Steve is a native of Sioux City, Iowa.  He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 1993 with a major in political science and minor in English.  Three days after graduating from UNI, Steve started law school at the University of Iowa.  Steve completed his law degree in two years and three months and graduated from Iowa With Distinction.  While in law school, Steve worked as a research assistant for Professor Sumi Cho, as a law clerk for Califf & Harper, P.C., in Rock Island, Illinois, and authored a research project for the Moot Court Board.

Steve began his career in the private sector with the firm of Finley, Alt, Smith, Scharnberg, Craig, Hilmes, and Gaffney, P.C. in Des Moines, Iowa.  Steve and his wife Tracy moved to Yankton in 1999 when Steve became associated with the firm.  In 2004, Steve became a partner.  Steve’s practice areas include commercial litigation, creditor rights and collection work, creditor side bankruptcy work, and general civil litigation.
