      About Stephan Lopez

      Focused on clients for individualized attention.

      Every Client Matters

      Hi I am Stephan, I am a Cuban born Miami raised trial lawyer. I am a former police detective who has investigated thousands of criminal cases, including homicides, robberies, and other serious felonies. I spent nearly 10 years in law enforcement both as an officer and detective.

      I also served as a prosecutor for the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office, the largest prosecutor’s office in the State of Florida and 4th largest in the nation. For the past 12 years, I have served as a Special Assistant Public Defender, handling hundreds of serious juvenile and adult cases, including career criminal and homicide cases in both Miami Dade and Broward Counties. I am qualified to handle death penalty cases.

      Trial Experience

      I have first chaired over 100 criminal and civil trials, many of them in front of a Jury. My extensive investigative and trial experience is what gives me the confidence to take on the government and big insurance companies and the big law firms that represent the insurance companies.

      Not All Lawyers Are The Same

      Insurance companies seldom want to pay their own clients, for legitimate insurance claims.Some lawyers simply don’t have the trial experience and will get intimidated by the insurance companies and its lawyers and will settle claims for less than full value. I believe that a person whose home has been damaged because of a storm or other covered peril, should never settle for less than the full value of their claim.

      I am used to fighting in court for my clients. In criminal cases I fight against the mighty power of the government to get the best result possible.  I have real trial experience and I truly believe that there is no opponent big enough or tough enough that I won’t take head on. If you want a passionate trial lawyer with real trial experience, in both the criminal and civil arenas, someone who will make sure your rights are vindicated, someone who will get you the full value of your claim, then just pick up the phone and call me or contact me through the contact form on my website.

      I hired Stephan Lopez to handle my case. I had a really serious issue with mold. Stephan went above and beyond from start to finish. From removing the mold, replacing drywall, and litigation, Stephan was there every step of the way. His office is very professional and I strongly recommend Stephan Lopez for any of your legal needs.

      I have nothing but good things to say about Stephan and his team. He was able to settle an insurance claim for my family and I and obtain a more than favorable settlement. This has allowed us to repair all damages to our property with ease. From the second he was contracted, he was extremely quick to address any issues (mold, tarp on roof to ensure no further damage was done, etc.). This gave me the assurance that we were in great hands. If you are thinking for a second to go with Stephan’s law firm for anything, please do. You will not regret it. Thank you!!

      Stephen Lopez is very professional. I hired him a couple of years ago to handle case for me. He was very honest and reliable. Despite his busy schedule, he always made time to address any concerns I may have had. He also kept me updated throughout all court proceedings, so I was always aware of what was going on. He listened to all of my concerns and worked on a master plan to deliver results. He’s a very honest professional and I highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a a honest reliable Attorney.
