Client Comments

"Stephen Saxon is thoughtful, talented, knowledgeable and practical."

"Steve Saxon is our relationship partner at Groom, and also involved in many of the matters on which Groom has provided advice and counsel. Steve is a very personable and practical attorney, which we very much appreciate. He is also quick to refer a matter if one or more of his colleagues are better suited or, frankly, cheaper. We have never had an issue with any matter bottle-necking with the relationship partner and we are also free to call any other attorney in the firm directly as well."
