I highly recommend Steve who handles personal injury, traffic and criminal cases. He was very patient with explaining the process of handling my case from start to finish. He is very knowledgeable and definitely is someone I recommend to represent others!

The Best of The Best
I unfortunately got myself into a bad situation with a DUI and a high speeding ticket during the same stop. I came across Steve’s 5 star profile and read testimonials and knew he was the one. He contacted me almost immediately after I submitted a request to talk further. Steve made the entire process unbelievably easy and stress free. He answered every question I had and always in a timely manner, and often times I didn’t even have to ask questions because he was so detailed the information he provided. He kept updated throughout the entire process without me having to ask and was always available via email, call or text. He took ALL the stress out of what was originally an EXTREMELY stressful time. He got me a great plea deal, unsupervised probation, and my speeding ticket (which was very high) to a non moving violation. Keeping my record in great shape. He was also very kind and patient.

Best Attorney in KC Hands Down
Steve is probably the best attorney out there. Saved me a whole lot of time for a case I had. I could not have asked for more, almost put me to tears knowing he got me an outstanding deal on closing my case. If you want someone to work you case with supreme confidence, Steve is the man to get the job done. Experience attorney, I highly recommend you will not be disappointed.

Exceeded Our Expectations
It’s rare that you find a lawyer that is both knowledgeable and patient. Steve is 100% both. I am grateful that he did not bill us by the hour or the emails or many texts my partner and I sent! He was always patient and took time to explain every step of the process. Thank you Steve for making a terrible situation less scary.

DUI (First offense)
I found Steve through a google search. I reached out to about ten attorney’s in the KC area and this guy responded within 5 min. He was a God send, knew the law inside and out and explained all my options, Steve was reasonably priced and was upfront and honest. I just completed my diversion!!! I’m so happy I did not listen to my 100 friends who recommended everyone under the sun. Btw... out of the ten Attorney’s that I reached out to... Steve was the only one that responded.

Go-To DUI Attorney
Steve was the 3rd attorney that I had discussed my options with for my DUI and the second I met with him I knew that he was going to be the one. He thoroughly listened to me and answered every question or request I had. 9 months later I needed Steve’s services again to get my probation ended early so that I could get a dream job. Steve went above and beyond and got it done for me. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone needing a DUI attorney. Amazing guy to work with.
