We appreciate your patience and understanding as we limit contact with people during social distancing but continue to work during limited hours to still assist those in need.

A Message from the Law Offices of Steven B. Chroman, P.C.

Due to the recent developments regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) with the Courthouses in our surrounding areas, such as Ventura, Palmdale, Orange County, and the Los Angeles Superior Court, we would like to provide information regarding the effect this will have on our office and the operations with the Courthouses.

As always, we will continuously monitor the situation and update as needed with instructions on this very fluid circumstance. We will constantly monitor the situation to protect our clients and members of this firm and continue to work diligently to find solutions for our clients and keep you informed of developments.

Currently, the Los Angeles Superior Courts are recommending at-risk individuals or anyone feeling sick, to stay home. Self-help centers have been closed and the Court is closed to the public until March 19th. All civil and criminal trials are suspended until April 16th. There is an order to continue all non-emergency matters for 30-days. The Court is working to extend continuances when appropriate and offer alternatives to Court appearances. The Court is open for emergency and essential matters only. For more information regarding the Los Angeles Superior Courts, please visit: https://www.lacourt.org.

The Ventura Superior Court will be closed from Monday, March 16th, and re-open with limited operations on Thursday, March 20th. For more information regarding the Los Angeles Superior Courts, please visit: https://www.ventura.courts.ca.gov.

During this time, for the health and safety of our clients and staff, we kindly ask clients and other professionals to communicate via e-mail or telephone. Please avoid coming into our office as we are following the CDC recommendations of social distancing. We will work together to transition meetings to tele-conferences or other virtual alternatives. Additionally, whenever possible we also encourage the use of e-signatures and digital methods of sending or returning documents to help expedite legal services while limiting face-to-face interactions.

We understand these are trying time and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work to provide legal services while protecting our clients and staff’s well-being. Please know that our office is still working on matters and will continue to work with all current and potential clients during this time.

Stay safe and be well,

Steven B. Chroman, Esq.

“Yes, you will face challenges, but we will help you learn, and overcome those challenges, one by one. Proper preparation will be the key to achieving the best outcome in your case.” ~Steven B. Chroman



At the Law Office of Steven B. Chroman, P. C., you will find we maintain a focused practice to ensure your personalized attention.  Your personal relationship between a lawyer and client is crucial to the successful outcome of the case, maintaining focus on the best interests of the family as a whole.  At a larger firm, a significant amount of the work is performed by paralegal staff, with little contact with the actual attorneys.  Your attorney at the Law Office of Steven B. Chroman, P. C. will be able to offer personal attention to each and every case.  In addition to our expert legal counseling, our department will also complete all necessary forms, assist our clients in the collection of essential documentation and information, and attend any conferences or hearings with our clients.

~”Mr. Chroman always provided needed perspective, reality checks and sound advice”… MC, Stevenson Ranch

We are also able to give you an accurate and honest assessment of your case and we believe strongly in keeping our clients apprised of the benefits to be gained in relation to the amount of attorney’s fees you will incur in following a certain course of action.  Our goal is to help you resolve the situation you are in with as little expense and emotional turmoil as possible.  We will advise you of your options, make a recommendation, but the choice is ultimately yours.

 ~”It was clear that they always had my best interests firmly at heart…” GS, Santa Clarita


Being an active member of the community is important to help raise awareness and assist those that may not be aware of their options. Giving people the tools they need to make informed decisions is key in any situation. Mr. Chroman is an active member of many community groups and often times a speaker or holds workshops to support the community in any way he is able. Our office objective is to limit chaos and increase knowledge to alleviate issues not only in the present moment but to share the tools one would need for a long-term understanding on how to handle day-to-day issues independently.


 ~”Please forgive me for not reaching out to you sooner to thank you for your presentation to the Zonta LifeForward participants. As was evident during the session, you really know and understand our audience and, in fact, have worked with several. This made the workshop especially meaningful as you were able to touch on their exact needs. Thank you.

And, thank you for donating your honorarium back to Zonta. This will allow us to do additional workshops as we continue to try to meet the needs of women in the Santa Clarita Valley.” Peggy Edwards, LifeForward Co-Chair. Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley
