Located in Manassas, Virginia, Stephanie’s journey to this esteemed position is one marked by resilience, determination and an unwavering commitment to the pursuit of justice.
In 2008, amid the global financial crisis that led to a surge in bankruptcy cases, Stephanie was working for a bankruptcy law firm. However, the grim atmosphere following the crash soon began to weigh on her. Seeking a change, she responded to a Craigslist ad and found herself stepping through the doors of the personal injury firm, the Parrish Law Firm.
Brought onboard by Jim Parrish, the firm’s founder, Stephanie quickly became an integral part of the team. For many years, it was just the two of them working tirelessly to represent their clients. Over the past 12 years, she has seen the firm grow from a small operation into a robust legal team.

Yet, she thrives in this dynamic environment, her organizational skills proving invaluable in juggling her many responsibilities.
Despite her heavy workload, Stephanie harbors ambitions of becoming a defense attorney. She has been working towards this goal while maintaining two jobs and studying Criminal Psychology at George Mason University. Expected to graduate in 2024, Stephanie is undoubtedly poised to make significant strides in her legal career.
Beyond her professional life, Stephanie demonstrates a deep commitment to giving back to the community. She has been a St. Jude’s Hero Ambassador since 2016, fundraising for the hospital and participating in fun runs and marathons. Her efforts have been nothing short of remarkable, personally raising $45,000 for St. Jude.
When she manages to find some downtime, Stephanie indulges in her love for country music. She recently traveled to Nashville not only to immerse herself in the vibrant music scene but also to participate in a race for St Jude’s.
