About Me


I have wanted to be in the courtroom since middle school. I joined the Mock Trial team while attending Fort Mill High School and have been a litigator ever since. After graduating high school I attended the university of South Carolina –Upstate.


Finishing up my education I decided to return to my hometown area by enrolling in the Charlotte School of Law. There I was fortunate enough to captain the school’s trial team and led them to become one of the top four teams in the country. Having worked in the Mecklenburg County Public Defender’s office and Union County District Attorney’s office I am more than qualified to handle both your criminal and civil matters.

  • Chelsea Michelle Chapman

    I had the pleasure of working for Stephen right after I graduated from law school. He is an excellent litigator who understands the law and knows how to zealously argue your case. Not all attorneys are comfortable being in the courtroom but Stephen does not fall under that category. If you are looking for a dedicated and competent attorney to represent your interests, then look no further.
