    I have known Steve for over four years and have worked together with him on a number of cases. Steve's professionalism and attention to detail are unparalleled. Additionally, and arguably most importantly, Steve genuinely cares about his clients and works diligently to get them the results they deserve. Steve is not only an excellent attorney; he is also an excellent person and an exemplary member of his community. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for an excellent attorney in the Harris and Brazoria County areas.
