Steven Lefkoff

Principal & Founding Attorney

Knowledgeable and Experienced Attorney

As the principal and founding attorney of Lefkoff Law, Steven takes a human-centered approach to his cases by focusing on providing sound legal advice with care and empathy.

While he has experience advising and representing clients in various disputes, Steven specializes in representing clients in the Motor Vehicle industry and Georgia Fair Business Practices Act litigation, as well as Small Claims training.

Steven knows how to analyze the legality of fines levied by the Governor’s Office of Consumer Protection against motor vehicle dealers and has negotiated settlements and dismissals, saving clients hundreds of thousands of dollars. He has also defeated employee claims of harassment, unequal pay, and discrimination before the Georgia Department of Labor.

Aside from his casework, Steven also trains business owners and individuals on the Magistrate Court process for cases in which they feel empowered to represent themselves. He teaches his clients how to navigate the legal arena– from filing paperwork to presenting their cases in court, and everything in between.

Given his work as an attorney and educator, Steven has been recognized as a top lawyer in Georgia and was named a “Super Lawyers Rising Star” by Super Lawyers Magazine and Atlanta Magazine for 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. Only 2.5% of all lawyers in Georgia are selected as a “Rising Star.” Steven was also awarded Georgia Legal Innovator of the Year and has been featured in the Fulton County Daily Report newspaper for his practice and experience.

Steven is a member of the State Bar of Georgia and is licensed to appear before the Supreme Court of Georgia, the Georgia Court of Appeals, the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, as well as the Superior, State, and Magistrate Courts throughout Georgia. Before founding Lefkoff Law, Steven was an Associate Attorney with Jacobs & King, LLC where he supported clients in civil litigation, dispute resolution, corporate representation, and independent motor vehicle dealer representation.

During speaking engagements, Steven’s passion for the law and its intricacies are evident. His unique delivery and flow of ideas make the law informative, fun, and easy for audiences to understand. His specialized knowledge of the Motor Vehicle industry and the Georgia Fair Business Practices Act make him the ideal speaker for continuing education seminars and conference-style professional development. Steven recently spoke about “The Fair Business Practices Act and Running Your Dealership” to over 500 dealers at GIADA’s continuing education course. He has also given talks on “The Fair Business Practices Act: The Laws Governing Transactions Between and Consumers in Georgia” and “Representing Clients in Magistrate Court” at seminars for the Atlanta Bar Association.

A graduate with a degree in Finance from the University of Illinois and a law degree from the University of Georgia, Steven is committed to creating long-term relationships with his clients based on mutual respect and trust. He will help you understand your situation and provide the best options for resolving it efficiently and effectively. A proud Georgia native, Steven currently resides in Atlanta with his wife and two children.
