It's not just about money anymore, the emotional toll caused by the legal system is every bit as costly for people.

We have to find new ways to solve our legal problems.

Hi, I'm Stacey

I am on a mission to help people struggling with everyday legal issues find the right solutions for their lives. 

I never imagined that my career path, which started with a law school application, would end with a business called Before the Lawyer.  I am thrilled to be using my law degree and legal expertise to provide this new service. 

After 15+ years solving legal challenges for organizations trying to minimize their use of lawyers and court, I realized that the demand for my work wasn’t going away.  Instead, it was just the tip of the iceberg and I needed to go all in.

The truth is that lawyers and courts can't be the answer to every legal problem we have. Research shows that resolving problems in court is the most expensive, time consuming and least effective way of getting what you want. 

Lawyers are the right solution some of the time, just not all the time. Lawyers will be the first to tell you that. 

My goal is to provide you with the best customer experience possible – in a way that you can't find in a law office.

That means providing innovative ideas and solutions that aren't found elsewhere.

"I was paralyzed for months and didn't know where to start. I was avoiding everything. That all ending as soon as I talked to you. I felt like you understood my life and what I wanted. You made things easy for me and explained things in a way that made me feel empowered."
