As the founder of Fields Law Firm, Steve began his law career with a small personal injury law firm helping people injured throughout Minnesota.

Starting out with just himself and one legal assistant, Fields Law has grown into the largest work injury law firm in Minnesota.

Steve believes his experience has helped him to be prepared for any circumstance that his clients face after getting hurt at work or if they are disabled and unable to return to work.

Steve grew up in Kasson, Minnesota, just outside of Rochester where he learned the value of hard work and spent time doing a variety of jobs including painting, janitorial work, and working for small family farms before heading to college in Mankato.

He attended Minnesota State University (Mankato State University) where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. While in college Steve worked nights and weekends at Sears in the old Madison East Mall for four years.
