This varied background gives him the winning edge. Representing victims of injury and discrimination, Steve fights to bring the truth to light while anticipating the opposition’s plans to paint false pictures and mischaracterize the facts.

Unlike large firms, at our practice you will always have Steve’s ear and never deal with junior associates or uniformed paralegals.

We apply these principles to every case, large and small alike, and the results are illustrated by a lengthy roster of satisfied clients.
