Steven assured me with utmost confidence from our first conversation that I had a strong case and today he showed me that his word was true. I couldn’t sleep or eat before today's hearing but after today, I feel 10x better.

He answered when I called him at 8 p.m. He has since been an incredible source of reassurance and expertise. I hired him to be my voice in a case against one of the worst bullies of my life.
