    Steve and I have gotten to know each other over the years as we teach other lawyers how to handle trucking cases at seminars across the country. There is no question that Steve is extremely sharp, competent, and a force to be reconed with in a trucking case. I have not hesitated to recommend him to clients and other lawyers.
