Steve McGaver has been with GRGB for almost twenty years, starting out as a messenger and, at one time or another taking on almost every available role in the firm. He now serves as a Partner. Attorney McGaver is a 2006 graduate of Marquette University Law School (cum laude). As the son of a retired Milwaukee Police Officer he brings to the firm a level-headed and practical approach to problem solving that serves his clients well.

His practice areas include a diverse mix of litigation cases including civil, criminal, municipal, health, employment and white collar defense. His passion for practicing law is born out of a strong desire to serve people in his hometown community. "I care about Milwaukee. It is my home and I want to leave my mark here. I want to help people and make it a better place," Steve states.

His skill and drive is not only apparent to his clients, it has also caught the attention of his law colleagues. Steve has been recognized as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers for the last 10 years, an honor bestowed on only 2.5 percent of attorneys in Wisconsin.

Steve also enjoys cooking, boating, fishing, watersports, volunteering at his children’s schools, and spending time with family. Steve is an avid ice hockey player. Having played virtually his entire life, he still skates several nights of the week for numerous area teams and coaches his children’s youth teams.
