Stephanie Easterling believes her role as a family law attorney is to guide and assist her clients through the countless challenges and risks associated with family law matters. It is important to keep in mind these legal issues also affect clients in a myriad of ways–including psychologically, physically, and emotionally.
Stephanie does not believe she necessarily chose family law, but, rather, that the practice of family law chose her. She began her legal career in Arkansas and Oklahoma in 2004 and 2005, respectively. Her practice predominately consisted of civil litigation, as well as handling appellate issues. But after representing a former college classmate in obtaining custody of his son, Stephanie realized her legal knowledge and communication skills were better served by representing individuals dealing with family law challenges. Stephanie's practice has been limited to practicing Arizona family law since 2012.
Stephanie grew up in Central California and moved to Arkansas in 1992, where she lived until 2011. She obtained her education–Bachelor of Arts and Juris Doctor–from the University of Arkansas. Woo Pig Sooie! But Stephanie missed the sunshine of the West, and after a 3 day visit to Arizona, she fell in love with the area. Stephanie relocated to the Valley of the Sun in 2011.
After hours, Stephanie enjoys cooking, throwing impromptu parties, hanging out with her four rescue dogs, and keeping up with her sports teams–the Arkansas Razorbacks, San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants.
