“Divorce is a painful and lonely thing to go thru. Having Steven Wilen as my divorce attorney put my mind at ease and helped me to continue to perform at a high level on the field because things off the field were being taken care of.”
– Lomas Brown, Detroit Lions

Horace Greeley once said, “Fame is a vapor; popularity is a mistake; riches take wings and fly away; all that endures is character.” Steve Wilen has been a friend for four decades and is the epitome of Greeley’s summation of the perfect person: What one does repeatedly is what one becomes, and that is what will eventually be noticed by others.

I know Steve to be a man of strong character, unwavering truth, and unquestionable veracity. I’ve referred clients to him due to his passionate and caring nature, honesty, and uncompromising integrity. When I count my blessings, I count Steve Wilen twice, for he can be trusted to be the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

There are many great, famous and successful people in this world, but what truly constitutes how great, famous and successful a person is, are the altruistic gifts and contributions they make to their fellow man. With Steve, Mankind is in resting in good hands. He will give you 100%, of that I can assure you.
– Thomas Seabron, U of M and San Fransisco 49ers.

Steven Wilen guided me through a long, complicated divorce. He was there for me and my sons every step of the way, listening, informing me of next steps, answering me promptly on all matters with honesty. If he did not know something, he found someone who did, and he is extremely well connected in his profession. I had, and still do have the utmost respect and confidence in Steven as an attorney and as a friend. I highly recommend him!
