Of Counsel

Stefani is a wills, trusts, and estate planning attorney with experience in business planning and formation. She is a graduate of Regent University School of Law and a member of the Virginia Bar.

Stefani is a 9-year U.S. Navy veteran who held various positions of responsibility including Cryptologic Language Analyst, Geospatial Metadata Analyst, and Language Program Coordinator for Naval Special Warfare Command.
