  • James T. Crouse

    Steve Aguilar and I worked together on a helicopter crash case in New Mexico involving operational negligence, aircraft system design and product liability. Throughout this complicated case, Steve was brilliant as an overall strategist and insightful tactician. He had a true ability to know where the case should go and provided great leadership. Because of his leadership we achieved a very successful result. Throughout the case, he was even-tempered and level headed and was an absolute joy to work with. Hie is a gentleman and true advocate whom I observed to be respected by his peers, both plaintiff and defense.
