Robert and I are very pleased with Mr. Hugh Stephens and all that he has done for us. From the first moment we spoke, we sensed that though Mr. Stephens exhibits sharp business acumen, he cares deeply about his clients and he has a huge heart.

I tried to get others to help me with this claim, and it wasn"t until I hired Mr. Stephens that things started happening. I would recommend any one to get in touch with him . I would go to him again, if i ever needed to.

Mr. Stephens was able to simplify an otherwise complicated lengthy process (DEEOIC) to file an initial claim as well as a claim for impairment benefits.

I had other attorneys hired in Cortez, Colorado and Grand Jct., Colorado to assist me with receiving my uranium claim, but they were not successful. I was advised by an employee of CNS of Stephens & Stephens, LLP good work. I contacted them & they took my case It was settled very quickly. I have been very pleased with this group & would advise others of their prompt service. I would recommend them to others. Respectfully, Frankie Knuckles

My family used Stephen’s and Stephen’s for a settlement case. We were extremely pleased with all they did. They were very professional, easy to get a hold of, and invaluable when it came to answering questions and handling complicated Department of Labor issues and forms. They also did everything in a very timely manner. I have already recommended them to other people.

I have been represented by Hugh Stevens for several years now, He and his staff has made everything so easy for me. I had lung cancer from working in the uranium processing industry, they have opened so many doors for me and made dealing with DOL so much easier. They always answer my questions in a very timely manner. I have referred several other people to him and he has been able to get them through this process also. There are benefits that I was not aware of that he has brought to my attention and been able to lead me through the process of obtaining them. I would most highly recommend him to lead anyone through this process.

When I first contacted Stephens & Stephens I was at the end of my rope with DOL. Hough and his staff got me on track and handled everything with DOL and just made this process so easy. Do not know where I'd be with out them. They are able to communicate at a layman's level and understand the client. Would strongly recommend this firm.

Our initial conversation with Mr. Stephens was productive & reassuring. His previous experience with similar cases was obvious and very helpful, in both asking us specific questions for clarification & also addressing our own questions. Breanna is also a great asset to their team.

I have referred several friends to Hugh Stephens and they were more satisfied than they ever expected. I would refer him with confidence to anyone in need. I trust when he speaks for me, for example, in court. He is a good communicator and a deep thinker. He is well respected in his profession. He handles environmental law, injury law, and medical malpractice. He is tactful and direct and knows what he is doing. He knows the legal briar patches well.

Superior Steel Co.

 
Also Known As: Copper Weld Inc., Lot and Block 102J210
State: Pennsylvania
Location: Carnegie
Time Period: AWE 1952-1957; Residual Radiation 1958-March 1, 2011
Facility Type: Atomic Weapons Employer

Facility Description: Superior Steel produced uranium strip and rolled uranium slabs for use by the Savannah River Laboratory. In 1955, for example, they hot rolled twenty-five tons of uranium into strip.

During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.

*Site Description:
The former Superior Steel Site is located in an industrial complex at 500 Superior Street in Scott Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, (latitude 40.398569, longitude – 80.0096351) about 8 km (5 mi) southwest of downtown Pittsburgh. The Superior Steel site is located in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 3. The 25-acre site originally was occupied solely by the Superior Steel Company and now consists of several separately owned manufacturing, storage, and office buildings. The site is bounded on the north, west, and south by Chartiers Creek and on the east by Superior Street. The building that housed the uranium processing facilities (Building Complex Number 23) is now owned by Superbolt, Inc., a manufacturer of mechanical stud and bolt tensioners.

Superbolt Building Complex Number 23 consists of five interconnected steel-frame warehouses with metal roofs with corrugated steel siding. The floor construction varies from area to area and is a combination of poured concrete, brick, and bare earth. The building has a few windows, several garage-type doors, some standard door entrances, and various roof ventilator fans. Superior Steel used three of the five areas in Building 23 to process AEC-related material. Superbolt Inc. had previously leased the potentially contaminated areas to other businesses for use as storage space and limited light industrial activity. However, Superbolt Inc., discontinued this once the NRC identified residual radioactivity in Building 23. On August 29, 2006 during a site visit to the former SSC complex, representatives from Superbolt Inc. indicated that the northern third of Bldg. 23B is leased to a trucking company. This industrial complex, including Building 23, sustained extensive flood damage on September 18, 2004, when a discharge of 15,900 cubic feet per second occurred on Chartiers Creek (NRC 2006).
