  • Andrew Mark Weisberg

    I have known Steve for many years and handled many cases against him when I was a prosecutor. Steve was always a tough and intelligent opponent. He is also a lawyer of great integrity. He is a good choice for a Joliet criminal defense lawyer.

  • John Paul Ivec

    It is a frightening thing to be charged criminally. The right criminal defense attorney makes all the difference. Knowledge, experience and wisdom are critical in obtaining the best result. In all these areas, Steve excels. What sets Steve apart from other competent Will County defense attorneys, is Steve’s ability to not only obtain that “best result,” but also his commitment to thoroughly communicate with his clients all of the possibilities and choices in their particular case. While no defense attorney can waive a magic wand and make the charges go away, with Steve, the client can rest assured that they will not only receive the best representation, but that they will be fully informed from beginning to end.
