Paralegal

Biographical

Stephanie entered the legal field as a file clerk, but her insatiable curiosity, attention to detail, and passion for document analysis quickly had her assuming paralegal duties and working alongside some of Wisconsin’s top litigators. Now, Stephanie joins LLG with over 12 years of litigation experience on the defense side, ranging from event reporting and initial assessment of risk through trial and appellate proceedings. During her time as a paralegal, she has worked on cases in a variety of jurisdictions, both Federal and State, throughout the U.S.

Stephanie’s warmth, compassion, and understanding make her an invaluable asset for clients throughout the life of a case. She appreciates the stress and overwhelm that litigation can bring, and she takes pride in her ability to translating “legalese” and complex issues into easily-understandable terms – a process which many clients find makes the process less daunting.

In addition to her bedside manner, Stephanie’s strong analytical skills, tenacity, and ability to stay cool under pressure have made her a valued team member throughout her career.
