Chair, Complex Commercial Litigation
Steve moved to Florida when he was four years old. After 50 years, he considers himself a native. Loyalty and commitment are very important to him, as evidenced by his decision to co-found the firm with his best friend since high school, Jay Wasserman. Steve has been married to his wife, Sharon, since 1986, and has two sons, Adam and Jason.
The other lawyers in the Firm have each practiced law with Steve for many years, as have many members of the Firm’s staff. This level of loyalty and personal commitment is the foundation upon which Steve practices law and defines his dedication to each client and their case.
Prior to co founding the Firm with Jay Wasserman, Steve was a partner in Tew Cardenas, where he was the managing partner of the Palm Beach County offices, and was a shareholder co-managing the litigation department of Greenberg Traurig’s West Palm Beach, Florida office. Before that Steve practiced law with Cadwalader Wickersham and Taft.
