Steven Van Grack has had great success in countless litigation matters including major victories in large automobile collisions, medical malpractice, wrongful death, dog attacks, sexual abuse, and police brutality.
Steven has been dedicated to protecting the rights of his clients who have been injured as a result of the wrongful actions of another for over 30 years. Steven’s skills are evident from the initial evaluation of his client’s case, to working with insurance companies to ensure bills are paid, to negotiating settlements. The majority of personal injury cases are resolved without litigation. In those instances that a settlement agreement cannot be reached, Steven will attempt to settle the case through alternative dispute resolution. He is certified in the areas of mediation and arbitration. However, should the case go to court, Steven’s trial skills are superior and have served his clients well.
Steven also has significant experience representing student athletes, U.S. Olympians and professional athletes.
