Stephanie Miles

Co-founder and Lead Trial Lawyer

If a person was measured by how many units of their life they gave for the benefit of others, Stephanie would beat Mother Teresa. She just happens to be a world-class trial lawyer instead of a nun.

Stephanie is the absence of pretentiousness.  She is an incredible listener, has an amazing memory, and is astoundingly resourceful. She doesn't judge; she's quick to understand and forgive; and those (family, friends, colleagues, clients) who share a bond with her know how her immense powers have improved their lives.


She serves on the Standard Jury Instruction Committee (Civil), having been appointed by Florida's Supreme Court in 2019. Stephanie's passion and determination also extend beyond trial lawyering. For more than a decade, Stephanie contributed 100+ pro bono hours annually, advocating for neglected children in Hillsborough County as an attorney ad litem and guardian ad litem. Stephanie is also the repeat female Champion of the American Lung Association's Tampa Climb for Air, beating hundreds of competitors, and still holds the record for the fastest female to climb the 42 floors of Tampa's Bank of America building with a time of 6 minutes, 5 seconds. She also volunteers as a Co-Troop Leader for the Girl Scouts.

Professional Recognition

Stephanie has been recognized by Martindale with an AV Preeminent Rating, the highest available. Many of the exceptional peer reviews she received came from courtroom opponents she has faced over the years. Back in 2013, one adversary wrote: “[o]ur defense team estimated Ms. Miles trial experience well beyond her actual experience. She is an excellent trial attorney, always prepared and quick on her feet.”


Stephanie has guest lectured law students in upper-level insurance law at Stetson College of Law for the last 7 years.


Stephanie served as the Research Editor for the Stetson Law Review and graduated cum laude from Stetson Law in 2005. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002 where she was a University Scholar. Stephanie grew up in Wampum, Pennsylvania, where she was a salutatorian in her high school class of more than 200. 


  • Superb Lawyer

    One night I was struck on my motorcycle by a car making a blind left-hand turn. It left me hospitalized and unable to walk for about half a year. I was at rock bottom and I had no idea what to do until I met Ms. Miles. They did everything they could and more to help me through this time. They mad...
  • Best Decision

    I co-counseled with Stephanie Miles on a tractor-trailer vs. car collision in Central Florida. It was the best decision I made for my client. Not only is Stephanie backed by the stellar reputation of the firm, but her legal and technical skills are surpassed by none. She is sharp as a tack, hard-...
