I am profoundly sad today to hear of the passing of Mr Soltis! My heart goes out to his wife & children, I never met but one, his oldest son Stephen but I send my condolences to all of them. Mr Soltis was my divorce attorney back some years ago. I am so sorry to hear of his passing, wish I had known before, I would have attended the funeral. In my biased opinion, I think he was the best attorney in SC! My condolences to his wife & family, my heart goes out to you & may God give you the comfort your heart needs at this time! I just lost my dad last year so I know what you are going through! RIP Mr Soltis, you were a good guy, the world is a sadder place without you in it!

Soltis family -
I am very sorry and sad to hear of Steve's passing. He was a good man and helped me with my career decisions during law school. I always enjoyed catching up with him at the courthouse and appreciated his advice along the way. I will miss him.

Judy and family,
I am deeply saddened to hear about Steve's unexpected passing. I am his cousin, Cherise Cortese, daughter of Geraldine (sister of Marge). I remember Steve and the kids from Chicago, but in 1967 we moved to Phoenix and had little contact after that. Steve and I reconnected on Facebook a few years ago. I was surprised and proud that he had graduated from ASU, also my undergrad alma mater, and went on to become a lawyer. I went on to become medical doctor and my son is a lawyer which was really cool. Neither of us came from affluence, so I consider our life advances as extraordinary. I am very proud of his accomplishments. You are a beautiful lady who is obviously very in love with him and you have a beautiful family. Please accept my condolences and if i can do anything, please contact me.

Soltis Family -

Having practiced law here since the mid-90's alongside your husband/father, let me take the opportunity to remind you what you all already know - Steve was one of the good guys!! Our local legal community and I, personally, are better for having been able to call him both my colleague and friend!
