Steven D. McFadgen,Sr. Counselor & Attorney At Law



If you have been charged with a crime or entering a civil dispute, it is important to know your rights and to work with a trusted attorney. My firm focuses on protecting the rights and interests of my clients and their families.  Client services include:




Being the object of a criminal investigation is an emotional roller coaster, defending against a criminal charge is a major upheaval in life, and a criminal conviction may have catastrophic consequences including the loss of freedom.  The lawyer you select should be experienced and tested, respected among his peers and adversaries, knowledgeable in the law, adept in and out of the courtroom, skilled in the art of persuasion, tireless in his cause, and passionate in the pursuit of justice.  The lawyer should be tough when necessary and compassionate when the situation requires it.




A criminal traffic offense is a more serious traffic infraction than a simple traffic violation. Based upon an individual’s prior driving record, criminal traffic offences can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony.


Criminal traffic offences often involve:


  •  Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol

  •  Driving with suspended or revoked license   

  •  Reckless driving

  •  Driving with an open container

  •  Leaving the scene of an accident

  •  Street racing


McFadgen Law Firm is committed to helping its clients get through trying times as comfortable as possible. No client is just a fee or just a file to us. We understand that we are dealing with your life and your family. These simple facts affect everything we do for you; from the initial consultation to the final settlement of your assets.


Our attorneys provide quality, professional legal representation to  families and dependents. They also regularly handle cases for private clients. Our individual clients and  receive advice and consultation, document preparation, and representation in and out of court in all of the following areas:

Bankruptcy is an old concept. It’s in the Constitution. In fact, the concept of discharging debt goes back to the Old Testament. Western civilization has realized for thousands of years that being trapped in debt is a bad thing.


Our current bankruptcy system isn’t perfect by any means, but it allows the “honest but unfortunate debtor” a fresh start. A new beginning.


Bankruptcy is a great option for many of our clients, but we don’t sell bankruptcy. The most important thing is to find out what’s right for you and your family. Maybe that’s bankruptcy. Maybe it isn’t.




The civil litigation practice at McFadgen Law Firm provides vigorous  representation for individuals and businesses with pending or threatened lawsuits. We understand that formal legal action can be a cumbersome and expensive process so our attorneys exhaustively explore all of your settlement options before filing suit. However, certain rights can only be protected by court order and oversight, so when the time comes, you can rest assured that we will work tirelessly to achieve the best result possible given the specific circumstances of the client and the facts of the particular matter.


Our goal is to provide you with personalized, cost-effective and efficient legal service.  We understand that legal problems can carry sustantial emotional and financial stress, and the McFadgen Law Firm is here to help. Our philosophy is "Client Satisfaction is a Priority, Not an Option."
