Over twenty years ago, I joined the Cooke & Steffan law firm. In my time serving the community of Alden, it has been my goal to put integrity and quality work above all else. When working with a client, my approach is always to listen first to their concerns, wishes and expectations. After understanding my client's intentions, I can then provide the personalized service that he or she deserves. No matter the task, I hold myself and my staff to the highest expectation of excellence, and will accept nothing less. When you trust our law firm to provide you with service and guidance, whether a simple matter or complex legal issue, you can depend on us to see it through to the end.
