About Steve

Mr. Hosea is one of the founders of the firm and serves as the Firm's President and chairs the Board of Directors and Managing Principals Group. His practice areas include trust and estate planning and administration as well as business law. His concentration is estate planning for business owners, including business succession planning. He coordinates planning with his client's accountants and financial advisors; using a team approach to provide a solution that applies true working knowledge of the client's situation and specialized needs. Steve's goal for his business owner clients is to create a plan that helps that business to grow; protect the clients' investments; and create a path for future generations to follow to continue the company legacy. 

In regard to the firm, Steve says that "as part of a multi-disciplinary law firm, we can bring to the table expertise in many business areas, including commercial real estate, franchising, land development and intellectual property. Through our work with clients, we have learned how a great variety of businesses operate. That breadth of background and knowledge is unusual for most estate planners."

Steve attributes his success to the best piece of advice that he has received - "Do what you really love for a living." Since starting work at a young age in his father's contracting business, he has worked continuously through high school, college and law school, in a variety of businesses. He was a carpenter, laborer, a waiter, a bartender and even a gardener before he ever made a dollar as an attorney. Steve became an attorney to represent business owners like his parents.  He truly knows and understands the value of hard work. He is passionate about his career and is dedicated in helping his clients protect the value within their individual organizations. 

Outside of the office, Steve is focused on his work as a board member for various charities and is currently assisting the Maryland Theater for the Performing Arts with the development of a performing arts center in Historic Annapolis.
