As the daughter to an inventor and a counselor, Stacy can bring creative problem solving designed specifically for your needs to achieve the best results. Her goal with any legal need is to first understand you – what are your concerns, needs, dreams and motives? Cookie cutter legal documents and forms from the internet do not meet your needs and do not answer your questions. She designs your legal strategy for you and her team brings that legal strategy to life.
Stacy’s practice has been built on your referrals. As does any professional practice, new or old, she appreciates the support and respect of clients and business associates in many fields. She intends to continue to earn your support by providing the highest quality legal services.
