About Stephanie Everett
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 for five years 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.”
Stephanie’s favorite thing about working in this space is getting to build a forward-thinking community of lawyers. “Our lawyers don’t have it all figured out- but they are willing to experiment, try, and report back. They inspire and push me.”
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, working with the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court, and Georgia’s five law schools, 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. She is the current treasurer and on the board of directors of the Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation. She is also a board member and former president of the Georgia State Law Alumni Council. During her career as a lawyer, Stephanie has been recognized as a Rising Star and a Super Lawyer, was named as a top lawyer of the year by Georgia Trends magazine, and was a recipient of the Fastcase 50 Award for law and technology.
Stephanie and her husband, Jason, both avid Texas Hold’em players, own a craft beer distributorship, serving the states of Georgia and Alabama. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her daughter–as long as it doesn’t involve running–in her home city of Atlanta.
