“Compassion, competence, and good judgment are essential to practice family law; when family and finances are on the line, these skills must be used to achieve the best possible outcome.”

-Eliza Steinberg


From day one, I was extremely impressed by Eliza’s decisiveness, experience, knowledge, attention to detail, dedication, responsiveness as well as her kindness and being so personable. I think these attributes make an outstanding divorce attorney and are relatively rare to find, Eliza checked all these boxes and more and did an outstanding job for me and I couldn’t be more thankful. I was going through a very tough time not only with my divorce but with my health and family issues, Eliza was extremely patient and kind the entire process.

Former Client – April 2023, AVVO Review

Eliza was very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and detailed in my case. She was a true and capable advocate for me and for the best interest of my child during the entire divorce process.

Former Client – June 2020, AVVO Review

I HIGHLY recommend using Eliza for your family law needs. I had a couple of lawyers before I finally found Eliza – absolutely no comparison. She is thorough, dedicated, and wicked smart while being patient, thoughtful, and responsive.
