Biography

PERSONAL HISTORY & BACKGROUND

Steve was born in 1966 in Fairmont, West Virginia, the third of five children. Steve’s father was a former coal miner turned Army soldier. Steve spent the first nine years of his life moving from one Army base to another. Steve’s family settled in Jacksonville, Florida, on Steve’s tenth birthday, September 6, 1976, shortly after his father’s retirement from the Army.

Steve graduated from Terry Parker High School in 1984, after which he attended college at University of Florida, where he graduated with a degree in Classical Studies (and with a 3.7 GPA in his major and a 3.3 GPA overall). After graduating in 1987, Steve went to law school, his first year at University of Mississippi, and transferring to University of Florida College of Law, where he graduated in Honors in 1991.

Steve married his wife, Deborah L. Greene, on February 14, 1995, at Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Jacksonville, Florida. Steve and Deborah have an 18 year old son and a 9 year old daughter. Steve’s wife Deborah is also his law partner. All of Steve’s time away from the office is spent with his family.

Steve and Deborah are prior members of Central Christian Church, where they served on the Board when it merged with Eastside Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) (a predominantly African American congregation), and when its name was changed to Springfield Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Steve was also youth sponsor at Central Christian. Steve and his wife, Deborah, are currently members and serve as Deacons at Riverside Avenue Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), in Jacksonville, Florida.

Steven enjoys studying constitutional law issues and the history of the drafting of and early interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. Steven and his wife, Deborah, also enjoy reading books together, attending movies together, and traveling (both at home and abroad).
