Experienced Attorney in Estate Planning, Probate, Guardianship, Real Estate, and Corporate Law.
Steven W. Ledbetter has been practicing law since 2002. His practice has included work in a wide range of subject areas while representing a wide range of clients including the federal government, corporations, financial institutions, and individuals. His practice has taken him from the mountains and rain of Portland, OR, to the shops and great restaurants of Dallas, TX, and finally back to his home state of Florida with the beaches and sunshine, where he and his family have settled down in Venice on the Gulf Coast.
Mr. Ledbetter is known as a fair, yet aggressive, attorney. He always puts the goals of his clients at the forefront of every matter and through clarity of communication, dedicated work habits, and use of the latest technology works to produce effective results in a timely and cost effective manner.
Integrity, persistence, attention to detail, and excellent client communication have all been cited by his clients as strengths.
When not working to meet the goals of his clients, Mr. Ledbetter enjoys tennis, golf, fishing, and most importantly, spending time with his twin 3-year-old boys.

Steven is an exceptional attorney relative to matters including Probate, Guardianship and Real Estate. I refer clients to Steve that require representation for probate matters because of his excellent professionalism as well as his compassion for his clients.
