Away from court I am married to an incredible wife Virginia, and together we are raising three boys and a girl. We love to attend our local church, surf and participate in anything related to the outdoors. In our downtime, we can be observed fighting over biographies and history books from all periods or watching nature shows, nature-related reality shows, sports, or Dude Perfect.

Steven A. Meline, Founding Attorney

I have been given the opportunity to represent injured workers after 12 years representing workers’ compensation insurance companies. I know how they work, think, and evaluate claims. I usually know what they are going to do before they do. I prepare every case for trial making it clear to our opponent that they should do the right thing for our client.

I am the father of two beautiful adult children and patiently waiting for grandkids.

Widowed in 2016, I am now spoiled by my dear new wife Karen. We are part of Calvary Chapel Pacific Hills in Laguna Hills. I am also a part of the Christian Legal Society of which I was the Orange County president for 10 years. Interests and activities include fishing, hunting, skiing, and working on an old MG sports car.
