Highly recommend
Steve Wahlberg exemplifies trustworthy, professional and personal service.  His extensive experience, dedication and skillful negotiation resulted in the best possible financial outcomes for my case.  He and his paralegal, Sabrina Bombenger, put me at ease and proved to me time and again that my case mattered to them.  I highly recommend Steve and his staff at Denver Trial Lawyers.

Steve is the best- hands down!
My husband was in a head on collision by a drunk driver. Steve came to our house for appointments to make it easier on us. He actually cares about his clients and I feel he has done everything in his power to get us the money we deserved and justice against the uninsured drunk driver. It's been over 2 years and Steve and his office still check in on us. I cannot ever express how thankful I am to Steve and his firm.

Competent and Articulate.
We chose Steve to help litigate my wife's personal injury auto accident as a plaintiff. Steve and his para-legal, Sabrina, did a great job. I would highly recommend Steve and his firm.
