Stephen Brown graduated with honors from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Prior to law school, he earned dual bachelors degrees at The Florida State University covering three majors: Political Science, Social Science and Environmental Studies.

 

At the University of Florida Levin College of Law, Stephen participated in the Virgil Hawkins Family Law Clinic where he helped several clients navigate through various family law issues. He also participated in an externship at Florida Institutional Legal Services assisting inmates in the Florida Department of Corrections obtain various services upon their release to help prevent recidivism. Additionally, he assisted research for a federal class action lawsuit against the Florida Department of Corrections alleging inhumane treatment of many inmates.

 

After law school, Stephen accepted an appointment to become an Assistant State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida. As an Assistant State Attorney, his focus was to develop his trial skills to gain litigation experience. He tried 75 cases in County, Circuit, and Juvenile Court and resolved more than 2000 cases short of trial in fewer than four years at the State Attorney's Office.

 

Outside of work, Stephen enjoys the great lifestyle that Central Florida has to offer. In his spare time (however slight) you could find him at a local bookstore, themepark, restaurant, or at the dog park with his Italian Greyhound, Rocco. His philosophy is to enjoy life and he'd love to help you sort out your legal problems so that you can de-stress and better enjoy your life.

Wonderful Representation!
Stephen Brown helped me with my divorce case. Was very helpful, had excellent communication and I always felt well represented in court. Every conversation felt genuine, especially when he would point out things I needed to change on, but in the end, I could tell he was just looking for my best interests. Thank you, Brown & Rice, PA, will definitely be calling you if I ever need to be represented again in the future.

Custody and Child Support
When I hired Mr. Brown, I was very confident in whom I trusted to deal with my custody/ child support case. He was always on the ball on what came toward him there was no lack of effort nor intimadition. Mr. Brown is very professional, always willing to answer your questions. I have full custody of my daughter and I thank him for all his hard work, being a male and having custody of a daughter is very rare but with the knowledge of Mr. Brown it was done. I must say I did not have to micromanage him as he is always kept me up to date on my case and gave it his all. If you are looking for a good, reasonable, strong willed, tough attorney stop your search here Mr. Brown is that attorney. Thank you for everything Mr. Brown.

Exceeding Expations
Stephen Brown helped me through a very dificcult time with resourcefulness and compassion. He was there for me late at night and early in the morning. His handling of my case was very professional. His knowledge and dedication to the case made me feel confident of the outcome. Because of his hard work all charges against me were dropped and I have been able to get on with my life. Thank you, Stephen, for all you do!

Competent and Effective Legal Counsel
I needed some assistance with some child support related issues that I was having. Attorney Brown helped me to get all of my legal affairs handled. I also needed a modification in support since my circumstances had changed. He was able to get my support payments lowered to a affordable amount for me. I highly recommend Stephen Brown to handle any legal issues that you might have. I only wish i would have handled this sooner instead of dealing with the stress for so long. GREAT LEGAL ATTORNEY!!!

The Attorney's Who Care, Really!
I found the attorney's at Brown and Rice very knowledgeable and helpful. They were able to answer all my questions and put me at ease. Having limited knowledge of the law, it was a great comfort having someone with me every step of the way. They were very good at keeping me updated with my case. Never once did I feel ignored or forgotten. I'm so great full for all they're help.

Best Attorney In Orange/Osceola Area
Attorney Stephen Brown is absolutely hands down the best attorney in the central Florida area. He is very knowledgeable and continuously updated me on my case I never had to chase down an answer or information. He always responded promptly to my calls and/or messages. At the most difficult time in my life I had little knowledge of the legal system and found myself feeling confused and hopeless. I was amazed at his level of professionalism and yet he is very compassionate, understanding, and respectful. He walked me through the legal system seamlessly I had a great outcome and I have used him for other legal services. He comes highly recommend from myself and my family.
