Professional Biography

Steven N. Cole was born in 1966. He received his education at the University of Arizona, getting his B.S. in 1988 and his Juris Doctor in 1992. He is a member of the Arizona Bar. Steve’s many awards include Family Lawyers Assistance Project Volunteer of the Year, 1996; Arizona Bar Foundation Top 50 Pro Bono Attorneys of Arizona, 2001; Volunteer Lawyer’s Program, Volunteer of the Month in May 1996, and October 2000; and Volunteer Lawyer’s Program: Advocate of the Year, 2000.

Steve has been practicing as an Arizona family law attorney since 1993. In his practice, he emphasizes mediated resolutions whenever possible but will utilize a tough approach whenever circumstances require it. Due to the limitations in Maricopa County on litigants’ court time, Steve makes frequent use of depositions in order to acquire testimony prior to going to court. He will not sugarcoat your options. At that first consultation, you’ll know what you are facing, the risks that go along with litigation, and the potential impact on yourself and your family. Above all else, Steve will try to give you as much information as possible in that first meeting so that you can make an educated choice about what path to pursue at this difficult time.
