"Since I grew up a block away from Steve, I decided to work with him over three years ago on my personal injury case involving a bicycle accident. I had an exceptional experience with Steve and his team. He was more than I ever could expect in a lawyer. Steve always let me know what was going on and was upfront about all the details of my case. He was extremely dependable and well-versed in what would occur. I would recommend Steve to anyone who might be in need of a personal injury lawyer."
