Steve was an excellent attorney for us. My mother had been in a very serious car accident two years before my accident occurred. He had done a wonderful job representing her and both my parents were very pleased with the results he achieved for them and their case. Following my accident, I contacted Steve, not knowing whether or not I had a valid case. He immediately followed up with me and determined it would be in my best interest to have representation. I am very grateful to him for pursuing this case for me. He was professional, caring and extremely competent in his knowledge of the law. To sum up, he was an outstanding attorney for me personally, and for my extended family. I have recommended him several times in the last two years, and will continue to do so. As I've said in the past, and will continue to say, he will be the only attorney for my family in the years to come!

Having worked with different attorneys for various reasons I know how important communication can be to a client. My experience with Steve has been that he is extremely good at staying in communication, and that alone can bring some peace in stressful times.
It has aso been my experience that when one needs an attorney is usually not the time to have a cloudy view of legal realities; one of Steve's strengths is that he will clearly tell you his view even if he knows it is not what you want to hear.
I recommend him as a smart, thorough, sound, and honest attorney.

Stephen is not only a great attorney, but a fantastic person as well. We've known each other since we were literally in grade school. Incredibly bright and hard working. Honest almost to a fault. Friendly, down-to-earth. Very successful in achieving great outcomes for his clients - I know this because I have had the opportunity to work for many of his clients and they absolutely rave about how happy they were with his work. It is a pleasure for me to endorse Stephen.
