Stefan began his courtroom career prosecuting in the State's Attorney Office in Florida, and then as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Practicing in Oregon for over twenty years since then, Stefan's practice has expanded from criminal and civil litigation to include an emphasis on entertainment and intellectual property law for artists, producers and content creators in Oregon's film and TV industry, as well as business, tenancy and contract law for small businesses, including those in the burgeoning Oregon cannabis industry. A former board member of the Oregon Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, Stefan contributes much of his pro bono efforts in working with non-profit theatre companies and artists. He has offices in Portland and Lake Oswego.
