His extensive trial experience in having tried over 75 jury and non-jury trials will be invaluable to the Firm’s clients. Steve will also mentor the younger attorneys in the Firm and improve their trial skills. Steve is a great asset to the Firm, and we are proud he chose to continue his legal career at Haber Law. “
“This is a special opportunity for me,” said Davis. “David and I have been friends for a long time, and I am thrilled to join the Firm’s thriving practice. We have discussed this for a few years and the timing was finally right for me to join the Firm. I look forward to being part of the growth of the Firm and providing outstanding legal work for our clients.”

Haber, Managing and Founding Shareholder. “We are excited about Justin’s joining our expanding group of construction attorneys.
