Review
It was a pleasure working with Mr. Norman. He answered every phone call and email in a timely manner. If we had a questions he answered them in full never once leaving us scratching our heads. I would highly recommend Steve Norman to any friends, family or business associates who may need to utilize his services.

Lawyer who will outwork the competition
I hired Mr Norman for a DUI issue I was involved with in the MD court system. He immediately told me he was not familiar with the judges in my county and didn't specialize in my specific type of case. He then offered to help me locate someone who was. I retained his services anyway and he appeared to work twice as hard as the oposition lawyers to compensate for his lack of comfort in that particular area. By the time we went into negotiations he knew the issues better than the other law team. He went out and researched the issues and reported back to me with options. He brought in experts he found to bolster my case. He was willing to go to court if necessary, which many lawyers are not willing to do. I was impressed with his work habits and straight shooting approach and appreciated his honesty.

Fantastic Attorney
Steve is a fantastic attorney and have used him for as long as I can remember. Steve has done lots work for me in the past, as well as recently taking care of my settlement with my home. Any time I seek legal advice, there is never a second guess for a consultation. I reccomend using him as his responsiveness, critical thinking and solution orientated skills are unmatched in the industry. I definately give him a thumbs up.
