From my first contact with attorney Stearman, I knew I found the right attorney. I sent him a contact request through his website on a weekend and he contacted me by phone that same day to discuss my case. Trying to go through a divorce during Covid-19 is really a challenge, but attorney Stearman made it effortless. From my first appointment, he put me at ease by offering to consult with me on-line using a Zoom meeting or to meet in his office in a large conference room.  At the first meeting, he got all my information and started my divorce for me that same day. A hearing for custody and support was set and due to Covid-19, I was afraid to have to appear in court. When it came time for the hearing, I was able to go to attorney Stearman’s office and we appeared in court from his office by using his laptop computer.  Fortunately after the hearing, my husband (now ex-husband) and I were able to agree on everything and Mr. Stearman prepared a settlement agreement and sent that to the court, which finalized our divorce without having to go to court again. For anyone going through a divorce of divorce issues, I highly recommend attorney Stearman.

When my husband surprised me by having me served with divorce papers, I did not know where to turn, as I have never been through a divorce before. Thankfully, one of my friends recommended I contact Attorney Stearman and I was so glad I did. He was amazing- providing me with all the care and attention I needed while aggressively representing me. I am very happy with the outcome of my case. I strongly recommend Attorney Stearman to anyone who needs a really good family law attorney.


September 26, 2019

I found Mr. Stearman to be knowledgeable, thorough, reasonable, accessible, fast-moving, and effective in a complicated civil lawsuit that I brought to him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants that kind of atypical legal representation!

We live in  Newport Beach and needed to hire an attorney for our daughter’s divorce and custody case. She lives in Huntington Beach. We hired Mr. Stearman because of his 36 years of experience. We believe it was one of the best things we ever did for our daughter. He is extremely knowledgeable and a seasoned litigator in court. Our daughter was awarded almost everything she wanted and felt confident in court with him by her side. He prepared her well for the court experience and consistently gave us good legal and common sense advice. Although we are not wealthy, he is well worth the money. Some people invest in a good car so we decided to invest in our daughters future and get her a really good attorney. We are forever grateful for his expertise and support for our daughter during a very stressful time in her life.  We would highly recommend Attorney Stearman to anyone looking for a really good divorce attorney.


November 13, 2018

Mr. Stearman was truly a blessing to my husband and myself throughout a very difficult spousal support case. His expertise, professionalism and knowledge was greatly appreciated. Mr. Stearman was always available to speak with or email. His quick response to our questions and concerns was so important to us. He has been our attorney on 2 occasions and we will definitely retain Mr. Stearman on any future needs that might come up.


November 7, 2018

I want to take this opportunity to thank my attorney, Jeffrey Stearman, for handling my very complicated divorce. He managed to work out an agreement that was fair and equitable without the animosity and bitterness that so often goes hand and hand with these situations. He displayed hard work, integrity, knowledge, and empathy. And finally, it was his accessibility and perseverance that led to such a great outcome.


July 26, 2018

Last year I reached out to attorney Stearman to represent me during my divorce. He came highly recommended by a couple of my friends who has used his services or consulted with him. Attorney Stearman represented me during my divorce over the past year and carried me through a very difficult time, addressing the needs of my children as well as my own needs, through his representation. He is well versed in family law and did such an amazing job representing me. I would never wish anyone to go through the difficulties of a divorce and “custody” hearings but if you are or are contemplating it… give Jeffrey Stearman a call and at a minimum, meet with him. I genuinely feel I had someone fighting for me in court and not just running through the motions.


May 3, 2018

Jeffrey was super helpful during this difficult process, from start to finish. He was always quick to respond via email or telephone if I had a question that needed an immediate answer. No one wants to be in the predicament needing an attorney but  I felt a sense of ease knowing that I had him on my side representing my family’s best interests.


January 26,  2018

I was really impressed with how quickly I could get in and meet with Attorney Stearman. I had gone to a couple other attorneys but the experience was not pleasant. I got the feeling that I was an annoyance for them. And others were so crazy over-priced that I was immediately turned off by the experience. Jeffrey was great, down to earth, friendly, and understanding. I would absolutely recommend calling Attorney Stearman to anyone looking for a good honest attorney. He provides personalized service and helped me tremendously and worked efficiently to resolve my custody case in Orange County. He worked with me on the weekends, on his vacation and even after hours.  He always seemed reachable by email or phone. Never once did I feel ignored. If you ever need help with a family law matter, hire Attorney Stearman. Thank you so much!!!


