About me

Stephanie is from Knoxville, Tennessee and a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University (B.S. Political Science, with a double-minor in English and Philosophy). 

She proudly attended Florida Coastal School of Law where she concentrated in the school's Family Law program.  Ms. Ross was admitted to the Florida Bar in September 2009, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida in April of 2010, and the North Carolina Bar in September 2012. She is currently an active attorney in her community as a member of the American Bar Association and the Mecklenburg County Bar Association.



Ms. Ross advocates for the rights of her clients, and makes great efforts to fully connect with the client's needs - financial, emotional and litigation-based concerns are balanced to achieve results.


Stephanie is an active young professional that takes part in civic and charitable event-planning to benefit the world around her.  In 2010, she was honored as a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Honoree at the Annual Single Greatest Night event.  Her efforts in obtaining essential funding for the organization have included entertaining trivia nights and participation in many of the other honorees' events to provide funding to scientific research and medical care for those suffering from the life-shortening disease.
