I was fortunate to work with Stephen, Claire and Melissa for my divorce. In a sea of confusion and intimidation that is Family Law - these three people bring clarity, truth and results. Claire is a passionate and extremely knowledgeable legal professional. She is a unique breed and I highly recommend her for any Family Law issue. Stephen and Melissa were excellent at validation and discussing the key issues in the case to find a reasonable resolution. If you have an Family Law matter look no further, this is a special firm that will help you.

I don't know what I would have done without Mr. Durbin. Stephen is truly a master in the courtroom. We had a six day custody trial and everyday he amazed my family and I with his knowledge of the law. He was always honest and upfront with me on my chances of success. He devoted his heart and soul into my case and in the end we were successful in gaining joint custody with my home (father) as primary residence and were also awarded a substantial amount of court costs. Stephen is a great person in and outside of the courtroom and is always there when I need him. I highly recommend Stephen Durbin as a lawyer and as a friend. Thank you Stephen. R.

Anyone who is involved in a divorce knows that everything about it quite literally sucks and we would rather walk on hot coals than go through it. But a good and fair lawyer can make all the difference. Stephen is that lawyer. After a very bad experience with another local area family lawyer, I was highly skeptical of the chances of finding a good one. The search was difficult because there are few reviews online and you just don't know what sort of experience to expect until it is underway and often too late. After interviewing several family lawyers in the area, I chose Durbin and Associates. I got lucky, because it turned out that Stephen and his staff were exactly the right choice. He is fair and straightforward in his case assessment, will give realistic expectations and does not sugar coat or make false promises that can't be delivered on. Stephen works with a realistic view, knows family law very well, and has a tremendous office staff, including a hard working and professional law clerk that will be able to do a lot of the work at a lower billing cost than the lawyers. This is an example of how Stephen will pay close attention to controlling the cost of what is a very expensive process, and he is sensitive to this matter. I will just say that this is not the case with other lawyers, who are only interested in milking as many billable hours as possible. Stephen was very sensitive to the needs of the children and recommended approaches that proved to be successful in getting fair custody arrangements. He and his office staff are responsive - I never had to wait for replies to calls or emails, which went a long way to reducing stress and making me feel that they were taking my case seriously. I could say many other positive things about this family law practice, but it is not necessary. I would recommend Stephen and his team to anyone without hesitation. To be honest, he is not cheap, but quite simply, you get what you pay for, and fewer hours at a higher rate with a good lawyer are better than a lot of hours at a lower rate without results.

Went to the Oakville office and found the lawyer to be a little arrogant didn't seem to care much about what we had to say and never contacted regarding another matter. Really wished I had gone to someone else.

My dealings with Steve were in the realm of business contracts, a number of years before he became pre-eminent in the Family Law field. As I have told others to whom I have recommended Steve, he impressed me greatly with his grasp of the subject, attention to detail, the speed and thoroughness of his work, and his professionalism. A remarkable professional. As the Chairman and CEO of a successful renewables company, I deal with a lot of high-end professionals, and can truly appreciate these qualities. I hope never to require his Family Law services personally, but would use him again for important business contracts in a heartbeat. The point of this comment, in the context of his Family law practise, is that marital situations usually involve significant elements of understanding business, business contracts, and how the mind of a businessperson works. Consequently, I would recommend that any professional, or spouse of a professional, seek his services if required, to take advantage of these strengths, in order to maximize your likelihood of success in your own situation.
