Bio

As a retired judge I am actively involved with teaching at several local universities. I began teaching continuing education courses to my fellow judges and attorneys. Then I fell in love with teaching graduate and undergraduate students. Over the last eight years I taught criminology, business and criminal law, criminal justice, political science, history and social sciences.

In addition to my career as a County Court and acting District Court Trial Judge, I served in many other offices...

In addition to my career as a County Court and acting District Court Trial Judge, I served in many other offices and positions. I served as a State Senator, State Representative, Criminal Prosecutor, Legal and Civil Advisor, Private Attorney and Political Scientist. As a teacher my fields keeps expanding as does my mutual love of learning.

Many university students do not take advantage of tutoring and that is where they fail. I am excited that you want to take advantage of tutoring and advance in your academic career.

Criminal Justice

As a retired state court trial judge and criminal prosecutor I have over thirty years of experience in criminal justice as well as business, civil, and criminal law. I have over ten years of teaching experience at the university undergraduate and graduate levels in business law, criminal justice, criminal law, criminology, history, political science and sociology. As a former state legislator and political scientist, I am experienced at political science communication, public policy, and public speaking.

I teach at the university undergraduate and graduate levels in business law, criminal justice, criminal law, criminology, history, political science and sociology. As a former State Senator and State Representative I developed, created and guided the passage of legislation into law. I am one of the few experienced in law from the perspective of all three branches of government, judicial, legislative and executive.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have over 40 years in public and political life both as an elected official and as a trainer of political candidates. I train them in how to devise, develop and present speeches and arguments to a wide array of the public at local, state and national audiences. As a trial and appellate attorney with over 30 years of experience in arguing cases before juries, judges and judicial appellate panels, including the state supreme court, I now also mentor other attorneys on how to improve their public speaking and presentation skills. As a retired state court trial judge I mentored new judges on how to present themselves in their public court rulings and decisions. As a college professor I include public speaking and presentations in every one of my courses. That is because if you cannot communicate what you know or learn you will never succeed at any business enterprise or opportunity. Finally, I regularly judge moot court arguments and public speaking skills by high school, college and law school teams throughout the state. There are simple, tried and true best practices for public speaking for all of these different public speaking situations that are clearly transferable for any public speaking engagement or opportunity.

Experienced and wise tutor that invests into your achievement.

Judge Stephan is a fantastic tutor and the best Business Law tutor I could find on Wyzant. He is well versed in the IRAC format and cuts to the chase. He's deeply knowledgeable and can analyze a legal issue from the perspective of all parties involved. He is committed to paying a meticulous level of detail with every practice session. Thanks to Judge Stephan, I developed a deeper sense of the law than I ever had before, and my class was a resounding success.

Great Tutor

Stephen took the time to really explain and help me understand the organization of legal writing and how to frame my issue in the context of what I was looking at. He's super patient and willing to let you jump all over the board with ideas.
