In his cases that have proceeded to trial, Stephen has obtained defense verdicts as lead and second-chair counsel in multiple trials in both state and federal court. At the appellate level, he has briefed and argued several cases before the Kansas Court of Appeals and Kansas Supreme Court, including successfully clarifying the law pertaining to the corporate practice of medicine for Kansas physicians and ambulatory surgery centers.
