Stephanie C. Kucera

Stephanie’s practice focuses on professional liability, contracts, negligence, healthcare and regulatory law, and insurance.  She works with independent practitioners across Central Oregon as well as representing businesses, clinics and hospitals of all sizes.  Stephanie works hard to be the most knowledgeable person in the room about her case and clients.

Stephanie started her legal career in Missoula, Montana.  She happily moved to Central Oregon where she can still trail run, ski, hike, and spend time on the water with her family.  When she’s not at the office or on the trail, she enjoys cooking with a glass of wine in-hand.
