Steve brings dedication, an eye for the practical, and the highest level of work ethic to his busy civil litigation practice. He frequently represents individuals, businesses, and multinational corporations in a wide variety of civil matters including complex commercial, probate, and catastrophic personal injury litigation. Steve also has an active practice representing and advising creditors, trustees, and debtors with respect to their rights and responsibilities under the United States Bankruptcy Code.

Before joining Verrill, Steve served as a law clerk to the Honorable John A. Woodcock of the United States District Court for the District of Maine. During law school, Steve served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Kermit V. Lipez of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

When Steve is outside the office, he devotes much of his time and energy to any and all aspects of baseball. During his time as a graduate student at Clark University, he wrote his master's thesis on the role of baseball during Reconstruction, which was subsequently published in an academic history journal. Also, while in law school, Steve coached the junior varsity baseball team at Falmouth High School. Currently, Steve enjoys obsessing over the Boston Red Sox and discussing baseball history. When the Red Sox are not in play, Steve turns his attention to the Celtics and Patriots.
