The best jp in new hampshire
We are so incredibly glad that we selected Steven to officiate our wedding. He met with us a few weeks before the wedding so that he could get to know us and our story a little bit. We felt comfortable with Steven immediately. He is witty and personable, just a fun guy to be around. He also has great empathy and skill, and the vows he prepared for us exceeded our expectations. Because of Steven, our exchange of vows was deeply personal and meaningful. He is an extremely gifted JP, and any couple would be lucky to have him perform their ceremony.Sent on 01/05/2019

Steven helped my wife and I out of a jam last minute and in short time was still able to pull off a creative joke we played on the wedding party. He was easy to reach and timely. - Josh and Ali

Fantastic Justice of the Peace!
Steven Dembow was a phenomenal Justice of the Peace and we were thrilled to have him with us on our wedding day. Steve went above and beyond in all aspects as our officiant, from accompanying us to City Hall to obtain our marriage certificate, to being just an overall pleasure to work with the entire time. Steve was prompt in his responsiveness and in getting us drafts of our wedding ceremony, and was extremely helpful throughout our decision process of what to include in our ceremony. His many years of experience with all kinds of ceremonies meant he could provide us with examples and advice on how to make our day the absolute best it could be. I can't recommend Steven Dembow enough as a Justice of the Peace and hope you decide to work with him for your wedding too!
