“With so many attorneys from which to choose, a client needs someone he or she will want to work with and whom they trust and respect. Only an experienced attorney with knowledge of both the law and the way your jurisdiction is handling certain issues is in the right position to counsel and guide you along.” – Steven
Steven K. Brumer practices family law and handles bankruptcy law, trusts and estates at Fleischer & Ravreby. Prior to joining the firm, he worked in private practice, held a real estate broker’s license, served as general counsel to several real estate and mortgage companies, and operated his own bankruptcy and estate law practice in downtown San Diego.
Brumer is one of a handful of attorneys with a specialized post-graduate Master of Law degree (LL.M.) in taxation. This course of study focuses on tax planning, analysis, and litigation and has proven invaluable in Steven’s counsel to clients as real estate, income, and wealth transfer tax issues arise in the context of family law, bankruptcy and trusts and estates. Brumer’s specialty is representing clients in matters that crossover among his areas of expertise and he serves as a resource to the other attorneys in the firm when issues relating to bankruptcy and trusts and estates arise. He is a persuasive and meticulous writer and oral advocate.
