About me

Outside of his legal work, Smucker has earned a name for himself in the field of long distance running, often competing in ultra marathons—races that take hours to run and go up and down mountains. He placed first in the 50 to 59 division of the 100 mile Western States Endurance Run in 2004. In 1995, at age 41, he held course records at all three Pacific Northwest 50-mile trail races and appeared in Sports Illustrated's, "Faces in the Crowd."

  • Joshua Shulman

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I first met Steven back before I was practicing law. He had a tough case and I watched him do a good job with it. In the years since then, I've consistently seen him work very, very hard for his clients. My personal theory is that his long-distance running has taught him never to give up.
