I am an award winning personal injury lawyer with over 20 years experience representing victims of auto accidents and other mishaps recover compensation for their loss. in the "business" of helping people.  That is what I do.  It is first and foremost above all else.  Unfortunately, people don't usually come to a lawyer when things are going great but, rather when something is going wrong.  I always tell them: "For every problem, there is a solution".  I am here to find solutions and to make people's lives better.  I treat each and every client with respect. I return my client's phone calls and emails promptly.  I keep my clients informed about what is going on in their case and, most of all, I try to help them understand everything that they need to know to make an informed decision about resolving their particular issue.  If this is the kind of attorney that you are looking for, then give me a call, email me or visit my website:

Excellent!
Lots to say! Steve took on my case at a point where I was at a low point. He was attentive, available, more importantly available for those conversations that require actual listening! Steve was there every step of the way. He’s not big on sugar coating, but he is truthful! In all, it was a positive an experience with strong results! Highly recommend!!

Exceptional Service
I have known and been a client of Steve for more than 13 years. I find him to be very good at following through on whatever says he would do for you as his client. he has represented several times and is the first person I think of, whenever I am asked do you know an attorney? At present I am represented him...

Steven, was a great lawyer
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven – in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service.

A Great Lawyer
I would sincerely thank Steven and his team for their professionalism and assistance during our most devastating time. Steven made me feel important, not just as a client but also as a friend. He never failed to inform or update me. Moreover, he was very empathetic and encouraging during this difficult process. He really made a positive difference in our lies.

thanks a lot!
I chose Steven m Sweat because my friend’s brother was represented by him and had a great experience. Steven was the first car accident attorney I worked with and is the only person I would love to work with again. I regularly receive phone calls from Steven or from his staff to provide updates. I consider this as perfect communication. I am very pleased with the results of my case. Steven is a great accident attorney and he was very pleasant to work with. I would recommend him!

A lawyer that is responsible to his duty.
All the way through the course of our legal proceedings, we were offered a small amount for settlement. Unsatisfied, we rejected the offer and with the help, the encouragement and the guidance Steven brought to the table were instrumental for us to move forward with the litigation, which eventually led to achieving positive results and a recovery for a much greater amount than what was initially offered. He went above and beyond his call of duty!

A lawyer that you can trust
By working with Steven Sweat and his firm, we found out that he and his firm cares about our situation and not just our auto accident case. When calling or visiting their office, they would warmly greet us and timely answer our questions. Steven Sweat and his firm have our complete trust when it comes to injury and accident cases.

Reliable Lawyer
Last 2012, we were involved in a major car accident and during this time most of my family members sustained life changing and life threatening injuries. Most of us spent several months in the hospital trying to recover, which greatly affected our livelihood. In the end, it was Steven’s experience, knowledge and passion that helped us go through this difficult trial and reach a fair settlement. We are very thankful for his assistance.

Great Lawyer
Thank you for being with us from start to finish! I wouldn’t have gotten through if not for the continuous support and understanding. You’re one amazing and outstanding accident and injury lawyer. Seeing you in action as well as how you never missed a single detail really impressed me. All the time we spent together, it felt like I was in good hands, which is what exactly happened. Again thanks.

Quick service!
I hired Steven's law firm to help me when I was injured in a car accident last summer. He found me a doctor, helped get my car repaired, and got me a good amount of money in my pocket at the end of the case.

Tops on my list
Steve was very attentive and very quickly grasped the essence of my situation. His work and advice was the best I could find and resulted in a very favorable settlement. Can think of no one else in his position that is as informed, knowledgeable, and personable as Steve. He has my highest recommendation.

Great personal injury attorney!
Steven helped me through a very difficult time following a car accident. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality injury lawyer.

Honest and straight forward
I have been doing my due-diligence for 3 days trying to get an answer to a simple question. Steven's answer was exactly what I needed to hear.
Posted by Nick | July 2, 2012
Great Attorney!
This was the first time I had been in a car accident, and I had no idea what to do. I tried to deal with the insurance company, but they kept giving me the run around. Luckily, a friend of mine recommended Mr. Sweat. After I met with Mr. Sweat, everything went smoothly. Mr. Sweat took care of everything. He found a physical therapist right by my work that I did not even have to come out of pocket to pay! In fact, I never had to pay for anything. After concluding my physical therapy, I received a sizable check for my injuries. I know had I not hired Mr. Sweat, this would have never happened. I also know that I will never attempt to work with an insurance company again without the help of an attorney. Thanks for everything, Mr. Sweat!

Very petient very professional
Steve is both patient and professional. Both of those skills were handy while working with a difficult client like me. Steve took the time to go over my case in detail. I never knew a person could be so patient with me since I hired him. I am glad to have attorneys with people skills on my hands.

The Best
Steven was the most helpful, imformative, professional attorney that anyone could ask for. He was positive, honest, and he delivered what he said he would. We worked as a team, he never left me wondering and feeling out of the loop. He returned all of my calls. His assistant Victoria was awsome. I felt like Steven took my case very personal. I was pregnant at the time and he made a lot of things easier for me to deal with. I am forever greatful to him and his staff. I wish him continued success in all of his endeavors. And I will recommend anyone I know....and do not know to use his services. Steve you were a God send.And I thank you forever. By the way...EVERYTHING!!!! is going GREAT! God Bless

Professional, friendly and responsive.
I used a pre-paid legal plan to hire Steve, which means he provided his services at a discount. However, he never treated us like 'discount clients'. In fact, an entire year after he was paid and services rendered, he STILL helped me resolve an issue with my bankruptcy at no additional charge. He responded to all my inquiries the same day even though the problem that arose was no fault of his own. Steven is a great attorney and a great guy.

Highly Recommend!!
From the beginning of my revel in with your law company I changed into very inspired. Steven was who I spoke with at some point of my medical doctor visits, and she or he changed into very useful! I called at the beginning just to find out what it would cost me to lease Mr. Steven for my case, and the whole lot went perfectly. I'm very satisfied with the outcome of my case.
