Steve is a highly skilled trial lawyer who handles his cases with great attention to detail and committment to his client. As experienced trial lawyers diminish in number, he remains a lawyer who tries a number of significant cases each year.

Whenever I learn that Steve is going to defend a case that I filed I know that it will be difficult for me to prevail. Steve's knowledge of medical malpractice is second to none. He is always extremely well prepared and quite gifted at recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of my cases. Most importantly, he is a man of his word.
