I should start off by saying, I've never been in trouble before, but I made a horrible mistake and got in a car when I shouldn't have. I thought the DA's office would consider my past and I could take care of the problem myself. However, when I went to my first court date and sat down in a little office, alone with a DA, I felt powerless and bullied, it became apparent that I needed someone on my side, at least to guide me through the case. I called about 6 attorney's, all of whom claim to specialize in DUI. 4 of them called me back, and I ended up meeting with 3 of them. One attorney wanted $9,000.00, which I thought was very high. I ended up meeting with Steve last, but after talking to the other 2 attorneys, Steve was a breath of fresh air. When I got to Steve's office, he was meeting with another client, but when they came out, I overhead Steve ask the gentleman how a recent family vacation went. I was struck by the fact that he knew details about this man's life like that, I got the impression that he wasn't trying to rush the guy out the door to get on with his next appointment, but rather, he was taking the time to learn about his clients life. When I sat down with him and explained my case, he walked me through the process, both what could happen to my license and what could happen at court. When I asked him what would happen to me, he made no guarantees, but told me different possible outcomes that could happen, this was in contrast to the 2 other attorneys I met with, both guaranteed me outcomes, but surprisingly the both promised different outcomes, but sounded to good to be true. Steve said he couldn't do that, he hadn't seen the police reports and would need to read those before telling me what the likely outcome was. I immediately could tell I could trust him, he wasn't going to make me promises that sounded to good to be true so I'd hire him, but told me the truth from the beginning. His price seemed very reasonable and after talking to me wife, I hired him. Throughout my case, I always knew what was happening. I could always log onto his computer system to see all of the documents filed, police reports, court dates and emails. My calls were always returned. The one phone call that he didn't return the same day, he was in trial on another case and had his paralegal Emily call me with the answer. Emily told me Steve was in trial and she had asked him my question, but told me he'd call me in the morning, to make sure my question was answered. Sure enough, first thing in the morning Steve called and apologized for taking so long to get back to me. It hasn't even been a day and he had already answered me. The entire experience was better than I thought it would be. The outcome was better than I expected and I was treated with respect throughout. Steve becomes your friend during the case, but what impressed me the most and caused me to write this was that my case ended in March. This past week I got an email from him checking in on me and making sure I didn't have any questions and everything I needed to do was getting done. Steve really exceeded my expectations, he goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Steve, it's obvious to me that he's elite in his field, it's really the little things that make the difference. Thank you Steve.

Steve got my case dismissed before it was even in court. I was arrested, booked into jail and bonded out. They set my first court date for two weeks after I bonded out, and after meeting with and researching several attorneys, I hired Steve. He had ideas and thought of things no one else did, and from the day I hired him, to my first court date, he had 10 days. He met with the DA, scheduled a polygraph and accompanied me to it, he and an investigator meet with all the witnesses and put together a very good defense. When he and I met with the DA the second time, two days before court, the DA agreed not to file any charges, the case was dismissed. Steve's one of those attorneys that you normally don't find in my experience. He did everything he said he would and I felt like he actually cared about me. I would never hire anyone else.

I hired Steve to represent me on a DUI that was complicated by my prior mistakes. Needless to say, I was facing significant consequences and after meeting with the DA, I knew I needed help. I was referred to Steve and I'm so glad I was. My case was completely dismissed. He and Emily are so nice, they always returned calls, and always kept me up to date. I was also able to login to a website where I could see everything in my case, court dates, and everything being done. First class operation.

I decided to choose Steven Rodemer to represent me in my D.V. case. I was falsely accused of many different actions by my ex girlfriend and her sister. I felt like I was looked at as guilty before I even got the chance to explain my side of the story. My stress levels were through the roof to the point I was losing sleep and not eating. Both girls were fighting for a permanent restraining order against me. This is when Steven came in the picture. Steven explained the entire process to me and was very detailed about his descriptions. Immediately my stress levels were decreasing from the reassurance of this very well educated man. He is very professional and yet is so easy to talk to, Steven actually cares about his clients. In the end of my case everything went my way thanks for the back-up of Steven Rodemer. Trust me, if you're stressed out about your case and you're looking for the right attorney to back you up, stop looking right now because you found your best option. You will NOT regret taking Steven for your case.

I was referred to Steve for my DUI by a friend who had been charged with a domestic violence case, which Steve handled. Everything she said about him was spot on. He worked hard on my case, got a result that exceeded my expectation, but more than that, he was always there to listen, and talk to, even when I just wanted to vent about my situation. He didn't hurry me along, and I always felt that he had time for me and genuinely cared. We had one office appointment, that lasted for an hour, and most of it was spent talking about school and my job, and finding out about me. I said at one point, "this doesn't matter in my case, right?" and he responded by telling me that it didn't, but he wanted to find out about my career and school so that he was sure our goals alligned and there wasn't an issue he didn't know about, like what I want to do in the future. I paid a flat fee, so its not like he was trying to bilk me for fees, and it was reassuring to know he cared. I just don't think you find that kind of lawyer everyday. I feel like there's a reason clients refer cases to him, and I'm very glad I found him.

Steve did everything I could have asked and more. The outcome of my case was better then I could have hoped for, because he just kept fighting. We'd go to court and he'd say "don't take this yet, we can do better", and he did. It would have been really easy for him to tell me to take an offer as soon as the DA got rid of the jail, but he didn't. I'm so thankful I found him.

I was charged with a DUI while driving home from a study group, where I had a glass of wine. The cop said he smelled alcohol and wanted me to do an alcohol test. I was obviously upset, and the cop said I wasn't cooperating, so gave me a refusal. I met with 6 attorneys over two days. After meeting Steve, I knew instantly that he was who I should hire. First of all, and this may be trivial, but when I would mention to other attorneys who I was meeting with, they all bad mouthed each other. Except for Steve, it was clear he was confident, and not insecure. I know that's not a big deal, but it was something I picked up on. After I hired Steve, his investigator contacted everyone at my study group, who all confirmed I had only had one glass of wine. Steve won my DMV hearing, so I kept my license, and happily, my case was dismissed yesterday. Steve is kind and patient, but more than anything, he really knows what he's doing and is very smart. I would really recommend Steve. He did a great job for me.

I would highly recommend Steve. He handled a DV case for me and it was dismissed within 2 weeks of hiring him. Nothing more needs to be said

Steve is the kind of attorney who you want on your side. I was charged with a DUI while sitting in my car on the side of the road with the keys in my pocket and the engine off. At one point during my case the DA offered me a deferred sentence. Steve knew I was seriously considering taking the offer, so we sat down to discuss it. Steve heard me out and said, he understood, but he felt like I should go to trial. We did and I won. It would have been much easier to tell me to take the offer and be done, but he didn't. He put the work into my case to get me the best outcome he could. He didn't charge me more to go to trial either.

Steve is a good attorney. I am still employed at my job, I kept my license, and my case was dismissed. There's really not much more I could ask for.
