InfoExperience that matters for Montana
Over 14 years of practice, Steve has a broad range of experience in private practice, public service, and academia.

Steve began his public service career as Chief Legal Counsel to the Montana Secretary of State. Thereafter, from 1997-2001, he served as Executive Assistant Attorney General then Acting Chief Deputy with the Montana Department of Justice. During his nearly four years with the Attorney General’s office, Steve undertook complex civil and criminal cases – from defending challenges to Montana’s Stream Access Laws to keeping criminals behind bars. He also served as the Legislative Director, coordinating the Attorney General’s efforts and regularly testifying before the Legislature.

From 2001-2004, Steve practiced law with the Washington, DC firm of Steptoe & Johnson. Steve has case management and trial experience in matters involving disputes from $500,000 to $50+ million. Early in his career, he practiced law in New York City.

From 2002-2004, Steve also served as an Adjunct Professor at the George Washington University School of Law.

A Montana native and product of the Helena public schools system, Steve received his undergraduate degree from Claremont McKenna College and his law degree with honors from Columbia University Law School in New York.

Montana Practice...Montana Values
For the past several years, Steve has been in private practice in Helena, representing individuals, consumer organizations, labor unions, peace officers, associations of political subdivisions, and small and large businesses.

Steve’s statewide practice reflects the values he holds — be it going to court so sheriff’s deputies get paid what’s fair under state law, protecting the rights of unionized workers, fighting to ensure that Montana’s limited-income residents have affordable electricity and gas, or representing conservation districts to protect them from water supply losses relating to mining.

Commitment to Montana Public Service
In 2006, Steve was one of the driving forces and the Director of Raise Montana, an organization that successfully proposed and promoted a ballot initiative to increase the state minimum wage. The measure passed in November 2006, receiving 73% of the vote.

Steve has a 20-year history of organizing and working on behalf of candidates and campaigns, including working for the Montana Democratic Party on staff and then as Coordinated Campaign Director (1990), serving as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention (1992), and running Joe Mazurek’s first campaign for Attorney General (1992).

Making Montana a Better Place for the Next Generation
Steve and his wife Lisa have three children, Caroline, Alexandria and Cameron. Steve serves on many boards and organizations, including the Public Policy Council of the Montana Nonprofit Association, the Board of Directors of Healthy Mothers-Healthy Babies, the Gates of the Mountains Foundation, and the Lewis and Clark County Historic Preservation Commission.
