“I currently don’t drive and was faced with numerous legal documents which I needed my attorney’s help on. The associate attorney from Steve’s office who took me under his wing and actually took an Uber (as he doesn’t drive either!) to Steve’s nearest office in Irvine and met with me three separate times to help fill out the paperwork. I never once worried about the litigation process after Steve and his team took my case. The case is still active and its clear they have the defendants on the ropes. Can’t wait for the case to settle and getting this far in only a few months is beyond what other law firms told me was every doable. FIVE STARS to this Great Firm. I’ve already recommended several friends to them.”
