  • Alejandro Aguirre Montelongo

    I have worked with Steve on several criminal matters, both state and federal. He is a mentor and is highly respected by colleagues, judges and prosecutors alike. His compassionate approach to zealous advocacy makes him a very effective trial lawyer. He is a litigator and is willing to present his clients' cases to a jury, an arena in which he excels. More often, however, he gets results through his unparalleled negotiation skills.

  • Carlos Yarot Montoya

    Steve Toland's years of experience in federal and state criminal cases are what separate him from other lawyers. He is a wonderful mentor to other attorneys and is an asset to the Travis County legal community. I highly endorse Steve because he is an excellent advocate and litigator.
