Steven is a founding partner of Davis & Ferber and leads the firm's Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Group. Since 1979 he has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of clients injured as a result of medical malpractice, automobile accidents, construction site accidents, dangerous products, and a myriad of other negligent acts. Steven has applied his talents as a trial lawyer in other areas as well. He represents individuals who were discriminated against in violation of Federal and State law as well as individuals and groups in class actions for violations of the pay and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Unlike attorneys who settle cases below their intrinsic value out of fear of going to trial, Steven has taken in excess of 200 cases to verdict. This, in turn, makes Steven more adept at settling cases at their proper value because insurance carriers know Steven's reputation and willingness to proceed to trial if necessary.
His unparalleled skill as a fierce litigator and trial lawyer has been recognized not only by clients, but by other attorneys. Steven served as chairman of the Suffolk County Bar Association's Supreme Court Committee. He was appointed to the Judicial Screening Committee where he screened and approved candidates for Judgeship. Perhaps even more telling are the numerous attorneys who refer their personal injury and medical malpractice clients to Steven either at the outset, when they get too complicated, or when a trial is imminent.
In further recognition of his accomplishments and reputation in the legal community, Steven has the highest possible rating of "AV" from Martindale Hubbell.
