Steve is an experienced first-chair trial lawyer who joined the firm in 2014. Like several other SAKG attorneys, Steve spent much of his career with “big law“ firms in Kansas City, where he focused his practice in the areas of medical malpractice litigation, professional liability litigation, long-term care litigation, and commercial litigation.

“It is a pleasure to practice law with others who have a passion for it and believe wholeheartedly in the idea of zealous advocacy for firm clients.”

Steve has tried a number of cases to verdict, including a jury verdict in his client’s favor in his initial first chair jury trial, which was a surgical malpractice case arising from an esophageal dilatation procedure.
