About Me

Mr. Steinmetz represents people who are accused by the government of a crime or violating their licensing standards. The government makes mistakes, sometimes they accuse the wrong person or don't do a complete investigation. Mr. Steinmetz is a strong advocate who will assure that the truth comes out and help the court to understand the whole circumstances surrounding the accusations and to see the whole person. Because sometimes good people have bad days.
