Meet Steven Gassert, Our Newest Associate Attorney at Smith Freed Eberhard

Please join us in welcoming Steven Gassert, our newest associate attorney at Smith Freed Eberhard.

Steven is based in our Portland office and will be joining Paul Sheely’s team, focusing on construction defect litigation.

Steven has a diverse legal background and has experience practicing construction defect litigation, real estate law, and condo and homeowners association law. Prior to joining Smith Freed Eberhard, Steven worked as assistant vice president and general counsel at a health care cost containment company, where he served as the company’s primary legal officer. Prior to that, he worked at a class action and mass tort solutions company, where his primary focus was construction defect litigation.

Steven is originally from Pittsburgh, PA, but moved to Washington DC for school where he lived until moving to Portland in 2014. Steven has two daughters, meaning he is outnumbered three to one at home. He loves to cook, so he is always trying new recipes, even though his daughters always hate them (unless it’s chicken nuggets or mac and cheese). You could also say that he plays a lot of golf (at least once a week).
