    About the Presenter: 

    Steve is passionate about defending business owners who are committed to proactively implementing policies and procedures that minimize legal exposure and maximize potential for success. Through creative advocacy and thorough counseling, Steve has helped clients obtain favorable results to some of the most potentially devastating issues.

    With more than 10 years of experience, Steve concentrates his practice exclusively in labor and employment law. His representations include claims involving discrimination and harassment; wage and hour; union grievances and unfair labor practice charges; and handbook and policy review. In his trial counsel and defense, Steve protects the interest of clients in the manufacturing, construction and trucking industries, as well as local government agencies.

    In college, Steve was captivated by psychology courses that exposed him to federal employment discrimination statutes and resulting judicial opinions. He credits them for his desire to work with the law to persuade arbiters and adversaries on behalf of clients whose businesses he believes in.
