About Steven

Learn Steven’s areas of practice.

I have recovered millions of dollars for injury victims and their families.  Call now for a free consultation.  Don't settle for less.  My professional career and personal life has focused on defending and fighting for those in need of an advocate.  I grew up in Milwaukee Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison where I met my law partner Chad Lanning.  We share a passion for upholding and pursuing justice.  

While a full time student at UW-Madison, I volunteered in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Meriter Hospital.  Also, while attending Madison and working in the WI State Senate, I worked on Senator Feingold’s successful bid for the United States Senate.  While working in Washington, DC I fell in love with the law and learned how laws could impact individuals’ lives. 

While attending Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri I interned at the Wisconsin State Public Defenders Office, a Milwaukee labor law firm, and the Missouri Commission on Human Rights.  At graduation I was the recipient of the Cater-Tedrow Memorial Award which is given to one student who exemplifies the aims of all those entering the profession of law.    

Upon graduation, I entered the General Counsel’s Office of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in Washington DC and then was then named the first Legal Scholar in the history of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.  

My desire to litigate cases and battle for individuals brought him into the specialty of representing children who had been poisoned by lead.  I continued to represent national and international unions.  I represented the Major League Umpires, teachers unions, firefighters, government employees and many others.

I have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for workers and injured individuals.  I only represent employees and victims.  I never represent insurance companies.  


In addition to my pro bono legal work I have been deeply involved in the community.  He has coached little league for numerous years, served on charitable boards, volunteers in public schools, and was a Big Brother and Big Sisters for over 16 years.

Attentive and Persistent
I hired Steve to help me with a small claims issue and he worked with me every step of the way. He listened to all of my concerns and thoroughly addressed each one. He never made me feel like my case was insignificant or unimportant. He went to court for me multiple times and got me the settlement that we agreed upon. He was professional, attentive and persistent. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a lawyer that will work hard to get you what you are owed.

Beyond expectations
I came to him just to keep from being taken advantage of by the insurance companies. He not only protected me but got me far more in return. He was available for me when ever I had questions. He also layed out my options without pushing me in any direction.

Respectful and hard working
He was sure to get all of the details of the case to make sure I was not wasting my time. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything that was going to happen. He looked deep into finding other cases that could help us. At the end of the day he fought for me and respected me. He wasn't a pushy lawyer like some, nor is he just in it for the money. If God forbid I have another case I'd gladly hire him again.
