Provides Excellent and Efficient counsel - highly recommended!
I can't speak highly enough about Steven, My partner surrendered to face a drugs possession charge in the US in December 2018 and Steven worked tirelessly on his case to get an excellent result - released on probation in February 2019 - a really quick turnaround in a complex case. Steven is extremely professional, very approachable and gives of his time freely to offer support and advice. He's an all round great person, very helpful and always ready to answer any queries so that your mind is put to rest quickly. This guy really knows his stuff and I would highly recommend him.

Reliable, professional, and got the job done
I hired Steven after receiving my second cellphone ticket. Steven was reliable, approachable and professional leading up to my court date. He got my ticket reduced to a lower offense. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommended
If you're looking for a detail-oriented, creative, and determined lawyer, Steven is the attorney to turn to. He has consulted me on contract law and insurance. He pushed hard for good results and maximized closing credits in a real estate transaction we did. You can depend on him to present your story carefully and thoughtfully. He also offers reasonable fees, and can work with you to operate within your budget. My nerves were calmed, my opinions valued, and the process was always explained. Awesome attorney!

Provides Excellent Legal Counsel
Unlike many lawyers, Steve really cares about doing the best he can for you and takes pride in his work. At a minimum, he provides good legal advice that helps you understand your options, so you can make an informed decision about your situation. Steve was beyond helpful in two recent situations and is a great lawyer to have in your corner. First, he was able to quickly resolve for us a situation regarding an apartment vs insurance issue, where both parties were not acting in good faith and we were stuck with the bill from somebody's leak that violated the HOA agreement. After that Steve provided me excellent legal insight into the laws and protections offer by trade-marking and copy righting my intellectual property of my start-up, as well as, how best to set up a legal entity (e.g. the company) If you need legal advice I highly recommend Steve, he seems to have an excellent understanding of the law and once he takes on a case, becomes a "trusted adviser" to you.

"I endorse this lawyer. I first met Steve when he was an assistant Hudson County Prosecutor and I was immediately impressed by how he handled himself in court. He has a strong grasp of the law but is also very approachable which is rare in our profession. We are lucky to have him on our side of the fence these days. I often find myself contacting him to discuss legal issues and seek his advice. As a fellow defense attorney I confidently say that any client would be lucky to have Steve as their attorney."
