Well connected, veteran, superior lawyer
I wanted to hire George specifically but very happily ended with Mr. Stephen Ward. I had a very difficult DUI case with 7 other misdemeanors, a 30 minute video of me drunk trying to talk to an officer; drunk, etc. Not a lot of hope or anything to work with. Mr. Ward got all evidence dismissed by irritating the arresting officer in court to the point where he was huffing and puffing on the stand when being asked questions by the judge! Stephen was fun to watch in the court room and worth every penny. Stein and Ward LLP is the best for a reason.

Very Professional Attorney
Although, I already had representation from another civil attorney.. After consultation with Mr. Ward. I regret not having him as my defense attorney, before I was represented by another general contractor that handles a variety of all types of cases.

Hopeless situation
I was charged with DUI and serious bodily injury by vehicle, and was facing up to 15 years in prison. I hired Steven ward to represent me and it was a great decision. Immediately Mr Ward made me feel confident and kept me informed in the entire process. He pushed strongly that we should go to a jury trial and not accept any of the prosecutions early plea deals. On the day of Jerry selection prosecution offered 2 take away the felony vehicle accident charge and offered me a simple misdemeanor DUI. This involved one year of probation a fine in 40 hours of community service. I am confident that it was Mister wards well-known reputation as a trial lawyer and his knowledge of my situation that kept me out of prison. I strongly recommend mr. Ward to anybody seeking legal representation.

Highly recommended
I was facing the following charges. Speeding, Failure to maintain lane, and DUI. Steven Ward was easy to work with and straight forward with me. He was able to get a NOLO Plea with everything combined to a reckless driving w only a small fine. No classes, fees, probation, and I didn't even have to appear in court. Absolutely ZERO points off my license. I highly recommend Steven if you find yourself in this situation.

Amazing
Mr. Steven Ward, and the entire team at the George Stein law firm we’re amazing. Mr. Ward walked me through what was a very complicated process, and put me at ease. Mr. Ward explained the process and it unfolded just as he explained it. I would most definitely recommend Mr. Ward, and although I hope the need never arises. He will be my first phone call if I again encounter a legal issue.

Great DUI lawyer
Mr. Ward was absolutely wonderful handling my DUI charge. He got it dropped to a reckless driving charge. He is very personable and stays in contact with you continuously and explains everything to you. Wonderful man. Thank you Mr. Ward. Appreciate you and your continued support through this difficult process.

Simply THE BEST!
Not guilty was the verdict for my DUI case. Steven was referred to me and was as advertised. He listened, is smart and was very crafty in my defense. I hope to never be in another situation like this but if I am I would definitely hire Steven again. I highly recommend him.

No DUI for me
I hired Stein and Ward LLC to be my DUI attorney. Steven Ward was the one who argued my case and I couldn't be more pleased. I never had to be present they handled everything on my behalf which is great since I am from out of state. I hired them because I was told they were the best DUI lawyers in the state and they proved that by having my charges dropped.

NOT GUILTY!
Due to Mr. Ward's defense, I was found NOT GUILTY by the Jury on my charges of DUI: Less Safe and DUI: Per Se. Leading up to my Jury Trial date I always felt comfortable asking questions regarding my case and our defense strategy. I never felt rushed in any of our conversations. Steven goes into as much detail as you need to understand every situation. He took my case extremely serious and it showed based on the amount of information he was able to convey to the Jury during my Defense. My Trial took two days and from the moment Steven stepped into the court room every word was calculated. It was an amazing display of professional litigation. Trustworthy, Knowledgeable, Strategic, Calculated! Bottom line, you need Steven Ward in your corner! I am proud to say he is my Attorney!

Steve handled the case very professionally. He definitely spent a great deal of time researching the case and presenting it .I would highly recommend him to others in my same situation..He was great..

A bargain at twice the price.
I've known Steven for over a decade. He's handled a variety of legal issues for me and my colleagues, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies. Excepting maybe his partner George Stein, if you have a criminal legal matter that needs to be adjudicated, you'll be hard-pressed to find harder-working counsel. His firm isn't bargain basement, but trust me when I tell you it will be money well-spent.

Review from a client
Steven is a an exceptional trial attorney, and a very nice guy as well. He has a way with people; and he can really make them stop and think. He represented me before a jury of my peers as I was accused of DUI, and performed a very clever and vigorous defense on my behalf. The result was a verdict of not guilty. It was amazing to watch him work. He made me feel comfortable and at ease during this stressful time. As the trial progressed, I began to feel more confident of our victory. His superb skill and charisma came into play beautifully during the jury selection process; and this is when his years of experience with juries and his wisdom really showed. I believe that was the crux of the trial; and it was all downhill from there. His thorough cross-examination of the arresting officer was also very well executed. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an exemplary DUI defense.
