Whether handling cases before state and federal courts or in arbitration forums, Steve’s primary focus is always on solving client problems in the most efficient and ethical manner.

Steve has a proven track record of skillfully handling a wide range of construction matters including residential construction disputes, design and construction defects, environmental hazards, building collapse, and work delays. Steve’s practice also includes general liability defense, as well as the defense of various professionals in the legal and financial industries. He has achieved positive results for his clients in all manner of cases, from slip-and-fall personal injury cases to multi-million dollar claims related to environmental contamination, fire, catastrophic personal injury, and death.

He is regularly invited to share his expertise with construction trade organizations and professional societies on construction-related matters. He is a member of the Legal Counsel Forum for the American Council of Engineering Companies, and of the Society of American Registered Architects.
