My case was complicated to say the least. My charges were numerous, and were heard in three different court rooms. Steven had his hands full dealing with different prosecutors, judges, and my mom, who by the way is also a hand full. There were deals offered that seamed appealing to me at the time, all things considered, and would undoubtedly relieve my attorney of mountains of motions to file, and court appearances in three cities. The easy road would have been the one most traveled by most attorneys in his shoes. But the longer harder road payed off, and I ended up home with my family much sooner than anyone had imagined, and much sooner than the prosecutors were intending. Steven Valerio is a very hard working, honest, dedicated lawyer, who would rather work more, and for the same pay, to get his clients the absolute very best representation possible, than work less, for the same pay, and just do nothing more than what he is obligated to. Which is very often the case with hired representation, who can rase the fee as the work load gets heavier. It wasn't just the money I saved, it was my life. He will fight for your freedom, and he will give you piece of mind knowing you have an attorney you can trust and rely on. Thanks again Steve.
