    In 15 months Mr. Steele only returned 2 phone calls. Was available to answer 1 phone call and saw me in person 3 times including 1 initial consultation, 1 pretrial conversation 2 days before trial (which I requested) and the day we severed the relationship (I was a walk-in after no return phone calls). Our case was a total loss but because Mr. Steele never notified me of court judgement I now have a garnishment of my wages. I learned about the garnishment when I got my paycheck. POOR SERVICE!!
