Deanna Stuemke

Deanna is living proof that you can have it all, just not at once! She has extensive experience advocating for her clients in both litigation and as a briefing attorney, including drafting briefs to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. She was on partnership track at one of the largest law firms in the nation and headed her own practice group within her office. It was during this time, however, when her advocacy skills were needed most at home. So, she took time off of her law practice to raise her three children, one of whom has special needs. She did, however, continue to take on legal pet projects that were near and dear to her heart. Once her children were older and with their full support and encouragement, she resumed her law practice as co-founder and partner of the firm she now runs with her husband, Jay. Deanna brings compassion and an unbridled desire go the extra mile to advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves, whether it be in the courtroom or in her law and motions practice. 

“I grew up in a very humble, working-class family where values like hard work and integrity were instilled from the beginning. Unfortunately, I witnessed firsthand how greedy corporations who put profits over people take advantage of good, hardworking individuals, and the devastating toll it takes on them and their loved ones. So, I knew at a very young age that I would make a career for myself advocating for good people who did everything right and still paid a hefty price. This isn’t just a job for me and you aren’t just a client – you are my purpose.”
