    Mr. Steinberg is one of the smartest and gifted advocates I have had the pleasure of working with in a long time. He has an uncanny ability to quickly study an issue, master the nuances, and articulate his position in such a manner as to persuade even the most hardened opponents. It's my pleasure to strongly endorse Mr. Steinberg!
