Bio

After clerking in the Federal Court and then working for a large firm for a few years, Steve started the Legal Clinics in 1978. The Legal Clinics, which eventually became known as Borofsky, Amodeo-Vickery & Bandazian, was the first law firm in the state of New Hampshire to concentrate on serving the legal needs of middle-income people.

During the past forty years, Steve has developed a broad, general practice with a concentration in many areas of the law. His practice focuses in Personal Injury, Divorce and Family matters, Corporations, Business and Contracts, Probate (Wills, Trusts and Estates) and general litigation.

Steve has always been very active in local and state bar associations. Currently, he is a member of the New Hampshire Bar Foundation IOLTA Grants Committee. In the past, he has served on various New Hampshire Bar Association Committees, is a past president of the Manchester Bar Association, a former Board member and former Vice President of New Hampshire Legal Assistance, and a former Board member and Chair of the Board of the ACLU of New Hampshire (formerly the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union).

For several years, Steve volunteered as a Superior Court Mediator and ultimately received an award for his extraordinary contribution to the public and judicial system. He has mediated more than 100 Rule 170 Mediations in Hillsborough, Rockingham, and Merrimack Superior Courts. In addition, he served on the Superior Court’s Committee to rewrite the Court’s mediation rules, the New Hampshire Supreme Court Committee that re-wrote the Rules of Professional Conduct and the New Hampshire Supreme Court’s Advertising Committee.

As part of Steve’s long-time service to the ACLU of New Hampshire, he is also as a member of that organization’s Legal Panel and has handled a number of civil rights cases during the course of his legal career.
