"I was very fortunate to have retained Steve for a recent serious legal problem. He never once made me feel rushed when either listening, or explaining the options I had. In all my communications with Him he was totally upfront and clear. He made sound recommendations and He delivered everything he said he would. His integrity and honesty can only be found in a Field Grade Marine Corps officer."
