Review Stephen Townsend

About Me

Before becoming an attorney, I spent over ten years providing litigation support for plaintiffs in civil trial litigation. During that time, I worked to prepare and present cases for trials throughout the United States. I traveled the country standing side-by-side with clients and the attorneys fighting for them. I got to see first-hand the positive impact that plaintiff trial attorneys have on peoples’ lives. I have seen the effect of litigation on bringing about safety reforms within corporations and industries. It was very inspirational to me and was the motivation behind a career shift to becoming an advocate for people who have suffered harm or loss.
