Attorney Stephanie S. Pinskey is a life-long Lorain County resident that is dedicated to serving the area's legal needs. Stephanie graduated from Marion L. Steele High School in Amherst.  After high school she was employed as a manager at several McDonald's restaurants throughout Lorain and Cuyahoga counties. After leaving McDonald's Corp., Stephanie proudly followed in her father and grandfather's footsteps at Ford Motor Company, where she built the award-winning Econoline and the Mariner/Escape vehicle lines for seven years. As the hours at Ford were long, it took Stephanie the entire seven years she worked there to complete her General Education Associate's Degree at Lorain County Commnity College. Stephanie eventually accepted the educational buyout that Ford offered, which enabled her to pursue the career that she had always dreamed of... She obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Urban Affairs Management from The Maxine-Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University and graduated summa cum laude from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Stephanie is licensed to practice law in the state of Ohio.


Stephanie and her long-time sweetheart Jason have been married since 2005. They reside in Amherst with their motley crew of dogs. In her spare time, Stephanie enjoys shooting a good game of pool, riding her CBR600RR, and dancing the night away.


Stephanie is a proud member of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Ohio State Bar Association, the Lorain County Bar Association, and the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association. Stephanie is also certified as a Guardian ad Litem by The Supreme Court of Ohio Judicial College.
