“Overall, Steve Valsamidis is amazing! He listened, gave great advice, had everything under control! I must say I was very impressed with his skills in preparing to make sure he had the right details to ask the right questions ensuring that all areas were covered. His representation during COVID ensuring we knew the rules to be respectfully reflected his attention to detail. When it came down to representing, he had the details, was prepared. I would recommend him to anyone needing a strong and skilled professional to ensure all bases are covered! I hope I don’t have to, but if I do, I would have him represent me in a heartbeat! Thanks, Steven!”

“I was being charged with a 2nd DUI. Should’ve been just a speeding ticket but it snowballed to the worse. When someone told me about “the Greek”. Gave him a call to see what he could do. He was willing to work with me on payments and he got me off with a general impairment and 6 months probation and NO LICENSE SUSPENSION. he is a savior in this world. This guy knows what he’s doing. I will forever be in his debt. Please. Give him a call for anything. He will fight for you to the end.”
