“Steven is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. I recently hired him to handle a personal injury case. He was not just knowledgeable and fast, but caring and took the time to walk me through the process. I had been nervous about reaching a settlement, unsure what the long-term implications would be for me, but I was thrilled with the result! I cannot more strongly recommend him.”
- Ian R.
“Steven went above and beyond for my case. I felt heard and comfortable. He is easy to talk to and very trustworthy. Not only was he able to help me win my case, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered support to myself when I needed it the most. I am eternally grateful for these services and would recommend him without reservation.”

“It was refreshing to work with Steven. He thoughtfully approached my case and performed a detailed evaluation before giving me any advice. He's looking out for what's best for the client and did not try to sell me in any way, while spending time and effort on understating my case. Efficient with time and provided me with several strategic solutions.”
- Fahmid K.
“I can make the highest possible recommendation for Steven Chizen. He is incredibly knowledgable, detail-oriented and collaborative. He negotiated on my behalf with impressive strength and tact and achieved a better outcome than I had hoped for. He really cares about his clients and the outcome and provides important support throughout the process. I feel lucky he was recommended to me by a prominent Bay Area employment attorney. Overall, a gem. It is clear why Steven was named a Rising Star by Superlawyers.”
- Anna W.
“When I was seeking legal advice I came across large firms that didn't return my phone calls, had exorbitant rates, or wanted a retainer before learning anything about my potential case. I'm so glad I found Steven. He is extremely responsive, knowledgable and seems to really care about reaching a positive outcome. He takes the time to explain everything in great detail and does a good job of simplifying complex legal concepts. Since finding Steven I've consulted with him on a couple additional issues over the years and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.”
- George C.
