Steven Walsh, Associate

Biography

Steve joined Sandberg Phoenix in 2012, and focuses his legal practice on product liability and toxic tort matters. With a wealth of experience defending asbestos, benzene, silica and other toxic tort cases, Steve has represented general contractors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, miners and distributors across a variety of industries, including aviation, consumer products, trucking, automotive, construction and heavy machinery.

“Sandberg Phoenix provided me the opportunity to take on cases and work them from beginning to end,” Steve says. “Whether the solution is a quick dismissal or taking a case all the way through trial, I’m able to pursue the best interests of my clients.”

Steve is responsible for all aspects of the litigation including expert discovery, written discovery, depositions, motion practice, settlement negotiations and trial, and has obtained dismissals for his clients in numerous cases. He takes pride in his ability to rapidly analyze a matter and determine the extent of the threat to his clients’ goals, then formulate a successful defense strategy.

“For clients who rarely face litigation, I’m able to step in and reassure them that we can help with their situation and return life to normal. For clients more involved in legal disputes, they trust me to handle their matters effectively and efficiently,” says Steve.

In his free time, Steve spends time with his wife and young son and is an avid sports fan, cheering on the Cardinals and Blues, as well as attending Mizzou football games. He also enjoys playing roller hockey, softball and travelling, especially to anywhere he can snow or water ski.
