Diversity of Experience
First entering the military in 1967 followed by law enforcement in 1970, Steve has a diversity of experience that few attorney’s will ever experience. It is this experience that serves the basis of knowledge for dealing with each client. Experience that exceeds that which any college or law school classroom could ever possibly convey. So often Steve has found that ‘life’s experiences’ are important in not only understanding the impact in legal cases for people but also in explaining our legal system in a manner that people can understand.
