John Stepanovich has been called a “lawyer’s lawyer” by those within the legal profession. In fact, one federal judge even describes him as a “trial lawyer with few peers.” He was recently certified as a life member of the Million Dollar and Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forum, one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.
His legal career also includes the distinct honor of participating in numerous cases before the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Stepanovich has a national reputation as a lawyer litigating constitutional cases, especially religious rights and land-use matters. Besides being admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, he is admitted to practice before federal district courts in Virginia and New York along with the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd, 4th and 6th Circuits.
