Stephen is licensed to practice in Oregon, Missouri and Kansas. His legal career began in 2005 when he was awarded the Judge Glenn Evans Scholarship to study at the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law, where he obtained his law degree in 2008. In his final year of study, Stephen received the prestigious CALI Award in Trial Practice. After passing the bar, he served a one-year term as a clerk for Missouri Court of Appeals Judge Harold Lowenstein, then the longest serving appellate court judge in Missouri history.
Thereafter, Stephen found his passion working as a personal injury trial attorney fighting insurance companies and corporations. In a recent trial, the jury awarded his client 10 times the amount of the insurance company’s final pre-trial settlement offer. His past successes include a $500,000 verdict in an insurance bad faith case and a $1,200,000 settlement in a lawsuit against a drunk driver.
Stephen has practiced exclusively in the discipline of personal injury law for nearly 10 years. He is motivated by helping individuals and families obtain justice after enduring some of the most difficult hardships of their lives. He is an active member of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and Oregon State Bar. He was also recognized by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” and The National Trial Lawyers organization as a “Top 40 under 40” trial lawyer.
Stephen lives in southeast Portland, Oregon. He enjoys being outdoors, rock climbing, yoga, and exploring the Pacific Northwest.
