Steven Drakos recognized as 'Best of the Best' in Lake Orion

April 20, 2011 - Mr. Drakos is honored and humbled by being recognized with this award. He has been recognized in the past by the Oakland County Bar Association and was awarded the prestigious Frances R. Avadenka Memorial Award for his contributions to the community of Oakland County.

He has also been recognized for his Pro-Bono legal services to the underprivileged.

Steven is a graduate of Lake Orion Schools and the Detroit College of Law. He takes pride in his community and gives legal counsel to many non-profit organizations. He enjoys serving the youth of our community and assists the Honorable Julie A. Nicholson with the Court in the Schools Program. In addition, he is founder and president of The Father Sam Scholarship Fund which awards young people who wish to enter the seminary. This scholarship will expand to Naples, Florida where he will be attending in an advisory capacity during the week of April 25th.

Mr. Drakos is married to Teresa and they have two young twin boys. Mr. Drakos observed, "It is our desire to raise our twins in this excellent small and beautiful community. This is the type of community that fosters love and support for each other."

As an attorney he takes pride in assisting his clients to the best of his ability.

Mr. Drakos stated, "I take pride in associating my law office with the best attorneys in Oakland and Lapeer Counties. If I personally cannot help an individual I will find the correct attorney who can." Mr. Drakos observed that people forget that "Attorney and Counselor" means just that, an attorney is also given the responsibility of being a "Counselor". In other words it is important to understand that people often are traumatized, under stress or have an alcohol or drug addiction issue that needs to be addressed. "It is my job not only to handle the legal matter but to find the right medical professional or counselor who can assist the client."

His colleagues have given him a "BV Distinguished" rating score afforded by Martindale Hubbell who rates attorneys. Mr. Drakos was given this rating for his legal ability and ethical standards in the legal community.

Mr. Drakos states "I have been practicing law for over 23 years and I look forward to continuing in this profession. It seems the practice of law keeps you in touch with the people in my community who I respect and love."
