  • Elizabeth Vila Rogan

    I first learned about Steve while reading a winning decision in an important speedy trial appeal. Subsequently, I had the pleasure of serving as co-counsel with Steve on a complex mortgage fraud case, that involved both trial level defense and an appeal, on which we worked together. He is a thorough, knowledgeable and effective attorney. I highly recommend him.

  • Charles Moses Clapp

    When it comes to criminal law, and especially appeals, Steve represents the gold standard of representation. You will not find a lawyer who is brighter, smarter, or aggressive.
