Stephanie Mack joined the Law Office of Silverman, Vorhis & Mack as an equity partner in 2013. She brought to the firm her expertise in the areas of family law and probate law.
Ms. Mack graduated from the University of Florida in 1999 with a B.A. in Criminology. Two years later, she began her studies at the Fredric G. Levin College of Law and graduated in 2003. For two years subsequent to graduation, Ms. Mack was employed as a staff attorney for the Fifth Judicial Circuit, Marion County. During her tenure working for the circuit court judges, she gained exposure to a wide array of legal cases, became experienced in crafting the most compelling legal arguments, and perfected her research and writing abilities. Her work focused mainly on post-conviction relief for criminal defendants.
After working two years for the Fifth Judicial Circuit, in 2005 Ms. Mack was hired as an associate attorney in the Law Offices of Stephen Miller in Gainesville, FL, her hometown since she was nine. During her time there, she began focusing her practice exclusively on family and probate issues. She participated in the Guardian ad Litem Program, which is a pro bono activity, from 2010 to 2013. Significantly, Ms. Mack achieved board certification before the State Bar of Florida in marital and family law in 2011. Board certification is a rigorous process that requires substantial experience in the area of certification in the five years preceding the application, including seven trials; seventy-five hours of continuing legal education in the specific area of law in the previous five years; peer review by local judges and attorneys; and a demanding written examination. The Florida board certification process is one of the nation’s premier programs. Only 6% of attorneys in the state possess a board certification in any one of the twenty-four areas offered, with even fewer being certified in marital and family law.