October 4,  2017

I fired my first attorney and hired Mr. Stearman in her place. The difference was like night and day. Jeff was able to advocate for me calmly and professionally even though my ex’s attorney was unstable and was bad tempered. It was a very difficult situation. Attorney Stearman was able to get my support payment reduced by about $1000 a month, and get my divorce finalized. If you are looking for a divorce attorney, save yourself some time, trouble and headaches and hire Jeffrey D. Stearman first.


 June 6, 2017

Mr. Stearman is an outstanding attorney and I would highly recommend him.  I was in desperate need of an attorney to represent me when my former spouse, who was cooperating at the time, lawyered up and got an attorney. He then proposed a very unbalanced settlement proposal, of course all to his benefit.  Mr. Stearman was actually referred to me by two different acquaintances and his experience and expertise made all the difference in my case. He is very skilled and knowledgeable of the law, inside and out. He was able to obtain a settlement agreement that was much more equitable. He was always very prompt with responses to my inquiries, including returning my telephone calls and responding to my emails, even after hours.

March 18, 2017

I contacted Jeff Stearman regarding custody of my daughter. In our very first meeting, I was taken back when he suggested that I try to reach a formal agreement with my daughter’s father before proceeding with legal action. In other words: before hiring him, he was more concerned with my interest than his own. Integrity like that is hard to find. I did end up needing legal counsel and Jeff proved to be personable, professional, effective and honest. I highly recommend him.

 


January 24, 2017

Mr. Stearman represented me in my divorce case last year. He took the time to understand my needs and concerns regarding the custody arrangements and orders pertaining to my children.  He was also very reassuring to me during a time in my life that was a very stressful and difficult process. Most of all, he is very reachable by phone and email.  I was very satisfied with his representation and would highly recommend him.

 


September 15,  2016

I was a father fighting for custody of my two children and needed an attorney willing to fight for me. I am so thankful I found Attorney Stearman.  I found Jeffrey to be experienced and professional, as well as supportive and easy to reach via phone or email. From the beginning of my case, he understood how important my case was to me and he became 100% committed to getting me the outcome I hoped for. Thank you Mr. Stearman!

 


April 12,  2016

I would highly recommend Jeffrey Stearman. I was completely satisfied with his services. He was always punctual, totally reliable, and no matter how many questions I had, he was always there- answering every phone call and every e-mail. If he was not available, he would always respond to me within 24 hours or less, no matter what time or day of the week. I am very grateful, happy and overall proud of being represented by him.
I would recommend Mr. Stearman’s office to everyone who is looking for competent legal advice.

 


February 15,  2016

I was in one of the darkest points of my life when I contacted the Law Office of Jeffrey Stearman for assistance with my divorce. However, a good attorney like Mr. Stearman can make the divorce process smoother. I was well taken care of and received the attention I needed. Attorney Stearman always made sure to answer my questions and personally return my calls and emails. I would highly recommend attorney Stearman if you are going through a divorce.

 


December 28, 2015

My experience with Attorney Jeffrey D. Stearman in Huntington Beach has been outstanding from beginning to end. Initially, he provided me with all of the information, guidance and support I needed when my case started. Throughout the process, he was responsive to my questions, discreet and knowledgeable. If you should find yourself needing an attorney, I cannot recommend Mr. Stearman highly enough. He offers very competitive rates, 100% professionalism and is very accessible by phone and/or email.

 


October 23, 2015

The divorce procedure is one of the hardest things I have ever endured. Fortunately for me, I hired Jeffrey Stearman to represent me. Mr. Stearman’s ambition, professionalism and good hearted nature got me through the process with my head held high on days when I just wanted to give up. When it was over I walked away with my dignity, self respect and a comfortable future planned for me and my family due to the efforts, work and advice of Mr. Stearman. I would not hesitate for one minute to contact his office again should I need legal assistance.

He was extremely responsive and helpful with my situation. I can be very difficult and ask a lot of questions and he was very helpful and patient with me. I highly recommend Jeff Stearman. Thanks again Jeff.

 


June 11, 2015

When I shopped Jeffrey D. Stearman, I found that every attorney I spoke with was bouncing all over the place for my business, not paying attention to the information I was providing, and showing no direct honesty as Mr. Stearman did when we spoke. He left me a feeling of confidence and took all of the pressure off of me that an Out Of State case could cause. I highly recommend his services and would not hesitate to use him again.

