Legal Assistant

Stephanie joined Elder Law of East Tennessee in 2021 and is the firm’s Legal Assistant, providing direct support to all the Paralegals on our team. With prior experience in the New Hampshire court system, exceptional organizational skills, and close attention to detail, Stephanie has always been well positioned to ensure our clients’ legal documents are executed accurately, recorded as needed with the proper government offices, and delivered to our clients in a tidy package. Stephanie often liaises with courts to obtain needed information and expedite clients’ work; sends letters to clients on behalf of ELET Attorneys and Paralegals; and calls clients to obtain information or deliver updates about their work. Her eagerness to support others and her fantastic sense of humor make her a joy to work with, both for clients and for fellow ELET staff.

What is the problem you are best at solving for your clients?

If clients have any questions or concerns about their executed estate planning documents, I am their go-to person for updates. I keep a detailed log of information about a client’s signing and next steps that need to be taken prior to finalizing their documents. If a client is unsure of what needs to be done, I usually have the answers for them.

What excites you about your work and the contribution you make to the ELET team?

I love how as a team we can help our clients navigate through a normally very difficult time of life or problem and make it a little less scary and overwhelming. I enjoy being able to work in tandem with my teammates towards a common goal and seeing the outcome from all our hard work.

What do you love most about ELET?

For me, the one thing I love most about ELET is my team of co-workers. The team here at ELET is made up of a wide range of the most welcoming, sincere, and amazing people, and I couldn’t be happier to work with them day in and day out.

Where can we find you when you’re not working?

When I am not working, you can often find me spending time with my friends and family, whether that be here in Tennessee, down in Georgia, or up north in New Hampshire.

Fun facts:

I have now lived in three different states, including New Hampshire, Idaho, and Tennessee. I was able to swim with sharks, stingrays, and sea turtles while on a marine biology trip to Belize.
