Practice/Experience: 
 

Steve is a native Washingtonian and long-time resident of Seattle.  Steve’s current practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, including contract disputes, insurance coverage and bad faith, tort claims, environmental liabilities and brownfield issues, product and premises liability, construction defects, subrogation, and intellectual property.  

Steve has over twenty years working in Seattle law firms specializing in commercial, intellectual property, and securities litigation; insurance defense of complex, high-value claims, including wrongful death; and complex insurance coverage matters regarding environmental liabilities, brownfields, product liability, premises liability, additional insured claims, and professional liability, representing both insurance companies and insureds.

There are no guaranteed outcomes in the law. Every case is different, and the results obtained will depend upon the specific facts and circumstances of a client's situation.
