About Us

Who We Are

Stone | Dean is a full service law firm focused on solving problems. We represent individuals and businesses in all aspects of litigation and business transactions. The firm’s partners have earned and maintain excellent reputations within the legal and business communities for their passion, integrity, and achievements. We service clients who are successful businesses, entrepreneurs, and high-net worth individuals with a myriad of issues involving business planning and formation, business litigation, trust and probate litigation, employment counseling and litigation, insurance analysis and coverage litigation, and security and premises issues. We fulfill our clients’ objectives by delivering quality legal services that exceed our clients’ expectations.

What We Do

We partner with our clients to help them secure their strategic and financial objectives. The strategies we deploy depend upon the circumstances we confront, but each strategy is formed in conjunction with each client’s participation. As often heard, we, as lawyers, are only as good as the client allows us to be by participating in strategic decisions, supporting the strategies, and staying involved in the solution-achieving processes.

Commitment to Our Clients

If we do not take care of our clients, someone else will. To ensure that we exceed our clients’ expectations, we:

  • Get to know our clients, their businesses, and industry;
  • Listen to our clients, focusing on their needs, goals, priorities, and objectives. When appropriate, we challenge their assumptions to ensure they are making informed strategic decisions;
  • Consider and ultimately develop legal, practical, and creative strategies designed to achieve those objectives;
  • Say what we are going to do, then do what we said; and
  • Ensure access and promptly respond to client inquiries.
