Stephanie J. Rodin, Esq.
Stephanie J. Rodin, Esq. is the founder and principal of Rodin Legal, P.C. and has been practicing law since 1998, with a majority of that time assisting the healthcare professional.
Starting from a young age, Ms. Rodin has been exposed to the medical/dental field, as her immediate family all practice within the healthcare field. As a result, she was surrounded by various medical and legal issues that routinely arose during the practice of medicine and dentistry. This provided Ms. Rodin with the expertise that serves as the foundation of her legal practice. Rodin Legal, P.C. caters to these legal complexities and is dedicated to the growth of professional practices.
Ms. Rodin began her legal career in commercial litigation, where she gained experience and knowledge in Corporate Law. Thereafter, she became an Associate with a firm concentrating in plaintiff medical and dental malpractice matters. She appeared in the Supreme Courts within all the New York City Counties, in addition to Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties. Ms. Rodin handled all aspects of cases, from client intake to trials, including all Court conferences, depositions, settlement conferences and jury selections. After gaining this experience, she then began to focus her career on representing healthcare professionals in malpractice actions.
Just prior to opening her own practice, she successfully defended dentists in malpractice actions throughout the New York area. Ms. Rodin worked closely with clients who specialized in all fields of dentistry, as well as dental experts and insurance carriers.
Working closely with various physicians and dentists, Ms. Rodin recognized the amount of effort it takes to ensure that office management runs smoothly, so that they can concentrate on providing the best care for their patients. It’s this understanding that is the core of her practice.
Ms. Rodin received her J.D. from New England School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts. Prior to this, she received a B.S. in Accounting from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School Of Business.
She is admitted to practice law in New York and New Jersey.
