Stephanie Annunziata is an associate with a practice focused on navigating families through conflict. She assists families in contested probate and family law matters, including guardianships, divorce, parenting issues, and trust litigation. Stephanie recognizes and respects the sensitive nature of these personal matters and calls upon her experience to pursue creative resolutions for her clients. As a result of her cross-disciplinary practice, Stephanie is especially equipped to represent beneficiaries of generational wealth in divorce and parenting actions.
Stephanie is a trained collaborative law attorney. She employs collaborative techniques for clients who prioritize privacy and desire reduced conflict within their families. While collaborative law is especially useful for parents seeking to minimize the impact of conflict on their children, Stephanie’s probate clients can also benefit from the cost-effective strategies employed by the practice. Where a negotiated resolution is inappropriate, Stephanie’s litigation experience makes her a confident and capable ally in the courtroom.
Stephanie has been recognized by her peers for her dedication to the practice of law. In 2018, the New Hampshire Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys presented Stephanie with the Ann N. Butenhof Award.
