Steve was my lawyer for a very serious felony case earlier this year. He showed up at 4am while I was in jail to brief me on how to get out. He not only got me out, but got me the best possible deal. I Was facing 15 years prison and I got 30 days house arrest. He knows his stuff and will fight for you because he cares.
Attorney Whitworth represented me in an employment case, and was absolutely superb! He made sure I clearly understood every step of the way, and always had my best interest at heart. If I ever need help from a lawyer in the future, Steve will definitely be my first call!!!
