Ms. Stelnick’s core belief is that focusing on the client is critical in the litigation process. Insurance companies, negligent doctors, negligent manufactures and even negligent corporations have strong legal representation. A client without a strong, aggressive attorney will rarely operate on an even playing field in a litigation environment. The client’s needs remain paramount in every day of practice at The Law Offices of Steffanie Stelnick.
