When I first came to Plog & Stein it was simply discuss the renegotiation of child support. Little did I know that within 72 hours I would be retaining Steve Plog for a custody battle. His passion and ferocity kept me going through this long ordeal. I have recommended him to my friends and I would recommend him to anyone with who wants honest and effective representation."
"I then met you and your staff and quickly my concerns were put at ease.
I would like to express my appreciation of your representation during my divorce and custody issues. I’m not sure that there is anyone that wants to ever go through a divorce, much less a very challenging one. Unfortunately mine was the latter.
Your firm was suggested to me by another attorney I knew. I had met with a few others but I needed the “right” attorney on my side and not knowing anything about your firm I was concerned. I then met you and your staff and quickly my concerns were put at ease. You took the time to understand my case and issues. Your knowledge of the law, honestly answering any question I had, and your demeanor was like no other attorney I’ve ever worked with or consulted with.
When it came time for court proceedings you spoke like it was actually you in my position, knowing all the facts of my life and the case as if they were your own. I felt I had an attorney that really did care about me, and not only me but the entire family. You always presented both sides of an issue to me in a way that was fair to everyone, but more important you were ethical in everything you did. You weren’t afraid of the hard issues and didn’t back off from being firm when something called for it, but you always did so holding on to ethics for the good of all parties.
Sometimes during a divorce we lose sight of that. I didn’t get everything I wanted during the divorce, but in the end it was fair and am very appreciative that I had you next to me. I will recommend your firm to anyone that is unsure of who to represent them. Thank you really doesn’t say enough."
"I recommend Sarah and the attorneys at Plog & Stein to anyone that has these types of family issues and need strong, knowledgeable representation.
I am thankful for the job Sarah McCain did for me in my fight with my ex-wife for visitation rights with my daughter. Sarah and the team at Plog & Stein handled my case in an efficient, affordable, and professional manner. Sarah negotiated a new parenting plan as well as acceptable visiting rights and even a favorable modification in my child support. I recommend Sarah and the attorneys at Plog & Stein to anyone that has these types of family issues and need strong, knowledgeable representation."
"My son’s future is secure, and my own future is rightfully in my hands again.
I have recently taken pause to consider my life situation just prior to meeting Stephen Plog and to compare it to my present. My son and I were in need of the right kind of assistance, and I found it in Mr. Plog. Life was chaotic because I had been struggling to finalize a divorce for a very long time and things were still stagnant.
After dismissing one attorney and making every attempt to keep things rolling on my own, I came across the Plog and Stein website. I needed someone who had a great deal of knowledge and skill in the legal profession, but I also needed someone I could trust to represent me.
After my first meeting with Mr. Plog, I knew I had found the right firm to meet my needs. I wanted an attorney that was securely by my side and who would hold my son's and my best interests first and foremost...even above their own. Another criteria that I was seeking to meet was an attorney that understood the human side of the divorce process. My ability to provide for my son financially and emotionally was to be determined by the outcome of the proceedings. I would be connected to his father for the rest of his life, so making the worst of a divorce would have likely hampered my child’s future.
Stephen dug in right away and took control of the case. I was able to trust Stephen’s integrity because he has the wisdom and skill set required to do his work effectively. I was not a bystander in the process, nor would I choose to be, and Mr. Plog was generous with his time and efforts to keep me in the loop. No one wants to pay out money unnecessarily, but Mr. Plog is in business and has his own bills to pay. I must say that I have already nearly recouped all of his fees from the divorce settlement that Mr. Plog was able to help me reach, and I am only a few months divorced.
Hiring Plog and Stein was a very wise financial decision. Mr. Plog and his entire staff were friendly, professional, and very good at their assigned tasks. On the few occasions when Mr. Plog was out of the office and something needed to be done quickly, another attorney proved to be well informed and just as capable. Having had Plog and Stein represent me has allowed me to move forward in a very positive direction but with much more. My son’s future is secure, and my own future is rightfully in my hands again. I am now and will ever be grateful to this firm for their part in my new beginning."
"At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties
I highly recommend Stephen Plog for anyone in need of a top notch domestic relations attorney. After a 27 year marriage, Stephen represented me in a complicated and sometimes bitter divorce with many unique challenges. At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties but limited my alimony payments to only 3 years. He is smart, cuts to the chase, knows the court system in the Denver metropolitan area and can be trusted to get his clients the best possible settlement."
"Their service was outstanding, with prompt responses to all of my questions
Sarah McCain and Plog & Stein were wonderful to me during such a difficult time in my life. Their service was outstanding, with prompt responses to all of my questions and creative ideas throughout the proceedings to help things go smoothly. Sarah's compassion, patience, and expertise were especially invaluable to me. I highly recommend them."
