Stephen Longo

Personal Injury Attorney

Stephen A. Longo is a native of New Jersey who, before settling in Colorado in 2012, also lived in California, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. Regardless of the location, Stephen prides himself on taking a personal approach to each and every client he represents, and firmly believes that the legal profession is an effective and unique way to help people. “Each client and each case is all very different. It brings together its own unique circumstances and unique story. As part of every case you need bring that story and tell it.”

Stephen chose McDivitt Law Firm for the embodiment of the firm’s core values. “It’s easy to see [our core values], they are on the website, we include them in our advertisements, but if you were to come in here or work here, or be part of our team, you’d see they are evident in everything we do.”
