  • Jerod Gunsberg

    I strongly endorse Steve's work. He knows how to stand up for his clients and does so with intelligence, skill, and integrity. He is meticulous and most importantly, knows what he's doing in court. Perhaps most impressively is the sense of purpose and seriousness he brings to all cases, whether they be complex federal matters or minor, first-time misdemeanors. Steve is a lawyer who truly puts his clients first.
