"Worked with Steve for various business related projects and he was timely, thorough, and effective. Highly recommend for real estate or general business needs!"
"I recently had the misfortune of needing a criminal defense attorney and had the good fortune of finding Steve Rakow! I did an online search and didn't want a large law firm I wanted a more personal approach and Steve is a Vet too. Steve was very personable, knowledgeable, efficient, respectful, kind and caring. He was very helpful and took the time needed to answer questions. He made a horrible experience bearable and it was very comforting to have him standing beside me. I highly recommend Steve Rakow to anyone in need of an attorney. I can't thank him enough for his help."
"Attorney Steven W Rakow demonstrated absolute integrity while helping me challenge a fraudulent invoice and make counter claims. Steve is more than just a great lawyer, he has extensive experience in the home building profession and has owned several business. His unique background enabled him to quickly get to the bottom of issues I was having with a construction manager I had hired. His recommendations and the demand letter he sent gave me the confidence necessary to move forward with warranty claims despite the invoice dispute. While still not completely resolved, we have won several battles along the way due to Steve's excellent counsel. Efficiency is important when you require legal support and I always felt that Steve was considering the cost of his effort and working in my best interest. You want him on your side. My only regret is not getting him involved sooner!"
