Click to report rating    4/25/14   5     5     5     5     5   I hired Stuard Fishman after I tried to do my divorce myself. “Not a good Idea when going through a sticky divorce”. Stuart is a very personable guy who keeps you informed every step of the way. He was phenomenal with getting me what was rightfully mine. Stuart and his staff are hardworking, very trustworthy and knowledgeable when it comes to the law. I highly recommend his firm. J.Munroe RID: 135897

Click to report rating    2/4/13   5     4     5     5     5   I had a long dragged out divorce and issues with past due child support Mr. Fishman worked with me for the past 10 years and never showed an ounce of disregard for the importance of my case. I was very satisfied with the work he did on my case. RID: 99885

Click to report rating    1/20/12   1     1     1     1     1   On January 15, 2012 - the storage unit for the Law Offices of Stuart Fishman was auctioned off at a public auction. The unit was filled with boxes and boxes of client confidential files, private information, medical records, and on and on. Stuart Fishman did not protect his clients or former clients personal and confidential information. RID: 62294

Click to report rating    10/24/11   5     4     4     5     4   I have read the read the negative reviews, but I will say my experience has been very positive. Stuart has your best interest at hand and is very good at what he does. He is straight to the point and in recent spousal support issues did a wonderful job. He made a major problem go away with a very reasonable rate in a time effective manner. RID: 53876

Click to report rating    10/17/11   1     1     1     1     1   It is hard to believe this man is even an Attorney! He does not respond in a timely manner to phone calls or e-mails and does not seem to check out information completely. His intimedation practice has us looking into filing a complaint with the State Bar of California! RID: 53422

 6/29/11   1     1     1     1     1   I manage a self-storage facility that this law firm has rented a unit at. His firm is in default and the stored items are subject to a lien sale auction. There are countless files of his clients in the unit, and he appears to be completely unconcerned about their unsafe disposal and continues to refuse to pay his bill. If I were a client of his, I would be VERY worried that my confidential files are so haphazardly stored, and ill-cared for. If YOU are a customer of his, you should call his office immediately and ask why your confidential files are going to be auctioned off for non-payment of rent. Point them to this review. RID: 47809

 6/4/11   5     5     5     5     5   "My child custody matter was possibly the most contentious and highly litigated in Santa Clara County history. Terrifying issues and allegations such as "interstate child move-aways" and "parental alienation" were continuous. It droned on for 10 years and was like fighting a war. But then finally, 7 years ago, everything changed because I hired Stuart Fishman. Mr. Fishman took an impossible case, got me immediate visitation, and worked miracles which ultimately resulted in me getting my son back full legal and physical custody. Mr. Fishman even won my not having to pay child support while I was getting back on my feet again, and in pursuing child support owed by my ex. He also went above and beyond by investigating and finding money my ex had been hiding, and informed the D.A. Mr. Fishman never gave up and fought vigorously every step of the way, at the same time not overcharging. Stuart cared about my son.

Click to report rating    3/4/11   5     5     5     5     5   I have had nothing but solid interactions with Stuart and his staff. To say that my case has been straightforward would be a lie. There has been inter-state and in same cases cause to review international law in the lunacy that is my case. Stuart and his office have been the shield my family has needed to protect us from the walking psychosis that is my ex-wife. RID: 42015

Click to report rating    8/24/10   1     1     1     1     1   Stuart gives advice against court orders then makes you cop a guilty plea. Stay away, FAR AWAY! I followed his advice and it got me convicted of CONTEMPT! Now I will be taking him to fee arbitration to dispute his legal fees for that advice. This guy should be disbarred! He is there to take your money but never responds to emails or returns phone calls. I have fired his as my lawyer and my new lawyer is appalled at what he did, so am I. RID: 33760

     6/4/10   2     1     1     1     1   Honestly, this guy should be disbarred!! He ignored several filings by ex-wife's attorney that resulted in costing me many tens of thousands of $. He always blames things on his office staff (he has one assistant). In the course of about 5 months, he had gone through 3 different assistants. Honestly, your better off going it alone, at elast then you'll get timely copies of notices and other filings which require your response. I cannot give him any kind of a high score for tenacity because he basically quit (without bothering to tell me so) after the trial was finished, but before all the wrangling over pensions, QDROs and attorneys fees had been completed. I would tell you he was a clown, but that would be too disrespectful to clowns. He was in relatively steady contact for about a 4 week period leading up to the trial, but after that, never returned a call, email or letter. (However, his bill continued to grow - perhaps he was charging me for thinking about calling me.) RID: 30972

     6/3/10   1     1     1     1     1   This is a terrible lawyer he showed up 30 minutes later for our first meeting, then he showed up to court and forgot everything about my case after paying him for 5 hours to research it. After all of that the 2nd court date he didn't even show up and I had to reschedule my court date out 30 more days. This guy is an idiot and has no business practicing law, DO NOT GIVE THIS GUY YOUR MONEY STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!! There is a reason this guy has so many bad reviews, I wish I found this site before hiring him I just wasted my money... RID: 30939

     2/1/10   1     1     1     1     1   I was referred to this attorney by a friend. The original est. of time was approx 6mons to a year to resolve an issue. I am working on two years trying to get this guy to finish what he has started. I have made numerous attempts to speak with him directly only to be "handled" by his Administrator. I made an apointment to speak with him several times only to show up and he be unexpectantly "away" from the office. Time is running out and I have contacted the BAR association and anyone that is having issues with this attorney should be doing the same thing at this point. don't waste your time and efforts on trying to "salvage" the client-attorney relationship at this point. I have turned numerous people away from him at this point, he aparently is too busy to handle the clients he already has to be taking on any additional requests. RID: 26755

     7/8/09   2     1     1     2     1   Completely incompetent and unethical. He requires payment in advance and then doesnt complete the job fully. The forms and documents I received from his office were riddled with errors - not misspellings - wrong dates, inaccurate account of case details. RID: 19910

     4/25/08   1     1     1     1     1   He is only there for the money. Doesn't care about anything else but the pay check. SO if you are looking to spend a lot of monsy and doesn't care about your needs then he is great for the job! RID: 9321

Click to report rating    10/20/06   5     2     1     2     2   Rarely responds to communication. Will tell you someone else something while they will deny it, which in a court case can be very traumatic. RID: 2142
