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.
I hired Steve to defend my son when he was charged with distribution of LSD to an undercover police officer. My son had never been in trouble, we had no idea what to do. Steve held our hand the whole time. He was constantly updating us and always made himself available. Phone calls were returned the same day, and the result of the case was that its completely off my sons record.
I hired Steve after I was charged with a felony for identity theft. I met with all of the attorneys rated a "10" on Avvo, and just from my first appointment I felt like Steve was the only one who deserved it. He didn't sugar coat things or try and scare me into hiring him, rather, he was straight forward and told me the problems I was facing, as well as the good things about my case. He laid out a very specific plan of what he would do, and after I hired him, he followed that plan. He did everything he told me he would. He also got my case dismissed and then my record sealed. I could not be more pleased with his work. Highly recommended.
I never thought I would be in the position where I would need an attorney, but I made some mistakes and found myself interviewing everyone in Colorado Springs. I'm in the Army, and a DUI conviction would literally cost me my career. Another soldier recommended I call Steve, and I'm so thankful I did. He won my license case, and the court results were so much better than I could have imagined. I ended up with a 4 point speeding conviction after being charged with a DUI. I recommend Steve to anyone looking for an attorney.
I would emphatically recommend Steve. After meeting with a total of 7 attorneys Steve was hands down the best attorney in town. At the first appointment, he went over a number of different scenarios, explained the entire process, and put my fears to rest. The appointment wasn't rushed, he spent over an hour with me. He was also the last attorney I met with, so I went in thinking I had already been told everything about a dui charge. I learned more from meeting with him then all 6 other lawyers together. I had never been charged with a crime and was terrified. After leaving his office I felt so much better. One attorney wanted to charge me $9000.00, but just wanted to talk about my college football team, then tell me I was probably going to jail. Steve ended up getting me a deferred sentence, which means I won't have a conviction on my record. I didn't realize that I had gotten such a good outcome until we went to sentencing and the judge was apprehensive to accept the plea because he said that with a .198 BAC, he normally wouldn't accept that offer and that my attorney had done an exceptional job. Steve talked the judge into accepting it. Throughout the process my calls were immediately returned, he kept me informed and we met regularly. I would never hire anyone else. Call him first, don't waste your time with the other guys.
I would emphatically recommend Steve. My case came out so much better than I ever would have guessed. On my first meeting with him, prior to having my alcohol level, he laid out various scenarios about what we would do in differing situations. Sure enough, he did exactly what he said he would, only better. He lived up to every expectation. What really solidified my opinion was one morning in Court. I arrived about 30 minutes early and watched what was happening in to every other case. It seemed like everyone got the same deal regardless of the attorney, even other attorneys I had interviewed were just parading their clients up to the front and pleading guilty. Steve got to court and the Judge promptly called my case. Steve commanded the courtroom, explaining for the prosecutor why my DUI case was being pled down to a simple speeding ticket. The Judge didn't bat an eye and accepted the plea (which I found out later is not normally allowed). After we were done as we were walking away, the Judge asked Steve about his baby, it was very clear to me that Steve is well liked and very well respected by everyone at the courthouse. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who would listen.
Steve explained the legal asspects of my case in terms I could understand. He was thorough and displayed excellent knowledge of the law. In addition, he was knowledgable about the local ins and outs...he kept my "in the know" which minimized my concerns. If you want a fair shake, he is the man to get it for you.
Highly recommended. I was scared out of my mind, Steve put me at ease right away. The outcome of my case was better than I thought it would be. He kept me I the loop the whole time and always returned my calls. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this firm.
