January 2023 marks the one-year anniversary of Stephens & Stevens PLLC, founded by partners Eddie Stephens and Caryn A. Stevens. The firm celebrates a memorable year filled with awards, charity and community.
In its first year, Stephens & Stevens PLLC was honored as 2022 “Top Lawyers” by Palm Beach Illustrated and was named a 2023 U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in the area of family law. Eddie Stephens was nominated for Nonprofits First Hat’s Off Award for Volunteer of the Year. Caryn A. Stevens was a finalist for the Palm Beach Post’s 2022 Best Divorce Attorney and was included in the 2023 edition of the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America for her work in family law. She was also selected for the 2023 Rising Star Leadership Award by Herizon (formerly the Jewish Women’s Foundation).
“We are proud of our work and civic engagement this past year. Our team has exemplified what we stand for as a marital and family law firm helping our clients achieve the best possible outcome,” Stephens said.
The firm continues its ongoing commitment to local charities and the community. Recently, Stephens and Stevens chaired and sponsored the “Arts & Media Day” for Leadership Palm Beach County GROW Program, which empowers high school juniors to understand the critical issues facing Palm Beach County while encouraging them to expand their leadership roles and build a foundation of involvement in their community.
Stephens has established himself as a leader in family law and the community. He founded a family law blog and has served as a mentor in his field for the past 18 years, writing articles and speaking to peers about new laws affecting family and marital law. He currently serves on the board of directors for the Center for Child Counseling and the board of governors for Leadership Palm Beach County.
Stevens serves on the board of directors for Herizon and was recently a speaker in their free educational workshop series, Money Mavens. Her achievement of the Herizon 2023 Rising Star Leadership Award recognizes an outstanding young woman who has demonstrated a commitment to improving the lives of women and girls in our community through volunteerism and philanthropic investment. Stevens is also in her fifth year serving as a mentor for at-risk high school students.
“Giving back in a meaningful way and being a part of our community will remain a strong focus of our firm as we begin 2023,” Stevens said. “Our team has made this extraordinary first year possible.”
They will host a private event in January to celebrate their first year. For more info., call (561) 430-4350 or www.ss-familylaw.com.