 


May 28, 2015

My experience with Mr. Stearman has been excellent. I recommend him highly to anyone with complex child custody and support issues.

 


March 31, 2015

I had contacted Attorney Jeffrey Stearman on a recommendation from a friend who is also an attorney. I must say that I am glad to have acted on this recommendation.  Without going into details of a somewhat unique and complicated divorce case, Mr. Stearman not only proved his level of expertise, but also offered emotional and practical support which can be an invaluable benefit in such situations.  I felt that he was there to guide and counsel; he truly took the time to help me reach decisions that will best address my concerns while helping me not get caught up in the emotional aspect of this process. I highly recommend Attorney Stearman.

Jeffrey Stearman did a great job for me & always responded quickly with any questions I had for him, Jeffrey took care of my needs through this process & would highly recommend Jeffrey services.


November 18, 2014

Mr. Stearman was a fantastic lawyer. I never had to give any thought or concerns about my divorce, which meant, I was able to get on with my life. What a relief it was to have him take care of everything for me.


August 28, 2014

Attorney Stearman recently helped me with my case. I greatly appreciated his no-nonsense approach to a process that has a tendency to be emotionally charged. He presents things clearly and educates you on decisions to be made. He was great, efficient, and gracious when things needed to be done. I have already recommended Mr. Stearman to people that I talk with.


June 5, 2014

Outstanding service and results! Attorney Jeffrey Stearman was referred to me by another Lawyer, which turned-out to be a terrific decision. Jeffrey represented me extremely well. He is timely, professional, articulate and very well organized. He follows-up on a regular basis, values mutual respect and spoke to me as a concerned individual. In short, he cares; and it made the difference between my ability to survive financially (and emotionally, etc.) – or declare bankruptcy. I happily survived the case and my children and I are doing very well. I highly regard Mr. Stearman and happily refer Jeffrey Stearman.


April 15, 2014

I met Jeffrey twice and on the second time was able to obtain him as my lawyer. He has been awesome! Compassionate, straight forward, logical, and showed a great deal of patience. I was so frightened about my divorce and how I was going to be able to pay my bills and pay for my ex. Thank you very much, Jeffrey.  You took my calls, tried to keep my costs down and got me through a terrible time in my life.


February 24, 2014

Mr. Stearman, once again, I want to convey my gratitude in how well you’ve handled my case these past few months. I used to think badly of lawyers (the expense and all). However- its very clear to me I could not navigate the legal system in the way I have without your knowledge and coaching and negotiating expertise. The fact is, with your help, I have a young child that is safe today and would not have been- for that I am so grateful. Feel free to post this on your blog, website or where ever- you deserve it.


February 3, 2014

Attorney Stearman has been an extreme blessing in my current complex divorce. He recently represented me when my husband contested a restraining order and I couldn’t have been more impressed . Attorney Stearman is professional, knowledgeable, and always has the best interest of myself and my children in the forefront of any decision that needs to be made. I would recommend Attorney Jeffrey Stearman without hesitation!


January 15, 2014

It had taken me 2 years to try to finalize my divorce with my prior attorney. After finally going to Attorney Stearman, he quickly understood and assisted with what I needed. He and his assistant Shelby were very friendly and professional. Everything was taken care of for me so fast. I really appreciate the professionalism and expertise of Attorney Stearman and now recommend him to anyone I know going through a divorce.


September 5, 2013

Jeffrey Stearman did a great job on my case. He fought for my rights and continued until I had satisfying results.

I would recommend Mr. Stearman to anyone in need of a great attorney.


August 21, 2013

July 8, 2013

Jeffrey provides exemplary legal representation. His quick response to my messages and attention to my case details exceeded my expectations. I have recommended Mr. Stearman to others.


May 27, 2013

I have dealt with approx. 4 lawyers pertaining to a variety of matters. Mr. Stearman, however, handled my case with professionalism, confidence and kept me completely informed on what he was doing as well as what the other party was doing. Also, I felt I got the representation that I paid for. Other firms seemed to nickel and dime me to death. I felt my case was a rather uncommon case to handle (family law) but Jeffrey was very confident about the situation and the outcome which in return gave me the confidence to even proceed with the case.  I was very satisfied with the outcome as a result of Jeffrey’s work efforts on my behalf.


