Stephanie Everett
Attorney/CEO/Lab Coach/Speaker

Stephanie understands what it’s like to practice law and run a business. She started her career at a big law firm before co-founding her own real estate litigation firm. As the managing partner, Stephanie watched her firm grow from two lawyers to a team of twenty people in just seven years.

Her passion for running a business led her to pursue coaching and consulting so she could help other lawyers who work hard, but often felt stuck in their business. In 2016, a joint venture comprising the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court, and Georgia’s five law schools tapped Stephanie to design and launch Lawyers for Equal Justice, an incubator helping newer lawyers start socially conscious law firms.

Stephanie joined the Lawyerist team in 2018 and launched our Lawyerist Lab program—helping lawyers grow and sustain a healthy business. She still works closely with the lawyers in our Lab program but splits her time and also oversees our business operations.

She is a co-author of Lawyerist’s best-selling book The Small Firm Roadmap, and host of The Lawyerist Podcast.

Stephanie leads team Lawyerist and coaches lawyers on how to grow and sustain healthy businesses. She hosts The Lawyerist Podcast and is a co-author of the best-selling book, The Small Firm Roadmap.
