Serving individuals and families throughout Marshall and Madison counties and the surrounding areas, Stephen devotes his practice exclusively to family law, particularly as it relates to contentious child custody and child support matters.

Early in his legal career, Stephen was fortunate to work under the tutelage of a former juvenile judge, where he gained invaluable insight into the state's complicated child custody laws. This experience has served him well as he advocates on behalf of his clients who are coming to terms with their changing family dynamics and reaching child custody agreements that will serve their families for years to come. He also has extensive experience with interstate child custody, fathers' rights, grandparents' rights, third-party custody, and other similar matters.

Moreover, Stephen has in-depth knowledge of juvenile law, and he has handled numerous cases involving child dependency, child abduction, child abuse and neglect, and other issues.

A 2006 graduate of Birmingham-Southern College, Stephen received his master's degree from The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and his Juris Doctor from the University of Alabama School of Law that same year. He is an active member of his legal community, and he previously served as president of the Marshall County Bar Association. He is also a member of the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association's Huntsville Young Lawyers Section and the American Bar Association.
