    Steve is an exceptionally talented and highly ethical criminal defense lawyer with extensive experience and credibility in the PA state county courts. I have had the pleasure of referring numerous clients to him, all of whom have given me nothing but the highest praise in their feedback about Steve, the quality of his work, and the care and professionalism with which he has treated them. No matter what time of the day or night I call him, Steve is extremely responsive and ready to help. Working with him is one of the pleasures of my practice.
