  • Philip S. McCune

    Steve is that rare lawyer who has the highest professional skills, but combines them with practical and imaginative insight based on his real world business background. Steve is therefore an exceptionally effective negotiator, but also a superior practitioner at identifying and addressing issues to his clients’ advantage, often before others involved identify them. To have a lawyer who is consistently ahead of the curve, with such a wide range of skills and the ability to use them effectively (and cost effectively), is rare indeed. I have worked with Steve on and off throughout the years on matters ranging from litigation to sophisticated business negotiations. I generally find myself pushed by Steve to be imaginative, insightful and proactive. That is high praise from someone who prides himself on possessing those qualities independent of my business relationship with Steve. I give Steve my highest recommendation.
