Biography

Steven joined Wichmer & Groneck after graduating cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis in 2009, where he received the Henry H. Furth Scholar in Law Award and Excellence in Oral Advocacy Award. His practice has focused almost exclusively on immigration law ever since. Now a principal member of the firm, Steve routinely assists clients seeking to obtain visas to the U.S. before the Department of State and in pursing family-based and employment-based petitions as well as naturalization and asylum applications with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), including appearing with clients at interviews and examinations under oath. In addition, Steve has a robust practice in defending clients faced with deportation from the U.S., representing them in efforts to prevent removal and obtain legalization in proceedings before the Immigration Court and Board of Immigration Appeals. He is a member of the Bar of the Federal Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and regularly represents clients in Petitions for Review before the Federal Courts of Appeals. Steve is also a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