"Thanks to Plog and Stein I am able to spend the time with my children they so desperately need from their father.
I found Stephen Plog at one of the lowest points in my life. My children had been taken from me by their mother and I had no idea of what I was going to do. I contacted Stephen's office to set an appointment. Stephen called me back within a few hours. We met the next day. At the end of our first meeting, I felt so much relief and confidence. By the end of the week, we had been to court and I had my kids back. Stephen was calm and cool in the courtroom. He came prepared for battle and completely overwhelmed my ex-wife's attorney. Stephen has helped me multiple times over the last few years. Each time has been a success. Thanks to Plog and Stein I am able to spend the time with my children they so desperately need from their father. Thank You Stephen."
"I am without doubts that God sent you to us!
I wish to thank you, Stephen, so gracefully for our on-going relationship that began in February 2009. I came to acquire your name from a personal referral through Riggs, Abney, Neal, Turpen, Orbison, & Lewis (Denver Office DTC). I was searching for a divorce attorney that would honor my main objectives: to end my 22 year marriage through ethical means with no moral regrets – the financial settlements were irrelevant.
I was looking for an attorney who would listen to my children’s needs – not wants. I wanted an attorney who would leave no loopholes for ongoing debates and be a forward thinker knowing that our lives as a new family unit of three would come out far better on the other end. It is very important to me that you know confidently and accept with pride that you delivered to my children, as well as to me, a very new and wonderful life.
Managing an alcoholic throughout my 22 year marriage was very emotionally, physically, mentally, and financially draining. I full-heartedly without hesitations give you credit for allowing my children the childhood they ultimately deserved and a life without regrets as their mother. I have never looked back on my decisions nor have ever second guessed the means in which you handled our lives.
We are very happy today because of the human kindness you put into our transition. My son is a freshman and plays fierce lacrosse. He is quite popular with the ladies and has such a warm heart; he is very close to his sister. My daughter is in fourth grade, loves to sing in the choir, and wants to grow up to be a special needs teacher or vet. As for me, I am excelling in Douglas County School District as a learning specialist and consultant. I feel purposeful and successful. My ex-husband's life did end tragically from his alcoholism this past January, 2013. He never repaired his relationship with his children. In the end, it has been a sad transition for both children. However, I have no regrets with this divorce, or how it was executed. In time, I, too, will go to my grave with a clean conscience and have moved forward with my life having embraced true forgiveness.
In the beginning it was all about how I could leave the marriage for a new life with my morals intact, putting my kids' needs above all, and ensuring that what would come out on the other end would be better than the state of affairs we were all living in. You have become more than my divorce attorney as I have you as "Big Brother, Stephen" in my phone contacts. You have always had my back since the beginning, and the trust I have with you cannot be duplicated again in my life. It has been said, "That God will never leave me. When I get in trouble or need help, God will help or send someone to help me." I am without doubts that God sent you to us!"
"Laura & Steve, you have my sincerest thanks for all that you do.
Dear Laura & Steve, I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the hard work and dedication you and your firm have committed to my case over the years. As frustrating as the issues I've had to contend with, I've always felt confident in the solutions we've been able to work toward. No one gets married with the expectation of getting a divorce, but it happens.
When I initially selected an attorney to represent me, I trusted my situation to who I believed at the time to be an expert who would advocate for me as a father. Though he probably did a fair job under what would have been routine circumstances, my situation was less than routine. It wasn't long after that I discovered holes in agreement language, broad unenforceable gray areas and the fact I was left with little recourse in important areas regarding my children.
This is when I contacted Plog & Stein, P.C. My first contact was with Laura. We discussed my case, and whether or not there was a fit in representing me. Her professionalism and immediate grasp of my situation instilled a sense of confidence where I knew in an instant these folks could help me. When I met with Steve to define my case objectives, I was blown away with the depth of experience and realistic expectations he would map out in moving forward. This was a very different experience for me compared to my first attorney. Steve worked very hard to clean up previous agreement language, turn gray areas into mutually agreeable expectations and help me have more meaningful time with my children.
I have continued working with Plog & Stein, P.C. over the years as they have never failed to professionally represent me and my family. As my children have grown, they have provided sound advice and excellent representation in just about every legal, family law situation a person would never hope to have to go through.
In offering a recommendation, I would profoundly state their firm has guided me and represented the best interests of my family every step of the way! If you are looking for a family law firm that has the experience and professionalism to help you through a divorce, I believe you would be hard pressed to find a better firm than Plog & Stein. In closing, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the gratitude I also have for Sarah's help and the friendly assistance the rest of the office staff have provided. Laura & Steve, you have my sincerest thanks for all that you do."
