Fantastic Eminent Domain Lawyer
I retained Steven to represent me in eminent domain proceedings with UDOT. He did a fantastic job and was able to get me more compensation than I expected. His rates are fair, his communication was great, and he’s extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended

Very good eminent domain attorney
For a condemnation problem I had with UDOT, I feel that Steven Joffee secured the best possible result, under the circumstances. He was efficient, and very knowledgeable about how to work with the parties involved.

excellent appellate lawyer
Clerked for both the Tenth Circuit and Utah Supreme Courts. Remarkable legal mind. Not the kind of Utah lawyer who thinks there is only one right answer to a legal question. Creative and insightful.
