"You looked at me, and told me to come out. I hated you for it. But you were right. So, now I'm looking at you and saying slow down, enjoy your life."
―Steven Benowitz to Jeri Hogarth[src]

Steven Benowitz is one of the establishing founders of the law firm Hogarth, Chao & Benowitz.


Award Ceremony

"Look, we're your partners. This scandal stains our good names, too."
―Steven Benowitz to Jeri Hogarth[src]

With Jeri Hogarth accepting an award and give her speech, Benowitz and Linda Chao both expressed their disapproval with dealing with their partner's legal situation over her former secretary Pam's accusations.[2]

Medical Disclosures

"Look, Jeri. I, for one, am very sorry. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. But we have a fiduciary duty to protect the firm. You'll have a standard window in which to negotiate the terms of your severance."
"There will be no negotiation, there will be no severance because I'm not leaving."
"Please reconsider... or we'll have to force you out."
―Steven Benowitz and Jeri Hogarth[src]

A Night at Chocolate Bar

"What is this? Who are you?"
"Someone who, if he was doing his job, would use all this to blackmail you. But I'm not gonna do it. It's too ugly, even for me."
―Steven Benowitz and Malcolm Ducasse[src]

Benowitz visited Whiskers and sat a the counter for drinks. He met Malcolm Ducasse, who instructed that he should return him to his wife and confess his sexuality rather than sneak there. Later, the two left the bar and were insulted.[3]

Final Negotiations

"Relax, Steven, I'm not gonna out you. But honestly, if you would just come out, you would be so much less vulnerable."
Jeri Hogarth to Steven Benowitz[src]

Benowitz and Linda Chao met with Jeri Hogarth during one afternoon in the conference room, in which they planned to settle Hogarth's severance. As they conversed on the increase in the amount paid, Benowitz was presented with a video recorded prior, in which Chao confessed to Malcolm Ducasse that she had been engaged in illegal activities with the firm's funds. He was also threatened by Hogarth, though she agreed not to publicly speak on his sexuality.[1]

Poaching from Hogarth & Associates

"I felt I should deliver these personally. Client transfer papers."
"You're poaching one of my clients."
"Actually, we're poaching two-thirds of your business."
"Rand. You're stealing Rand Enterprises."
