I was referred to Stephanie by a friend that worked with Stephanie is a child custody case. While my case was a divorce, I liked the feedback I received from my friend and I set up a consultation. Without a doubt, that was a pivotal and positive decision on my part.
After months of working with a mediator to attempt to agree on child support, property, spousal support, etc., it was clear there were going to be some sticky financial issues that looked like they would be decided by the courts. I heard it over and over from many sources that, nobody will like the result of what the judge will decide. I'm glad I considered this.
I interviewed a few firms before I contacted the Newton Plont firm. After the initial consultation, I knew the same day that I wanted Stephanie in my corner. Stephanie took careful time to understand my situation. Stephanie is personable and empathetic, as well as highly professional and very much to the point. Stephanie asked questions to make sure she understood specific details that were factors in my case that I didn't consider. This to me was key.
After a few weeks of meetings and e-mails, of considering (exhausting) all the possible and potential options, Stephanie helped me come up with creative options to propose. Initially, I was doubtful the options would be considered however, Stephanie's view of the offers combined with her insight, expertise, and experience, I was convinced the offer would be accepted. I was right. The offer was accepted and the judgement of divorce was signed the same day.
If you need to hire an attorney or if you're even thinking about it, contact Stephanie or the Newton Plont firm. Save yourself time and start with the best.
To whomever is reading this, I look forward to reading your words of praise of Stephanie in the future!

Stephanie took on my case, and it was a very difficult one. I had wanted to move my 5 year old daughter to my home state of North Carolina after splitting up with her dad, who is a Michigan native. Stephanie did everything in her power, by the law, to help me achieve this. She is extremely empathetic, intelligent, well-spoken and knowledgeable. Although I was not able to move my daughter out of state due to the law, I would recommend her to anyone, and I would absolutely hire her again. She worked tirelessly with me for months and was always very honest about the potential outcome. She's a great person, and a great lawyer.

I initially had a consultation with Stephanie regarding child support in a non-marital situation. I ended up using her services for the child support paperwork and she helped me with what needed to be done from the initial filing to the final paperwork. I could not have done this without her help and her fee was very reasonable. I highly recommend her services!!

I can not say enough positive things about Stephanie. She was completely dedicated to Benjamin's case from our very first meeting. Stephanie not only had to deal with a poor parent but an very uncooperative attorney. Every obstacle that was tried to derail Benjamin's case she handle with professionalism and competence.
When it called for either offensive or defensive strategy it worked perfectly, and all I had to do was follow her lead. Stephanie was always more than willing to talk with me and to regain my focus on the big picture. Like I stated the other parties attorney made it very difficult and tried to derail us at every opportunity, but Stephanie always reassured me "shes got this." and.....she DID.
I am very happy to say that Benjamin now lives with me.
If you are looking for a professional attorney that will fight for your child, then there is no need to look any further. Hire her and let her go to work.
Stephanie....you have a bright future and unlimited amount of children will only benefit.

Stephanie went above and beyond my expectations as my attourney. Always having my best interest in mind, she was very protective of my rights and taught me throughout the process how to start thinking on my own two feet and stand up for what I deserved instead of just viewing myself as the victim. When I would make a suggestion for something I wanted to gain she would ask for that and then some with all of the confidence in the world and walk away with it. I never felt nervous with her representing me, I felt as though we were the powerful ones. She always handled herself in the utmost professional manner, yet had a personal soft spirit to calm me down so many times when I was overwhelmed. I wouldn't trade her for the world. She, hands down made the most difficult phase of my life as smooth and as worry free as possible. I always knew I was in good hands with her representing me. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or custody settlement. She is worth her weight in gold.

Working with Stephanie was easy! I was so unsure of everything and Stephanie took the time to sit with me and explain things until I felt comfortable. Stephanie was actively aware of the limited funds I had and worked with me on ways that I could keep her fees to a minimum. I never once felt like I was kept in the dark or not explained certain things. I have and will continue to recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a family lawyer.

Stephanie was a pleasure to work with in a stressful time during a family law case. I was at ease after initially meeting with Stephanie as she gathered and laid out facts concerning my case. She is easy to talk to and was very attentive to my questions and concerns. Stephanie is an excellent communicator and presented my side of the case flawlessly. She is exceedingly knowledgeable and impressed every step of the way! A true professional whom I would not hesitate to retain the services of in the future.
