About Stephanie
   

I majored in political science at the State University of New York at Stony Brook where I graduated summa cum laude and was initiated into Phi Beta Kappa. I continued my education at Hofstra University School of Law where I earned my Juris Doctor degree and held the distinction of being the first recipient of the prestigious David Kadane Public Interest Fellowship. In addition, I later returned to Hofstra Law and earned an LL.M. (master's degree) in International Law. Recently, I received Stony Brook University Political Science Department's 2009 Distinguished Alumnus Award. I am currently licensed to practice law in the State of New York and in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

I am a published author, having written "Law School 101: How To Succeed in Your First Year of Law School and Beyond," published in June 2009 by Sphinx Publishing, a division of Sourcebooks, Inc., Law School 101: Survival Techniques from Pre-Law to Life as an Attorney which was published in May 2004 by Sphinx Publishing., and "Exposed: The Harrowing Story of a Mother's Undercover Work with the FBI to Save Children from Internet Sex Predators," which was published in April 2007 by Thomas Nelson. Inc.  In addition, I co-authored the New York Times Best Seller "Aruba: The Tragic Untold Story of Natalee Holloway and Corruption in Paradise," which was published in April 2006 by Nelson Current, a division of Thomas Nelson, Inc., and "A Rush to Injustice: How Power, Prejudice, Racism, and Political Correctness Overshadowed Truth and Justice in the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case," which was published in June 2007 by Thomas Nelson, Inc. 

My work with the FBI was the subject of a documentary aired on WE TV on April 15, 2008 as part of their "Secret Lives of Women" series. Click on the links on the "EXPOSED" pages to see some previews.

On April 10, 2008, I was honored by CAPS (Child Abuse Prevention Service) by being named their "2008 Community Leadership Award" honoree for my work to help children.

In April 2009, the Political Science Department at the State University of New York at Stony brook awarded me their 2009 Distinguished Alumnus Award.

I am footnoted in several legal periodicals, including the Kentucky Law Journal and the American Political Science Review for my extensive contributions to research projects involving the confirmation process for United States Supreme Court Justices.

I have been a volunteer with CASA as a court-appointed special advocate for children in foster care and I am a trained emergency room companion for victims of rape and domestic violence.

I have worked in conjunction with SilverCreek Entertainment to co-produce major news segments for television, many of  which have been on such shows as "Extra," "20/20," "60 Minutes," "Good Morning America," and "Prime-Time Live."
