Stacy Rocheleau

Asked her biggest challenge to date and Stacy will point to raising three teenage daughters. Studying for bar exams, orchestrating divorce trials, handling depositions, or arguing with other lawyers pales in comparison to mediating disputes over daughters borrowing shoes or makeup without asking. Stacy is the founder and managing partner of Right Lawyers in Las Vegas, Nevada. For over a decade Stacy has been one of the top divorce attorneys in the area. Her ability to negotiate disputes and knack for uncovering important issues has been key to her success as a divorce attorney and mother. Stacy graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Whittier College in 1991. She went on to earn her law degree from the University of San Diego School Of Law in 1996. Stacy is admitted to practice law in the State of Nevada. She is also admitted to practice before the U.S. Federal District Court and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
