The rest of the time we often have far more serious matters to attend to. One of these is helping people with loved ones who they suspect are suffering abuse at the nursing homes where they reside.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
