Hear from Attorney Steve Whitworth

"One of my personal goals as your attorney is to wipe clean the stigma and stain that a false or erroneous charge can create in your personal and professional life. I do this by focusing on the clients represented by my practice and focusing on the needs of the individual. My practice is based on providing the best outcome for the client. If this includes trial, then I aggressively move towards trial and diligently pursue and provide the attention to detail that trial requires. If your case does not or should not require a trial, then my contacts throughout the defense community will allow me to enhance your chances of receiving a fair and reasonable outcome.

If you are looking for aggressive, honest, reasonably priced representation, then I look forward to helping you through your case, shielding you, protecting you, and defending you to the best of my ability."
