About Stephanie

Learn Stephanie’s areas of practice.

I am the founding member of Dovalina Law Group, representing both businesses and individuals in a variety of legal matters. With more than a decade of litigation experience throughout the Gulf Coast and Southern United States I know what it takes to successfully advocate for you. I have represented clients in matters ranging from thousands to multi-million-dollar law suits in the areas of civil and commercial litigation including: employment law, administrative law, real estate, construction, personal injury, family law, premises liability, contract disputes, toxic tort, workers compensation, immigration, government, and insurance.

I am is licensed to practice law in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Georgia and am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. I graduated in the top of my class from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. After graduating from law school, I began my career working in Atlanta for a top tier international law firm, but found that I missed New Orleans too much. After returning to New Orleans I worked for both mid-sized law firms and as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of New Orleans before founding Dovalina Law Group. I have the skills and knowledge to advocate for you.

Excellent attorney
I hired Stephanie to represent me after I was injured in a car accident. Stephanie handled everything and worked with my physical therapist and the insurance companies. I am pleased with the settlement and with Stephanie's work. I would highly recommend to her to anyone seeking legal representation.
