Stephanie J. Wellner joins Eggleston + Briscoe, LLP bringing with her over a decade of experience in real estate-related legal work, including large-scale real estate development negotiations and volume litigation related to mortgage loan default. She has also worked extensively in the title industry.
Her clients range from small-scale real estate investors to commercial developers, as well as private money lenders, government-sponsored enterprises, and portfolio lending institutions and servicers.
Additionally, Stephanie makes it a personal mission to take on pro bono cases. Her work in this area includes resolving “cloudy” title issues for victims of natural disasters, who often face difficulty receiving aid to rebuild after disasters such as hurricanes due to an inability to prove home ownership.
Stephanie is a native of Anchorage, Alaska. She was an active member of Anchorage Youth Court and served as both a defense attorney and prosecutor in the state’s juvenile justice system. Her first legal issue as a budding young lawyer involved resolving easement disputes on one of Alaska’s last issued homestead sites.
Before practicing law, Stephanie served as an emergency firefighter for the Alaska Division of Forestry where she managed logistics and planning for major wildfires. She continues to draw on her emergency management experience, and her ability to see through to the core matters in time-pressured situations has proven to be a valuable asset in representing her clients’ interests in challenging circumstances.
Stephanie received her undergraduate degree from Purdue University and has been a proud Texan and Houstonian since 2002. She received her law degree from South Texas College of Law in 2007.
Stephanie’s favorite hobby is the study of stand-up comedy and the art of humor. In her downtime, she writes and performs stand-up and studies the works of comedy writers and stand-up comedians from vaudeville through today.
