In 1973 Steve left Virginia, where he was born and spent most of his time except during college, and moved to Breckenridge to begin the practice of law. Since that time Steve has been highly involved in local community affairs, both as an advocate for clients and as a participant in local government, including 16 years as Mayor of the Town of Breckenridge. He practices mostly in the areas of real estate and small business, with an emphasis on land use, development and real estate transactions from the very smallest to the very large and complex.
