an incredible way of giving you hope when all feels lost, and not only does he make you feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel, he guides you there every step of the way. I’ll always be grateful for everything he did for me and my family."
