Stephen R. King

of counsel

Steve practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, and elder law.  He brings a compassionate, yet pragmatic, approach to his representations, focusing on helping clients understand their legal issues.  The guiding principal of Steve’s practice is that legal representation is a collaboration between the client and the attorney.  Those who come to see Steve may start off overwhelmed and unclear of their options, but they leave with the knowledge that their plan fits their individual needs and that they have made the right decisions for themselves and their family.
