“We have used Steve and his Team for all of our real estate transactions over the last 15+ years. Steve’s knowledge, follow-up, and personality make his firm an easy choice….we wouldn’t even think about going anywhere else.”

Black Diamond Plumbing & Mechanical, Inc.

“Steve English came as a referral to us when we were buying our first home. It was a scary time since we really didn’t know what to expect, but Steve supported us during the entire process. We have since used him for our second home, and it is just really comforting having someone you can trust.”

Dave & Melissa Growney

“Steve has become like family to us….there is no hesitation on who to call when we need an attorney. Whether it was helping us with real estate transactions or drafting our will, Steve was always there to help.”

I simply cannot say enough about Steve English and his staff. They are knowledgeable, ethical and reliable, all while being personable. I know that when I refer my clients to them, they will be taken care of and guided through the home buying/selling process. It's always a comfort knowing they are working alongside me and our clients to produce a smooth and successful closing!

Steve English is one of the most reputable people that you will ever meet. I have known and worked with Steve for many years with my business as a Realtor. My clients appreciate his knowledge and most of all, his quick response to their inquiries. The transactions run smoothly and on a timely manner. He has also worked with my family on personal matters to our great satisfaction. The professionalism of Steve and his staff is exceptional. On a rating of 1-10, he is a 10!

My family has been using Steve English Law firm for well over a decade. Steve is very sharp, quick to the point and always protecting my interests. With super assistant Mary they form a very efficient team that always got things done on time, minimizing my input, saving me time and money all for very reasonable rates. I feel very fortunate to have them on my side.

Kamil Suran, Suran Built

We have been using Steve English as our real estate attorney for more than 20 years. Steve and Mary have always been very professional and have handled every issue that has arisen, and there have been many, with 10 or more closings in that time. Steve is not one to “roll over” for the opposing attorney when a conflict arises, and has always had our back. We really like the way he composes a letter and puts our thoughts on paper. He knows how to get things done in a timely manner, and his fees have always been fair.

I am glad we found him when we did.
