Great Lawyer
I recently was involved in a divorce case in Polk county. Steve represented me and did a fantastic job. He was very detailed and knowledgeable in Court. I received full custody of my child and was awarded the proper amount I had requested. Highly recommended!

Horrible attorney - DO NOT RECOMMEND
I had a very clear, straight forward case which should have been an easy case to settle. HOWEVER, Steve is a horrible communicator, did not keep me informed about my case, I did 99% of work, I had to constantly ask him about my case, and when I finally talked to him about why things are not being done, he was very rude, unprofessional and defensive, and told me if I didn't like what he was doing, go find someone else. He flat out lied and contradicted things he said and did. I also found out that there was a conflict of interest in my case which he denied there was nothing wrong. He constantly made empty promises, is very unorganized, was always late for appointments and quite frankly was belittling to his employees. He not only took my entire retainer (which was 1,000s of dollars), he even had the arrogance to send me a outstanding balance due. I never saw a statement for work done, nor did he inform me of how much time he had spent on my case until I fired him. I immediately got a bill from him via email with an outstanding balance due. I reached out to him for help me yet it has turned out to be a nightmare and because of his incompetency and unprofessional conduct, my case is not only not open, but it is now months behind. I wished I never met Steve nor reached out to him for assistance. DO NOT USE HIM. It will be nothing but an exercise in frustration, wasted money, and fruitless time spent.
