Since joining the firm in 1994, Stephanie has worked on a wide variety of cases representing clients in employment and personal injury litigation, as well as commercial litigation and business disputes. She also represents clients in matters involving misappropriation of trade secrets, noncompetition contracts, Consumer Protection Act claims, unfair competition issues, contract disputes and consults on matters of legal ethics.
In her commercial litigation practice, Stephanie focuses on complex business disputes, disputes between members of closely held companies and trust and estate litigation. She represents corporations, closely held businesses, fiduciaries as well as individual parties involved in these types of matters. She has successfully represented parties in their roles as shareholders, LLC members, personal representatives, beneficiaries, and heirs. Stephanie has successfully litigated on behalf of executive shareholders forced out of corporations, protected LLC members from attempts to seize control or assets, successfully admitted a newly found Taiwanese Will in Mandarin on behalf of the Personal Representative and defending it against claims by the surviving spouse who was largely disinherited. Most recently she successfully fought on behalf of Trust beneficiaries to prevent significant changes to Trust administration and management.
Stephanie is married, with two grown children and she enjoys spending her free time reading, writing and traveling. Someday she’d like to travel to Egypt to pursue her childhood dream of discovering buried treasure. Even if she doesn’t find any, it will make a great story.
