I have over 30 years’ experience in the family services and legal fields, including representing clients in divorce, collaborative divorce, and other family law cases; and representing and advising clients regarding complex business, tax and real estate issues; and my former work as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist focusing on work with children, families and couples.

My practice now focuses on helping families in divorce and estate disputes resolve their matters outside court, without damaging litigation, through collaborative law or mediation; and estate planning for clients that focuses not only on the tax law issues, but also on planning that helps address and prevent the sources of future family conflict when a loved one becomes ill or passes away; helps be sure your children will be cared for as you wish in the event of your incapacity or death; and that seeks to help you leave for your family not only your financial assets, but also the life lessons and values that are important to you.

A family or estate matter often involves a wide range of sometimes complicated issues, and a wide-ranging  background is often helpful.  I received my J.D. degree from the University of Chicago in 1985, M.Ed. and Ed.S. degrees from the University of Florida in 1991, and LL.M (Master of Laws in Taxation) from the University of Florida in 1999.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Attorney Steven Blumenthal and his law firm were eager to help me settle a complicated child support case. Steven made every effort to keep me involved and informed of all the options available and the possible outcomes. He took my predicament seriously and made every effort to resolve it in the best interest of the children. I will recommend Steven to all my friends in South Florida looking for a family law attorney. A.R.

★★★★★
Steven Blumenthal did OUTSTANDING representation for me. I had to move to Texas so he represented me from FLORIDA, for the entire length of my divorce. I didn't have the luxury of meeting in person for our discussions/reviews of our case, but Steve was ALWAYS 10 steps ahead of me, and on point with every concern. Unlike other attorneys where they have paralegals handle bulk of gathering information, Steve Blumenthal gathered all information himself, so never was there any confusion or loss of data...
