With over 35 years of legal experience, I am a dedicated, tenacious and creative attorney. I believe in pouring myself into everything I do and am committed to improving and maximizing my skills so that I can serve my clients to the best of my abilities.

Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity to perfect my skills inside and outside of the courtroom and truly enjoy both sides of practicing law. In my private practice I currently focus on representing injured individuals and their families in personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. I get great satisfaction from serving a diverse group of clients and regardless of the kind of case you are involved in, I promise to provide you with personalized, focused legal representation.

Outside of the office I am, first and foremost, a family man. I am a dedicated husband and father. I enjoy traveling and interacting with people who share my interests and values. I am intellectually curious, love books and am especially interested in foreign languages and the science of linguistics. In fact, I am fluent in Chinese, Japanese, French, English and Spanish.

Fantastic Office!
Very professional and I fired the first three Attorneys. I appreciate on the ball and knowledge. This office always answers questions and very helpful and motivated. My case was not moving for 2 years and they kicked it in gear. It is hard to find a good office like this one! I have seen results in a month. Very honest and I finally can relax.

car accident case
He's done a great job not only advising us, but explaining every detail thoroughly through this whole process. He's also very patient when it comes to any doubts or questions we may have.

I hired Stephen Dial for my work related accident. The service provided is beyond expectations. Communication is great!
They work together as a TEAM to ALWAYS get any questions answered. Even through the holidays. I never have to wait too long to get a response. They are on top of things. I am so glad I decided to have Stephen represent me on my case. They work very hard and they are very professional.

No Man Is An Island
Mr. Dial has been my attorney for just under a year now. He has represented me in a suit against my former employer and their insurance company. With his expert guidance and knowledge, I have successfully been able to navigate the maze of legal procedures and depositions that would surely have been intimidating had he not been beside me every step of the way. His warmth and compassion towards me as a client has often defused my anger and helped me to put my current situation into perspective. As a result of his expertise I was recently able to gain a settlement that exceeded my expectations and regain some semblance of normalcy in my life and that of my family's. I'm so very grateful to him and his staff (yes, you too Lois). I highly recommend his services to anyone in search of a true advocate to help them with their legal needs.

Help with going against the big dogs ~
Stephen Dial was absolutely great; and he and his staff made me feel very comfortable. He was very aware of the current laws when dealing with unethical employers. I was happy with the final outcome without having to go to trial with a case against those big dogs that have high paid corporate attorneys'.

Workers comp lawyer knows his stuff!
I rated this lawyer a few months ago and was sadly mistaken. After trying other attorneys, I found that Mr. Dial is the one I needed all along. I apologize for the comments made regsarding Mr. Dial and and am so happy to have him representing me again. I am getting the treatment I need and he and his staff are the best!!

Failed to represent
Stephen Dial was on my workers compensation case for only one month and did nothing on my case except to file a $10,000.00 LIEN on my case! Hopefully, the judges will see what he did. He also did not tender my file in good condition and was not complete forcing me to try and piece it together. Scary. I do not wish this type of treatment on anyone.
