Steve’s two immigrant parents moved their family to the United States in order to provide their children with better opportunities in life. With this in mind, Steve’s lifelong goal has always been helping families and children in need.
Steve’s practice is devoted to domestic adoption, including termination of parental rights and interstate compact compliance. In addition to successfully representing adoptive parents in the finalization of their adoptions, Steve devotes countless hours assisting underprivileged children on a pro bono basis. His legal experience and lifelong goal were the driving force behind his decision to pursue adoption work.
