About me

After working exclusively in family law for the past 5 years at the Denver-based firm of Litvak Litvak Mehrtens Epstein & Carlton, P.C., Stephanie moved to Aspen to join the firm of Oates Knezevich Gardenswartz Kelly & Morrow P.C., where she will expand her practice areas to include trust & estates, a goal of Stephanie's since she began pursuing an advanced legal degree in taxation a few years ago. 

Although primarily residing and working in Aspen, Stephanie will continue to practice family law in the Denver metro area.


While at Litvak Litvak Mehrtens Epstein & Carlton P.C.,  Ms. Holder and the others in the firm specialized in complex litigation, arbitration, mediation, and family law appeals. Ms. Holder gained a reputation for having "moxie" and became known for her tenacity, sharp wit, professionalism, and for having poise under pressure. At Litvak, Ms. Holder and seven of the firm's other attorneys were named Colorado's "Super Lawyers" in 2013 as chosen by their peers and through the independent research of Law & Politics. Ms. Holder was given the elite distinction of being named a "Rising Star," an honor that is limited to only 2.5% of the attorneys in the state.
