Carol Lee Stephan recently joined The Bennett Law Firm, bringing over twenty years of expertise in family law, corporate law, estate planning and regulatory compliance.  Her substantial Northeast Ohio experience includes serving as in-house counsel for a major property and casualty insurance company where her role encompassed a variety of responsibilities such as regulatory compliance, overseeing claims and corporate litigation, contract negotiation, and risk management.  Additionally, Carol has extensive experience managing a private law practice where she successfully resolved a wide range of family and estate matters through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation, covering issues such as divorce, asset division, wills and trusts, and parenting matters.

Over the last ten years, Carol applied her legal acumen toward enhancing philanthropic support for well-respected health care, humanitarian and higher education non-profit organizations in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Michigan and Virginia.  Carol’s deep understanding of tax law and estate planning have significantly boosted fundraising campaigns, allowing nonprofit organizations to achieve and surpass financial goals.
