Great Lawyer
I hired Mr Steffens, after I was in a bad car accident. He treated me as I was family. He didn’t allow the insurance companies to bully my around, and he was very productive in my case, always giving me updates, and checking on my wellbeing. I recommend him to anyone going through any type of case, he’s an honest, and caring man! 5 star rating for sure!

Personal injury case handled to my satisfaction
Bill and his assistant Janet kept me informed and up to date on the status of my auto accident personal injury case. The settlement amount was less than what we asked for, but he fought to keep it a satisfactory amount.

Outstanding attorney
My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Bill and his great staff on more than one occasion. We've always found his legal advice as well as his legal work and to be thorough, professional and complete. Bill takes the time to explain options and provides the necessary information for clients to make informed decisions about what legal solutions will work and why.

outstanding Law team
We had a long hard road with our case and Mr. Steffens worked hard through it all. His team or his self keep me in formed all the way. And Mr. Steffens went above and beyond to make sure my family and I was taken care of no matter what I have to say this is one top notch law team I have ever worked with and the whole team worked to get our situation taken care of. With what they had to work with I will say I am 100% satisfied. The Steffens law is the best I have worked with. Thank you for all you did for my family in getting this done and over. BK

The best attorney you could ask for
Bill Steffens and his team work hard for you and treat you great. They also stay on top of things. My case was long and tough but these guys nailed without missing a beat. If you are worried about the hassles of pursuing your case please talk to this team they are simply nicest and most professional you can ask for. Without them my case would have been a nightmare between all the medical and the work comp payments they stayed on top of it and made it much less stressful than you expect. You will not find a better attorney and his team.
