Steven Knauss is a member of our accomplished MGA legal team, specializing in business and commercial litigation, as well as personal injury and premises liability, which means he can read daunting volumes of evidence without dozing off.

Steven graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a degree in philosophy (useless), before earning his juris doctorate from the University of Denver (useful).  He then worked for nearly a decade in corporate management, which explains why he can be so irritatingly calm and focused under pressure.  When there’s a high conflict or highly volatile relationship involved, either between the parties or the lawyers, Steven is the guy you want.

Steven’s legal writing is exceptional, but his disarming approach is how he consistently wins cases.  And though he is unfazed by heated courtroom debate, he will hilariously over-react to anyone using gratuitous corporate jargon. Clients consistently rave about his care and attention, as well as the experience and knowledge he brings to every piece of work.
