Stephanie Everett leads the Lawyerist community and Lawyerist Lab. She is the co-author of Lawyerist’s popular book The Small Firm Roadmap and is a regular keynote speaker at legal conferences and CLEs.
Stephanie practiced at a big law firm before co-founding her own firm. As the managing partner, Stephanie watched her firm grow from two lawyers to a team of twenty in just seven years.
Stephanie’s philosophy: “I guide lawyers to create healthier businesses. I love helping them unlock the potential their firm has and to make life easier. We work too hard and stress too much. I love when someone tells me that their business is better because of our help.”
Her passion for owning and operating a law firm eventually led her to open a consulting practice, where she focused on helping lawyers learn how to run their own firms. From there, Stephanie designed and launched Lawyers for Equal Justice, an incubator helping newer lawyers start socially conscious law firms.
Stephanie graduated cum laude from Georgia State University College of Law, where she was the symposium editor of the Georgia State Law Review. During her career as a lawyer, Stephanie has been recognized as a Rising Star and a Super Lawyer and was named as a top lawyer of the year by Georgia Trends magazine.
She was a recipient of the Fastcase 50 Award for law and tech and named a 2020 Women of Legal Technology by the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center.
