I frequently am hired as local counsel from out of state defendants. This requires dealing with counsel that have the obligation to deal with the client and assist with the litigation. This creates a difficult task to the out of state lawyer, because he or she is not familiar with the law in Texas, yet, has to explain and counsel the client. Stephen is a master at both. His grasp of the issues, out of state law, and litigation strategy were as good or better than any Texas lawyer or out of state lawyer I have ever worked with. I cannot be more emphatic how much I endorse this lawyer.
