Growing Up

Raised in Baltimore City and Baltimore County Steve attended public schools and both the City of Baltimore and Baltimore County. He knows his community. His dad was killed in WW ll so early on he knew what it meant to work hard and help his family.

Steve’s brother is a professor at New York University and his sister a special education teacher.

Family:

Steve is married with four children. He has two children from his first marriage and he and his present wife, a lawyer in the Attorney General’s office of the State of Maryland also have tow children.

Legal Background

Steve is a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law. While attending law school, in addition to working full-time in the retail world, he held numerous law clerk positions and in fact was the first Law Clerk in the States Attorneys Office in Baltimore County where he drafted all of their criminal indictments.

Upon graduation from law school, the States Attorneys Office recruited Steve. Unlike the vast majority of new hires at this position Steve was assigned to the Circuit Court level, and for three years prosecuted major felony cases. During this time he prosecuted hundreds of cases and tried well over fifty jury trials.

Upon leaving the States Attorneys Office, Steve then went to work with well-known defense attorney, Russell J. White. Mr. White, knowing a good thing, shortly thereafter formed the law firm of White & Miles. After several years, Steve struck out on his own forming The Law Offices of Stephen L. Miles. For the next twenty years, Steve grew his firm into one of the largest and most highly regarded personal injury and criminal defense firms in the state of Maryland. In 1999 Steve merged his firm with the law firm of Saiontz and Kirk and the law firm became known as Saiontz, Kirk, & Miles.

Steve, missing the close personal contact that he first experienced with his clients in his early years, decided to resign from Saiontz, Kirk, and Miles, and reopened The Law Offices of Stephen L. Miles.
