    When people refer to baseball players, sometimes they will say the truly greatest are "5-tool players." This means they hit well for both average and power, they run well, they have a great arm, and they play great defense. Steve, is a 5-tool lawyer. His courtroom advocacy and knowledge of the law is surpassed only by his ability to help his clients when they need a lawyer most. I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.
