After graduating from University of Florida College of Law, Steve spent his first couple of years with a small boutique Orlando Law Firm, predominately practicing construction trial work. He was involved in several cases, most notably recognized for his role in the reversal of a 25.0 million dollar judgment obtained after a 13 month trial addressing alleged defects in a large 50" Pinellas County pipeline. From the beginning of his legal career, Steve has been a key participant in numerous high profile, complex cases.

When offered an opportunity to join one of the largest firms in the country, he accepted the challenges and the vast opportunities a large firm would provide. For the next 17 years Steve represented clients throughout the United States, trying cases at arbitrations or the appropriate state or federal courts. Steve's practice experience also grew to include complex commercial trials, patent litigation and appellate matters.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
