  • Robert David Armstrong

    Steve is an excellent lawyer. He is very knowledgeable regarding employment law, and gives good, honest, practical advice to his clients. His straight-forward no-nonsense approach has helped him negotiate many good results for his clients, and his methodical, exact preparation for trial has won difficult cases as well. I highly recommend him for those needing help in employment matters.

  • Stanley P. Santire

    Based on extensive experience with Steve Petrou, I strongly endorse him. I have worked with Steve in several trials and on appeal, both State and Federal courts. Most of the cases have been employment law. When I team up with a lawyer I need the confidence that he is competent, trustworthy and ethical. Steve has provided this to me as litigation co-counsel and for the clients we have served. In addition to his work for clients, Steve enhances the legal profession through participation in professional organizations. .
