    I first met Steve and his exceptional staff in 2006. Unfortunately for my family and me, it was far too late as we suffered the loss of my 20+ years as a dentist due to my prior attorney's negligence.

Administrative law is too specialized to entrust to any attorney. Trust your pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness to no one but Steve. Read less
