Journey to Family Law
Stacey has always wanted to be a lawyer – even before she really knew what they did. She originally wanted to be an adoptions attorney but ended up enjoying the family law practice. Her divorce after 19 years of marriage took about 2 years and was an extremely emotional, stressful experience. She and her ex fought over custody and assets, but the most important things that got her through it were friends and family, who reminded her that she is strong enough to get through anything.
Favorite Types of Cases
Stacey likes to work with clients who are deeply involved with their cases, so that they can share thoughts, information and ideas together as a team. Sharing goals and creating a mutual understanding about possible outcomes is another one of her strong suits.
