Steven E.
Bledsoe

Partner

 
"I am a trial lawyer, not a litigator. In my experience, most 'litigators' are secretly afraid of actually going to trial and that fear compromises their ability to get the best result for their clients. I prepare my cases for trial from day one, which helps me get the best results for my clients through settlement or trial."
