Steven has saved businesses and individuals combined millions in taxes, penalties and interest using technical tax planning and practical problem solving by representing taxpayers at all levels of the process, from assessment to Tax Court litigation for civil and criminal tax matters.

During his career Steven lectured extensively for many groups, including instructing attorneys at the Institute for Continued Legal Education, advising CPAS and financial advisors at the Michigan Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA, formerly the MACPA), and presenting at the State Bar of Michigan, to name a few.
