He worked at the Office of the Attorney General representing state agencies in court and then at the Public Utility Commission of Texas, as both an administrative law judge and assistant executive director, before starting his own practice in 2000. Steve retired at the end of 2019. He has also moonlighted as a film critic for the Austin Chronicle since 1982.
