More Information
Steve represents numerous architects and engineers in various aspects of their professional practices. He works closely with his design-professional clients, and oftentimes their professional-liability insurers, to provide loss-prevention and risk-management consulting so clients can resolve disputes and potential claims before they result in litigation or formal proceedings. Where litigation is unavoidable, Steve has successfully worked with his clients to have the claims dismissed before trial, or positioned the litigation to better manage potential exposure and obtain favorable outcomes through settlement. Steve has handled cases involving the design and construction of small and large residential and commercial developments, highway/heavy projects, street and underground utility upgrades, storm water and sanitary sewer systems, wastewater treatment plans, parking structures, water towers, skilled-nursing facilities, public libraries, and municipal buildings. In addition to malpractice defense, Steve has also successfully represented design professionals in various commercial and business matters related to their practices and companies.
