Do not hire him. He charged me an obscene amount of money and I ended up having to drop him as my attorney and go through a public defender. The public defender did more work then he did for free.. Complete waste of my money.
I have known Mr. Sessa for 18 years. He has handled criminal cases for me and he is always swift, professional and ultimately got my cases dismissed. He tells it to you like it is. He lets you know your worst day in court and explains the process to you thoroughly. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Do not hire this lawyer. Sessa did nothing to defend me in court. He took thousands of dollars and presented no defense, interviewed no witnesses, got no depositions, presented none of the evidence that I handed him because he did not bother to get it himself. He left me broke, walked with my money, and then tried to put a lien on everything I owned because I refused to pay him to refile my case after total strangers who were in the courtroom, the police officer that did the report on my accident (which I had to get and take to him because he did not take the time to get it), and even the presiding judge told him to do so. His answer was "Yes, Your Honor." and then tried to charge me thousands more to redo my case. Run away as fast as you can if someone suggests you hire him or anyone associated with him. The only interest he and his firm have is in the money he will get BEFORE he presents your case. You do the legwork for him and he does nothing once he gets to court. I wish someone would investigate this so-called lawyer. I am reporting him to the Bar.
Do not let his act fool you be comes off as being a tough lawyer that will fight for you when he is collecting a retainer but don't be fooled. He mis handled two of my cases and I was truly worse off by using him not to mention the outrageous amount of money I wasted. The second case he was handling so poorly in court that I actually took over and got what I wanted on my own. Steve tried to walk out of court and the judge yelled at him. Total joke
Steven Sessa appears nice, and he did file a lot of paperwork on my behalf, but he charged an obscene amount of money for his services, and I ended getting what I would have gotten with a public defender. He also does not respond well to phone calls and emails.
