Stephen joined Goodkin as an associate in 2022. His practice focuses primarily on commercial and residential lease disputes, construction and habitability issues, and innumerable transactional matters. Prior to joining Goodkin, Stephen spent nearly three years at defense litigation firm, WSHB, where he handled various professional liability, construction, and habitability claims, as well as navigated complex coverage issues.

Stephen graduated from Atlanta's John Marshall Law School in 2018. As a law student, Stephen interned with both the Fulton County Metro Conflict Defender's Office and Rehabilitation Enables Dreams, a non-profit aimed at reducing recidivism for the first-time, non-violent, youthful offenders. Stephen also dedicated a year with the Fulton County Landlord Tenant Mediation Program, where he worked as a mediator overseeing and negotiating property disputes. Upon graduation, Stephen worked for a plaintiff's firm handing personal injury property, employment, and general liability claims. Stephen brings to his practice sage practice pointers gleaned from his experience, including creative strategies to resolving extremely complex issues.
