“I have been fortunate to be able to count on Steve several times for his invaluable advice. Without Steve's timely intervention, we would have never had the opportunity to learn everything that we have since then or to spiritedly resist [this healthcare organization’s legal maneuvers] as long as we eventually did. Good people make good things happen. We look forward to many more years of our relationship with Flaster Greenberg.”
