Attorney Awards


Steven is a trusted advisor, helping clients navigate all aspects of the commercial real estate development process, from land acquisition and financing to leasing and planning. He has been recognized in Chambers USA for Real Estate every year from 2004 to 2018 and has been named to The Best Lawyers in America list for Real Estate from 2007 to 2018 and for Banking and Finance Law from 2009 to 2018. His additional areas of experience include the acquisition and sale of businesses, as well as health law corporate compliance.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

[I like to] spend time with our five grandchildren who live in Birmingham and Virginia; visit family in Charleston, South Carolina; sustain the bonds of friendship with my friends, including those from my youth in Charleston and from my student days at the University of Virginia and the University of Virginia Law School, whom I cherish to this day; and read and educate others about the Middle East, particularly the State of Israel, which I think is one of the modern miracles of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Why did you become an attorney?

I wanted to be like my father, who, after his service in World War II, graduated from the University of Virginia Law School and practiced law in Charleston, South Carolina, for 66 years until his death in December 2015. He was a role model to all of us, and each day we try to emulate the care, attention, and service he provided to his clients.

What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is meeting very interesting people and hopefully doing my best to serve them with excellence to help them achieve their goals. Our clients choose us to handle their important matters, which is an honor and a privilege.
