I began my practice with a law firm that litigated catastrophic injury cases throughout the United States.  While there, I appeared and argued cases in more than a dozen states.  That firm also handled class actions against banks, in the area of securities fraud and against automobile manufacturers.  

Ten years later I founded my own law firm with two partners where we continued to focus on catastrophic injury cases but with an emphasis on pharmaceutical product liability and nursing home litigation.  After another seven years of actively pursuing many cases at the same time, I decided to cut down on the number of cases I would undertake to have more time to spend on each.  This allows me to be the main contact for every one of my clients and devote much more time to each one.  I make certain my clients know everything that is happening as we progress forward and will get a call or an email back in 24 hours or less whenever they have a question.

 

In addition to the cases I handle in my practice, I work with a six person law firm in downtown Atlanta that handles everything I do not, from aviation to major criminal cases and most everything in between.  The law firm also has lawyers who specialize in federal wage and salary cases as well as church and charitable entity law.

Good Lawyer to have
Steve helped me with a claim with a slip and fall and then helped me when I needed to sue someone years later. He is knowledgeable on even the little things needed to win a case. I trust him.

Will Contest Case
Steven answered my call right away and met with us regarding a case he qualified as hard to prove. He was candid about the length of time, the cost and the odds of a successful outcome. It was a long process taking over a year and the outcome was costly, but as he had predicted in a best case scenario. He worked well with the opposing attorneys which helped our settlement and the judge also liked his demeanor and attitude in court. I would recommend him as a litigator.
