Steven and his team was fast acting in response to getting my questions answered and diligent on keeping me up to date of the progress of the case. I appreciated his proactive approach and efficiency of getting things accomplished. I would highly recommend Steven and found him and his company to be very knowledgeable & proficient, professional and courteous.
Steve assisted us when my wife's parents moved out of a retirement home due to being unhappy with the food. This was a "purchase" type of unit, where they paid $200,000 when they moved in but were promised 90% of that would be returned to them if they moved out. After moving out they were told that they would not get their money until their unit was sold and occupied. Sure enough, buried in the legalese of the contract was that provision. With the housing market down in Phoenix, that could be years. We found that the retirement home owners had subsequently changed the contract such that that provision had to be initialed because others had complained of being misled. Steve filed suit and successfully negotiated the refund of the deposit.
Steve Sparks educated himself so well with our case that he learned more about our products performance than we even knew. He knew nothing about the paint industry and water vapor transmission before he started but became so knowlegeable through his investigation and research that he was able to discount the claims against our products performance. Steve worked extremely hard and he and does his homework. We found him to be a very intelligent, fair and honest attorney. He kept us well informed throughout the ordeal with his findings of the false claims against our products performance which gave us hope that things would go our way. We were more than satisfied and highly recommend him. We would definitely use him again should the need arise.
Steve thoroughly researched our case and made himself an expert on the technical details of a very complex situation. He conducted many interviews and made an extra effort to locate all potential witnesses. Steve was very well organized and presented the information to us in a manner so that we could easily understand all aspects of the case. Steve is a very good listener and took the time to let us voice all of our concerns and facts. I greatly appreciated his friendly manner and easy going personality. He is very highly recommended and will not disappoint !
Let me first say that Steve and I have been friends and colleagues for many years and know him to be a very bright and competent litigator. We both work at Sanders & Parks in Phoenix, Arizona. When I found myself dealing with an unscrupulous, intransigent investor who tried to cancel our real estate contract without cause, I initially asked Steve to help me reason with him. Unfortunately, the individual we were dealing with could not have cared less about moral or legal principles. When we filed suit to enforce the contract, we had no idea how long and difficult the case would turn out to be ... Steve stuck it out through two years of litigation and our opponent's frequent firing and hiring of attorneys. The case finally settled on the first day of trial. Steve provided thoughtful, excellent legal service while always maintaining his professional demeanor ~ regardless of the truly onerous behavior and tactics of the other side. I am delighted to recommend Steve without reservation.
I've relied on Steven J. Sparks for numerous legal actions spanning multiple areas of law. He has proven to be knowledgeable and completely capable in all aspects.
He comes with the highest of my recommendations.
