Stephen Montolvo is all about money. Initially he was used when my ex prevented our son from getting necessary counseling and for this I am grateful.

However, it became an agenda for my ex who shares custody with me to use this as an opportunity to be used against me instead.

My ex, without my knowledge was paying this attorney to conduct ongoing and secret meetings with our son during his timeshare, manipulating our son what to say and not say to this attorney before each and every meeting.

Finally, after months and months of these secret meetings, I got a huge bill presented by my ex for services by Stephen. When we went to court a short time later, my ex surprised me with this attorney showing up in court to testify on behalf of our son supposedly wanting to live more with his father.

We pointed out to the court the fact that my ex never disclosed these private, secret meetings and asked the court to dismiss this attorney for these reasons. The court dismissed Stephen Montolvo and he never returned back into the case.

Steve Montalvo was recommended to me by a former BAR Association President. He is an incredible attorney and I highly respect him. My child's father is heavily connected in the legal community which has necessitated my retaining counsel for the duration of our child custody relationship. Steve has always been available and understanding of the nature of my case. His billing is prudent and I am confident that he will continue to represent our best interests for many years to come.

Steve Montalvo comes across as an ethical and trustworthy attorney don't believe it. He is only it in for the money, I agree with all the negative reviews above don't trust that he is looking out for your children more people should be aware of how truly unethical Montalvo really is

If you are reading this review you can stop searching for a Family Law Attorney. I went through the whole phone book and online for San Francisco/ Peninsula and spoke to various law offices and attorney's up to the most expensive one's. Finally, I was lucky enough to come across Mr. Bruening. He is very professional, attentative, and based on his experience can handle any case. Mine was not only heated, but had past history and I came out a total winner!!! He really knows his line of work and also really cares unlike those attorney's, who only seem interested in how much money they can get out of you.

Steve is an excellent attorney and highly respected by the judges in San Mateo county. He always has the children's best interest in mind. I am a very happy client.

Linda B I'm, fully aware of the law and that the Judges make the "final" decision. However, as an attorney, Steve has an "Ethical" uphold according to the State Bar of California. Steve took on a client that many San Mateo County attorney's refuse to have anything to do with and the fact of that being his client is a known liar and thief in San Mateo County! I have been contacted by the press recently and with documentation in hand will prove that Steve Montalvo could care less about family law. The only reason why Steve practices law is to make MONEY!

It's funny that not one of the negative reviews are from Steve's actual clients but from unhappy parents/spouses who were upset with rulings about custody or support. It is not the opposing attorney who makes those decisions but the court based on the law and expert opinion. Sounds like you all just need someone to blame instead of taking responsibility. Steve is an excellent, well respected attorney who serves his clients and their children's interests with passion and integrity. I should know because I am an actual client.

I agree with Bottom Feeding Scum Bag. Steve will lie to a judge's face, he lacks any and all ethics. He is all about money. He doesn't care how the children are impacted. He has no backbone to stand up to his own clients, no matter how unethical the situation. That is, as long as they are paying the bills. He is only hurting the children. As a father, you would think he would have more compassion.

Several years ago Mr Montalvo assisted me in a divorce and after because of the great, professional treatment I received I referred my Dad to his office.

Mr Montalvo was never anything but fair and professional and gave me the assistance needed to get through the divorce.

I will always recommend this office.

Stephen Montalvo is a manipulative, professional liar, who without any conscious for fairness and a child's best interest, will provide deceptive and manipulative schemes to delay, block, deceive, and obstruct the child's best interest.
