My name is Eddie Stephens and I am a Board Certified Family Law Attorney who has practiced family law in Palm Beach County my entire legal career.
With 18 years of litigation experience, I specialize in high-conflict, high-asset divorce cases. I focus on helping clients with domestic legal issues such as property division, business valuation, child support and spousal support, child custody and visitation, post-judgment modifications, child relocation, same sex marriages, and both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
I have earned the AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, a professional rating indicating the highest ethical standards and professional ability. I have also been selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America ®, a peer-review publication recognizing the top 4% of attorneys in the country.
Having tried hundreds of high-conflict divorce cases in Palm Beach County, my hourly rate is higher than the average family law attorney due to my experiences and expertise. I also oversee a team of lawyers with varying levels of experience and hourly rates.
In addition to practicing family law, I am also proud to call myself an author, lecturer, and community leader. As a third generation Floridian, I am a concerned citizen of Palm Beach County who volunteers and supports a number of civic and charitable organizations to better the community including Leadership Palm Beach County, Boy Scouts of America, Big Dog Ranch Rescue and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
As a divorced father of two teenage children, I know first-hand what’s at stake when counseling my clients. My hobbies include cooking, yoga, camping and spending time with my family.
In my spare time, I like to write my own summaries on every family law case published in Florida; I call them “squibs.” While I started the “squibs” as a way for me to learn about the cases, I also enjoy sharing them with my colleagues and they are published by the Family Section of the Florida Bar. If you would like to read my “squibs” or learn more about me, visit my legal blog at www.EddieStephens.com.
