While there, he participated in the Tech Ventures Service Group, a clinical program designed to help high-tech start-up companies with various legal issues including licensing, incorporation, business plan creation and patents. He also interned at the Mesa City Attorney’s office in the Civil Litigation department.

After passing the bar exam, Steve went to work as a Legal Fellow at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGEN). While there, he continued to work on transactional corporate law and intellectual property matters. However, Steve longed for a chance in a courtroom and left TGEN after a year to pursue other litigation opportunities.

Steve later moved on to felonies, where he worked on numerous cases including aggravated DUIs, drug possession and sales, trafficking in stolen property and theft. Since starting at Rideout Law, Steve has conducted numerous bench trials, suppression hearings and jury trials.
