About Stephanie

Stephanie is an attorney, wife to an attorney, community volunteer, and a mother of three boys – twins, age 8 and a mischievous 5-year-old. Born and raised in Pensacola, and after 13 years in Dallas, Stephanie, her husband Frank, and her family returned home to Pensacola where she focuses on adoption and child-related issues.

Stephanie graduated from Vanderbilt University with her B.A. (2003) and Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University with her J.D. (2006). After law school, Stephanie was a commercial litigator with Winstead PC in Dallas, Texas.
In Dallas, before specializing in child advocacy law, Stephanie represented abused and neglected children as the courts decided adoption, placement, and parental rights matters. She also served as a supervising attorney for the Children’s Advocacy Legal Clinic at the SMU Dedman School of Law and as a contract research attorney for Texas Lawyers for Children. She is admitted to the Texas Bar and the Florida Bar.
Stephanie’s love for the field of adoption comes from

having her own family. She explains, “I look at my family – at my own children – and see the joy they have and the joy they bring us and it drives me to help others have that same feeling, that same happiness that comes with a family.” Stephanie believes that, “specializing in adoption is like a calling for me. I love it, I enjoy it, and I need it – I need how it makes me feel.”
Stephanie finds time to volunteer and serves on the Board of Directors for Student Leadership University, Baptist Hospital Inc. of Pensacola, the Northwest Florida YMCA, Take Stock in Children Leadership Council, and World Help. She is a 7th grade Sunday School teacher at First Baptist Church of Pensacola.
