Clients, prosecutors, judges, and fellow defense attorneys all have nothing but the utmost respect for Dean - and rightfully so. Dean is the best there is. Nobody knows the law, the federal court system, and every single person in the building better than Dean does. I always recommend Dean.
Dean is one of the most thorough attorneys that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His trial skills are superb and his preparation second to none.
I have had the privilege of serving as Dean Steward's co-counsel in two complex federal cases. We spent eight months in trial together in federal court in Santa Ana on one of the two. Dean is one of the finest attorneys I have ever worked with. He is an outstanding advocate who has the unique ability to charm the jury while at the same time devastate an adverse witness. I give him the hightest possible endorsement. Mark Fleming, Esq. San Diego, CA
