  • Albertina Webb

    I endorse this lawyer without question, even when we are rolling up our sleeves and fighting hard for our clients. Throughout the years, I have had several matters where Steve and I have been adversaries. I have seen him in action in court. He fights hard for his clients. He is a knowledgeable opponent. I have heard from many reliable attorneys that he is also an excellent mediator. I am not surprised.

  • David Allen Krenkel

    Experience and Knowledge is critical to the successful practice of law. Steve has both. When there is a complex family law issue, Steve is the guy lawyers pick up the phone and call for advice.
