Posted by a Business client
The majority partner in my business attempted to shut me out of the business. After my first vacation in four years, I came back to a locked office door and a response that our relationship "needed to change." I told my business partner that changing the locks on the door meant that we had no relationship. Steve made sure to understand the intricacies of my case, and felt confident that we had a strong case as a trial date was set. The other side suggested mediation, which we did, and we settled before trial. I've heard that it's a good settlement if both sides are unhappy, but I think I was more happy than the other side -- so I think I came out a little ahead.
Overall, I'm very happy with how Steve handled my case and would use him again in a heartbeat.

My company has worked with Stephen for nearly a decade. His expertise in business law is exceptional. We have utilized Stephen for both business litigation and contractual agreements. In both areas he has proven to be an invaluable resource.

It is simple, when dealing with lawyers over the past 20 years, it is hard to find one that can explain what and why we handle customers a certain way. As a business man you may get hard headed like I am, and want to do things that would not do well for yourself in business if take certain actions. Steve is able to negotiate and or guide me to do what will be in the best interest of my company, without causing a lot of litigation. Long and short, in all the time I have been in business Steve has been the most responsive and helpful attorney I have ever had. Easy to talk with, good to explain, and great guidance with our legal/business strategy.
