Biography

Time and time again during her career, Stephanie has been praised by colleagues and clientele alike that she is an old soul of sorts, wise beyond her years. Stephanie was raised by a single mom in Queens, NY who helped her to grow and develop a strong sense of self and independence from an early age. Her early experiences have also motivated her to pursue a career in family law, where she could fight for the rights of other families. 


Perspective is critical to Stephanie, as she believes one of the vital skills she has acquired thus far is to be able to step back and see the entire picture when approaching any client, case, conflict, or family. As she works toward a matrimonial certification and walks a path toward practicing as a court approved mediator and parent coordinator, Stephanie values each and every step along the route as an indispensable part of her professional and personal development. 


Clients sense Stephanie’s high levels of empathy and compassion right away, as well as her quiet strength. Stephanie takes the time to know every client as an individual, creating an atmosphere of openness and honesty. While she is focused on each client’s case, she is intent on knowing the entire person; such as, “what else is going on in their lives besides why they are consulting with her.” Stephanie feels she can better serve her clients’ needs by connecting more deeply through genuine interest and understanding context, setting appropriate expectations, and finding the best solution under all of the circumstances.
