“Steve Escovar is without a doubt the best lawyer and professional in the business. His professionalism and ability to persuade the courtroom to follow his leadership is amazing to watch. He won both difficult and almost impossible cases for my wife to vacate two prior convictions in a courtroom known for its strict conservative position. I would recommend Steve to anyone and any family member.”
