Steven has been an essential partner for us as we've navigated the tricky waters of starting our business. His expertise in small business and intellectual property law; willingness to discuss any and all questions or concerns; and general easygoing demeanor, have made him an asset to us and an absolute pleasure to work with. He's knowledgeable, articulate, and most importantly: patient. I can't recommend him highly enough.
