Overview

Steve Holden received his undergraduate degree from Missouri State University in 1977. He later earned his law degree from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 1981. Upon graduation from law school, Mr. Holden did a two-year "tour" in the public defender's office where the cases were tough, fast paced, and unpredictable. The remainder of his years of practice have been dedicated to general civil litigation. He has been a trial lawyer for over 40 years. Mr. Holden has achieved an "AV-Preeminent" rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating awarded in terms of skill, integrity, and ethics. He has tried an estimated 200+ jury trials with in excess of 90% of his civil cases concluding successfully. He focuses on catastrophic injury/loss cases such as in trucking, product liability, bad faith litigation, construction, medical malpractice, employment law, mass tort litigation, insurance litigation, negligence, transportation, business litigation, class action, medical device litigation, general casualty litigation, coverage issues, personal injury, toxic torts, nursing homes, and first party claims.

Mr. Holden has lectured locally, nationally, and internationally on litigation and continues to lecture in areas involving litigation management and litigation avoidance. He has lectured on Wall Street on alternative dispute resolution and was a featured speaker in a nationwide teleconference seminar entitled, "Dorough v. Bell Avenue Nursing Home: How to Evaluate and Try the Tough Nursing Home Cases," which addressed risk management and evaluation. Mr. Holden was also a featured speaker in a nationally broadcast seminar conducted by direct satellite link to all of the carrier's regional offices to teach evaluation of the critical factors to stem the tide of multi-million-dollar plaintiff verdicts that are occurring throughout the country. The "Social Escalation" of plaintiff verdicts is an area of particular interest to Mr. Holden.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
