Before being admitted to the bar, Steve prosecuted for the village of Arlington Heights, Illinois under a special certificate from the Supreme Court of Illinois. He is also the proud father of three of partner Joseph M. Fagan's grandchildren.

Steve began his college career as a Music Performance major, thinking of a career as a Jazz Trombone Soloist.

After becoming an attorney and giving up his position as the CEO, owner and operator of “The Computer King”, a custom-order computer sales company, Steve experimented with multiple practice areas, including Real Estate law and civil litigation. Ultimately, Steve limited his practice to felony and misdemeanor Criminal, DUI and traffic trial defense.

Steven is also a founding member of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association. Steve also regularly teaches at continuing legal education courses, and is a featured Illinois Speaker for US Law Shield at firearms self defense seminars, and is currently Vice President of Security at Kehilat Chovevei Tzion synagogue, where he is a founding member.
