  • Nathaniel C Fick

    Steve was a law school classmate years ago, and one of the smartest and nicest guys in the class. To this day I remember his frankness and practical approach to getting things done. With that, and his national recognition of AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell, I endorse him and salute him for what I am rather sure is solid legal advice to folks in the community.
