Steven Mark Sweat

About me

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:
