Miller Barondess, LLP Adds Powerhouse Litigator to Partnership – Lawyer Monthly


LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Miller Barondess, LLP, a litigation firm in Los Angeles, is pleased to announce the addition of Molly C. Stephens to its partnership.

Molly has 20 years of experience in all types of litigation.

She also has expertise in litigation related to cryptocurrencies.

Molly has been named a “Recommended Lawyer” in Securities Litigation by Legal 500 United States (2013-2015, 2017, 2018), and was named a promising securities litigator by United States Rooms (2013, 2014), which recognizes “praise for her “powerful and impressive” practice in securities litigation” and noted that she is “phenomenally bright, a critical thinker and a great listener.

“I am excited and full of energy to join Miller Barondess. The firm has exceptional lawyers whom I am proud to call my colleagues. I love practicing law and helping clients achieve great results,” said Molly.
