Stephen J. Stine founded The Stine Law Firm in 2011. He is an active trial attorney who focuses on business litigation, complex contract and business tort disputes, construction litigation and negotiations, restrictive covenants, commercial lease and real estate litigation, unfair business practices, and collections matters including fraudulent conveyances and successor liability cases.
During his career, Mr. Stine has prosecuted, defended and settled numerous litigation matters in Virginia and D.C. federal and state courts. Mr. Stine maintains a particularly active practice in in the Eastern District of Virginia and Fairfax County Circuit Court, two of the busiest and most influential courts in the Beltway. While Mr. Stine regularly litigates cases through trial, he is also adept in settlement negotiations, arbitration, and mediation, and he counsels clients on how to best present their case. Mr. Stine recognizes from long experience that often the best settlement strategy is to zealously advance the client’s litigation interest, and thus every case proceeds with trial preparation in mind – whether the case ultimately goes to trial or is settled out of court.