March 13, 2013

Mr. Stearman is a very competent and professional attorney. Going through a divorce is such a very hard thing. My only concern was custody of my children and Mr. Stearman understood that and in the end he got me exactly what I had asked for. He always returned my phone calls and emails promptly. His secretary was always very professional and very nice when I called or had to come in to the office to drop paperwork off or meet with Mr. Stearman. I feel, his best interest is his clients and I would recommend him, with high regards.


February 26, 2013

One of the best attorneys in Orange County.


February 8, 2013

I retained Jeffrey Stearman after the working relationship with the prior attorney handling my divorce became a struggle. I was impressed that I was able to speak with him directly upon my first call to his office. From my first meeting through to the final divorce decree, Jeffrey remained steadfast with his approach to my case which was ultimately settled in my favor. He offered sound advice, was promptly responsive to my needs, patient with his guidance and relied on his firm grasp on the legal aspects of my case to settle it. Divorce is difficult enough to maneuver through and Mr. Stearman kept the process focused and every question was worthy of his personal response. I am forever grateful of the advice he provided and the course his advice set me on for my future.


January 25, 2013

I contacted Mr. Stearman when I was served papers unexpectedly from my husband. From the start I felt that Jeffrey was there to look out for my best interests, and he proved just that over the course of a difficult divorce, made so by my husband and his Attorney. He was very knowledgeable and saw clearly what my husband was attempting to do and did not let me get taken advantage of. Jeffrey was always there for me to answer any questions I had. He seems to always be available by phone or email.  I am pleased with the outcome of my divorce and I owe that to Jeffrey Stearman. I can now breathe easier knowing this stressful time of my life is over and I have been protected. I would not only recommend Jeffrey Stearman but would use him again in the future if that ever became necessary.


January 23, 2013

I came in with a million questions and came out with a million answers. He was able to provide all information and documentation needed to make my Divorce clean and simple. Mr Stearman was very accessible even through E-mail communications.


January 8, 2013

Almost always able to reach Mr. Stearman by telephone or email when I have questions. Very impressive quality for any attorney!


December 1, 2012

Navigating within the legal system is often extremely complex and at times emotionally challenging. As a first time legal client I was uncertain and at times afraid of what to expect. Attorney Jeffrey Stearman immediately put me at ease with my case and went on to prove the high level of competence he represents. His command of the law, courtroom presence and ability to achieve my objectives and goals are unmatched. Even beyond all these qualities Jeffrey has a true compassion for each of his clients and will treat you with the utmost respect, honesty and commitment. I strongly encourage you to seek out his services and be assured your legal matters are in the best of hands.


July 23, 2012

I contacted Mr. Stearman to help me with my divorce. My ex-wife was trying to get more money from me. With Mr. Stearman’s help he was able to get my child support lower than what I was paying originally and I was able to get everything that I had asked for. He was very easy to work with and was always available for any questions that I had. I recommend him to anyone I know or to anyone who is going through the same situation. GREAT JOB MR STEARMAN


July 22, 2012

We went through 5 lawyers and we did not get anywhere. With Jeffrey we got everything we were asking for. He communicates everything which a lot of attorneys do not at all only when they wanted a payment. Most of all he lets you know of what your situation really is, he does not promise things he knows would be impossible just to get your business.


July 7, 2012

He made me feel comfortable throughout the legal process of divorce. He was very understanding and quick in responding to any requests. He was very trust worthy and I felt completely confident in his ability.


June 28,  2012

February 3, 2012

Thank you Attorney Stearman. I was in way over my head. A lot of property was involved, and you found some more I had no clue about in discovery. Those were dark days when no one else said I’d have a chance to come out with a reasonable settlement – but you did it!


December 14,  2011

Jeffrey, I got lucky! I found you! Seriously, without your help my now-ex would have gotten everything his way. He had a powerful law firm paid for by his rich family and I was in the cross-hairs.


Sept. 11, 2011

My husband and I engaged Mr. Stearman to assist our son in a criminal matter. He responded immediately with sound and reassuring counsel. Mr. Stearman’s fees were reasonable and when he resolved the case without a going to court he surprised us by returning most of our retainer. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Stearman. He was compassionate, professional, and competent.


April 15, 2011

Jeffrey was always on top of my case. Communication was great, and he got back to me in a timely manner when I called or e-mailed. His staff was always courteous when I called or came in to drop things off.

February 18, 2011

Mr. Stearman is one of the most professional attorneys there is! Very courteous and professional and lets you know your options and helps you settle your case in a manner that is best for you.

He will fight as hard as he has to win your case and I would highly recommend him to anyone who has family law issues.
