Steven maintains a varied practice focusing on representing workers who have been injured on the job and people who have been injured due to the negligence of others. His practice also includes representing consumers who have been harmed by unfair or deceptive business practices.
Steven started his legal career with the office of the North Carolina Attorney General, where he worked primarily defending the state of North Carolina in workers’ compensation cases, before deciding to join Martin & Jones out of a desire to help real people who have been injured or harmed. Steven understands how difficult it is for people who are injured, out of work and concerned about providing for their families while receiving medical treatment, to get their lives back. Steven takes representing these folks to heart and works diligently and urgently to obtain the maximum recovery and benefits allowed under the law.
Steven graduated from Wake Forest University School of Law. While in law school, he was recognized for earning the highest grades in both Workers’ Compensation and Sales, which included review of North Carolina’s product liability law.
Prior to law school, Steven attended Lenoir-Rhyne University, earning an undergraduate degree in Political Science. During his time at Lenoir-Rhyne, he was a member of Pi Sigma Alpha (the National Political Science Honors Society) and the Deans’ List. Steven also spent a semester in Washington, D.C., where he interned in the office of Congressman David Price.
Steven is a Raleigh native, and attended Millbrook High School. Outside of the office, he enjoys basketball, cooking, and watching the Demon Deacons.
