Stefanie practices primarily in the areas of criminal expungements, human services licensing, and family law. Stefanie compassionately guides her clients through their legal challenges by providing sound legal advice and exceptional legal representation in a cost-efficient manner.
Stefanie has been licensed to practice law since 2005, after graduating cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. During law school, Stefanie was a law review staff member, a semi-finalist in the law school’s moot court competition, and a member of the school’s regional moot court team. Stefanie also spent two years as a law clerk with Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (“SMRLS”), where she gained significant experience working directly with low-income clients. Stefanie was the recipient of the prestigious Mansfield Fellowship in the summer of 2004 for her work at SMRLS. In 2005, Stefanie partnered with Jon Geffen to author an important law review article about criminal expungements. Since its publication, this article has been cited by the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
After graduating from law school, Stefanie was invited to clerk for an experienced, respected Judge in Hennepin County District Court. Here, Stefanie assisted the Judge for two years in Hennepin County Family Court, and three years on civil and criminal cases. Stefanie researched and drafted opinions for the Judge in highly contentious family court cases, as well as complex civil litigation matters. Stefanie’s experience working in the judicial system gives her valuable insight into what happens behind the scenes when a case goes to Court.
After taking a short break to care for her young children, Stefanie is now practicing law with Arneson & Geffen, PLLC. Stefanie is thrilled and honored to be part of this dynamic, client-focused law firm.
Outside of the office, Stefanie and her husband, Josh, spend their time chasing after their three children at their home in Maple Grove.
