Stephanie Steele | Steele Law Firm


Firm Summary

I moved to Marietta, Georgia after law school in 2004. Throughout my career, regardless of my area of practice, my goal has been to educate clients so that we (as a team) could determine and implement the best plan for their situation and their life. I love building and creating. That includes building relationships with people and families and it includes creating a unique plan for each client that supports and protects their long-term goals. My clients are not commodities. I truly care about them and want to know what’s going on in their lives – beyond the four walls of my office.

I have significant experience in estate planning, probate, and prenuptial/postnuptial agreements.

Whether in court or developing an estate plan, I employ a balance of kindness and toughness, dependability, and knowledge to achieve the best outcomes for my clients.

I look forward to meeting you and asking, “What can we build together?”
