Steve works for people with problems. As a youngster, Steve watched his father—an attorney for over 50 years—help people in all sorts of circumstances solve their problems through the practice of law. As a teenager, after spending several summers assisting in his father’s office, he knew that he, too, wanted to become a lawyer and tackle problems to improve peoples’ lives.
Today, Steve puts his clients’ interests above all else. He listens to their stories, carefully, and earns their trust. He has years of experience and legal knowledge in resolving personal injury claims, business disputes, and civil litigation matters.
When someone who has experienced a frightful motor vehicle accident, for example, and comes to Steve for help—and justice—his first job is to take the “unknown” out of the process.
“Most people fear the unknown. But I have found that I can reduce their fear by explaining the legal process and how injury claims are resolved,” explains Steve. “When my client is free from the stress of the unknown, they can focus on their recovery, and I will make sure that they are fairly compensated for their injuries.”
Steve knows what it takes to put a case in the best position for a fair settlement—approximately 98 percent of all motor vehicle injury cases are settled before filing a lawsuit. He also knows when an insurance company is being unfair. In those cases, Steve and the Graham & Graham team of trial lawyers are well-prepared to try a case in front of a jury to the conclusion.
Graham & Graham has been serving the people of Southeastern Ohio for nearly 100 years, which reflects the many success stories that generations of its lawyers have delivered for clients.
“We work as a team to provide the exact expertise needed to handle each specific matter because we want every client to receive the best possible outcome,” says Steve. “My clients receive prompt attention, and my door is always open to them. I treat others the way I would want to be treated and instruct my staff to do likewise.”
Carrying on in the Graham & Graham tradition of service to the community, Steve is involved in both the Ohio Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice.
