In addition, she serves as a mediator in employment disputes, and as an independent investigator of complaints of workplace discrimination and harassment.

Outside of her practice, Steinfield is Treasurer-elect on the Board of Governors for the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers; is a Fellow of the American, Texas and Dallas Bar Foundations; and is a Trustee with the Texas International Theatrical Arts Society.
