Van O'Steen Brings the Law to the People
In 1977, Van O'Steen went to the United States Supreme Court and won the landmark case giving lawyers and other professionals the right to advertise. Before 1977, lawyers in all 50 states were prohibited from advertising. They could not even publish their fees or information about important legal rights.
Mr. O'Steen took this important case to the Supreme Court because of his sincere belief that consumers were being harmed by not receiving helpful information. The Supreme Court agreed and, as a result, people now receive useful information about an assortment of services they might need.
Esquire Magazine featured Mr. O'Steen in an article entitled Van O'Steen Brings the Law to the People. He was designated a member of America's New Leadership Class.

Birth injuries occur in approximately one to three percent of births in Arizona. Common causes of birth injuries include improper pre-natal care, failure to diagnose a disease or misdiagnosis of it, improper delay in inducing labor, failure to perform a c-section when required, failure to respond to apparent fetal distress and improper monitoring and care of the baby following delivery.
If properly and timely diagnosed, most forms of cancer have a high recovery rate. Early detection is critical to survival rate and allows less-invasive treatment options. Because any delay can be costly, a medical professional who fails to diagnose cancer leaves the patient at risk of a bad outcome.

Insurance companies have a well-deserved reputation of taking advantage of their policyholders. In Arizona, every insurance company owes a duty of good faith to its insured.

Our lawyers have represented consumers in some of the most important cases brought against manufacturers of dangerous prescription drugs.
