Prior to joining Fields Howell, Steve was a Senior Associate at Ferguson, Frost, Moore & Young, LLP, in Birmingham, Alabama. There, he had a primary focus on complex litigation and coverage defense. Steve served as a staff attorney for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit from 2011-2013.

Steve has served as a law clerk for Owens and Millsaps, LLP; a judicial intern for the Honorable Michael Warren of the Oakland County Circuit Court; and as a legal intern in the Domestic Cable Distribution Office at Warner Brothers in Burbank, California. While in school, he served as a Career Services Office Representative and President of the Sports and Entertainment Law Society, while also earning the Lanier, Ford, Shaver & Payne Award in Intellectual Property.
