Steve has experience in a variety of civil litigation, including personal injury and medical malpractice. At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, Steve's primary areas of practice are criminal defense and personal injury. 

Steve has a strong record of success when defending individuals charged with crimes. For instance, he has resolved many cases favorably for clients who were facing various misdemeanor and felony convictions, lengthy jail and prison sentences, DUI, drug, and theft convictions, embarrassing sex offender registration requirements, and burdensome driver's license suspensions.

Whether criminal or civil, Steve treats every case as though it is own and is willing to go the extra mile for his clients.
