I have been a trial attorney for 34 years. I handle family law, criminal and personal injury cases. Family law, which includes divorce, custody, support, paternity, guardianship, and restraining order issues, finds me in court most weekdays, in both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. My personal injury case experience includes settlement or trial of over 35 million dollars for thousands of clients. I also handle most types of criminal cases.
My experience in Los Angeles for 10 years as a trial attorney, as a partner in a successful personal injury firm, and now having successfully represented thousands of clients locally, give me the confidence to give you the legal advice you deserve, at a fair and reasonable rate.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. Please call for an appointment.

I first became acquainted with Stephen when he was opposing counsel on a personal injury lawsuit which went to a jury trial. I found Stephen to be a highly effective advocate for his client and I was impressed with his litigation skills. Subsequently, I have opposed Stephen in family law litigation, and I know that he offers skilled, experienced and thorough representation for his clients. He is also very approachable and, when possible, works very hard to solve family law cases without unnecessary and expensive litigation.
