Steven P. Roberts Personal Injury Lawyers
My car was hit and totaled, I was not injured so I was trying to negotiate with the insurance company on my own. They were offering me a very low settlement and I was getting nowhere. A friend recommended Steven Roberts, he was able to get me almost 3 times what the insurance company was offering me for my car. He and his staff are very friendly and professional without being stuffy or intimidating. In highly recommend him to anyone who is unfortunate enough to need these services.

Thank you so much to the lawyers, paralegals, errand runners, coffee go getters, etc... from the first meeting to the last meeting, i had no doubt in my mind they were part of my team. There was not a lot of personal interaction.Most correspondence was done via email which was very convenient. Just when i would start to get nervous i would email to see how my case was going they had an abundance of of new information for me and my case was moving forward. I had a positive out come in a timely manner. Would recommend 100%.Sincerely, Rebecca Recktenwald

Mr Ronca and his staff are very slow to respond or communicate with clients. We had to use his offices services to settle an estate which he represented and it was very time consuming, difficult and expensive.

After a car accident put me in physical therapy for several months, my insurance refused to pay for most of my treatment. My doctors and PT referred me to Steve. He won my case and got me a settlement that covered much more than my insurance wanted to cover. Thanks Steve!

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
