  • Geoffrey Travis

    I have worked with Steve Roof on a number of complex business disputes and transactions. Steve has impeccable credentials and a wealth of experience to draw upon. What really sets Steve apart from other competent local attorneys is his exceptional intellect and his ability to view and think about issues in ways other less experienced or less creative attorneys may not see. When Steve takes on a representation, he diligently and aggressively pursues the client's goal until it is met. Steve finds a way to accomplish the client's objectives no matter how difficult the situation. Steve is an outstanding attorney.
