  • Blaine Alexander Norris

    Stephen has earned the right to receive my highest endorsement possible. I've worked along side him on many, many business matters over 13 years, and I have seen first hand the intelligence, creativity, and solution oriented approach he brings to the table. He is a great negotiator and problem solver. He has worked on extremely complicated and sophisticated legal matters all over the state, country, and some internationally. He can be trusted with the most significant of business and estate planning needs. He's got my highest endorsement.
