In 2007 he opened his solo law firm, W. Stephen Geeding, Attorney at Law, LLC. Steve was born in Washington D.C., but raised in southwestern MO, where his people and his roots are. He attended Missouri Southern State College, before going on to receive his Juris Doctorate in 1996.

Currently, Steve is a member of Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Missouri Family Law List Serve, a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and the North America Hunting Club. Steve has resided in McDonald County for the last 33 years with his wife Linda. Their blended family has 6 children and 14 grandchildren. He has written and published a trilogy of fantasy and time travel, with a creational theme, based around actual events happening on Earth today. He has published a small book of Christmas poems and short stories. Steve is editing a fifth book, set in 1822 New Mexico, the first in a new fictional series of time travel, is working on the second book in that series, and is attempting to format a full volume of poetry amassed over the last thirty plus years. He has also finished a children’s book, which is currently being illustrated. Steve’s logo is the word Solitaire, in his words “a diamond in the rough.” Why Solitaire you might ask and his reply would be: Solitaire is my life, my logo. It is best explained by this: Born in Washington DC to an FBI agent, I moved back home to Missouri at an early age, grew up, married, more than once, raised my kids and bought a place on the river I named Solitaire. It has kept me sane and is truly my diamond in the rough.
