    I have worked with Steve on many matters. He is one of the most intelligent attorneys I know. I am always impressed by his knowledge of many areas of law and incredible attention to detail in all of them. His many years of experience have given him the ability to quickly hone in on issues and identify the likely solutions. I absolutely endorse Steve.
