I am a partner in the Corr Cronin firm. I am an experienced jury trial lawyer who has tried more than seventy cases to verdict. My practice focuses on complex trial work, including product liability lawsuits, commercial litigation and the defense of securities and other class action lawsuits. I also use my experience as a former SEC attorney and criminal prosecutor to help individuals and companies respond to civil and criminal investigations.
Prior to joining the firm, I was a senior homicide prosecutor in Seattle, where, for several years, I exclusively tried murder cases, including a number that received front-page media attention. Before moving to Seattle to become a prosecutor, I practiced in Washington, D.C., where I began my career as a staff attorney for the Securities and Exchange Commission Division of Enforcement.
Licensed since 1989
As a judge I saw Steve Fogg try many criminal cases with excellence. I was the mediator in a difficult federal intellectual property property case between a small business and a large business. Steve helped his client see why a settlement served the interests of all parties, even though Steve might have had a large fee trying the case.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Steve since our early days together in the King County Prosecutor's Office. He is extremely intelligent, hard-working, and a very formidable litigator. Steve has extensive courtroom experience and is highly regarded by judges and fellow attorneys. His professionalism is unquestioned, and I refer clients to him with the utmost confidence. I highly recommend him.
