Steve is the most organized, detailed, and knowledgeable attorney that I have ever worked with. I had a case with a details that made it one of a kind from anything he had seen over his years of practice. He handled everything superbly with a better than expected outcome. Steve is highly, highly recommended.


Very kind and knowledgeable. Steve was also very accessible, and willing to take time to answer any and all questions we had during our transaction, which made us feel that we were important to him, and not just another number. It was, at times, a very scary situation for us, as we had never dealt with a lawsuit, but Steve was always willing to take time to calmly explain the procedures to us, and led us through this, as if he had nothing else to do, and we appreciated that so much.
