Stephanie Hunter grew up in Jamaica where she was raised by parents who stressed the importance of education and hard work. Family is very important to her, so it is no surprise that she spends her days in Family Court advocating for families caught in the system. Stephanie is a registered Mediator with the Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution and sees this as a great tool to assist her clients to resolve their legal issues.
Stephanie understands that her clients are unfamiliar with the legal system and works to guide and educate them about their legal rights and choices. Her practice is primarily focused on family law, including divorce, child custody/support, adoption and other juvenile issues.
While juggling the tasks of a full time career, wife and mother, she still finds time to give back to the community by volunteering at various legal clinics and undertaking pro bono cases through the state and local bar associations. Stephanie is also a Commissioner on the Birmingham Sister Cities board where she represents the Caribbean and is an active board member of the Central Alabama Caribbean American Organization.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly- MLK 16 Apr. 1963
