Tampa and St Pete Business Lawyer & Attorney

Get to know our legal team

Originally From
• Bariloche, Argentina

• Juris Doctor – Georgetown University Law Center
• University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


Steve Maggi began to counsel with our firm in early 2021 in order to help international businesses enter into US markets and to work with foreign investors interested in starting a business in the US. Although he has a wealth of experience in corporate, financial, and real estate matters, Maggi’s heart lies in immigration law. Now a naturalized citizen, Maggi was born in Argentina and raised in New York, which has provided him with an acute, deeply personal understanding of our country’s immigration process, as well as the unique opportunities to be found within our borders. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received his Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center in 2001. 

Beyond FL Patel Law
Much like Attorney Patel, Attorney Maggi now manages his own practice, the SMA Law Firm. Originally founded in Buenos Aries, the SMA Law Firm now principally resides in New York, where Maggi and his team help clients obtain investor, tourist, family business, and employment-based visas to the United States so that they can participate in the American Dream. Partnering with FL Patel Law has allowed him to reach a wider range of international entrepreneurs than ever before, and our mutual clients are thankful for his knowledge and professional talent. Before launching his own firm, he was employed by law firms and immigration clinics across the country. Maggi is particularly proud of the time when, while still attending Georgetown, he won an asylum case for two citizens from Togo.
