I have worked with Steven on several matters over the years and he is the consummate professional with unmatched zeal and class. His skill and acumen before the judiciary is proof of his expertise, ability to advocate and his knowledge of the law. Although his confidence and abilities in the courtroom are second to no one, he also shines with peer to peer negotiations and mediation, which serves his clients very well.
