Stephanie Miles is a partner and lead trial attorney at Cathey & Miles, P.A. For the last 16 years, she gained experience handling high-stakes cases arising from sports injuries, defective products, car accidents, medical malpractice and insurance bad faith. During trials, she enjoys a reputation for being the last to bed and the first to rise, even sleeping on the couch in her office. This past summer, her trial team recovered $10 million for a young man who was paralyzed at a summer football camp. 

Stephanie has guest lectured law students in upper level insurance law at Stetson for the last 7 years. She has tried bad faith cases in federal court in Miami and Tampa. She was part of the appellate team that convinced Florida's Supreme Court to hold insurance companies liable for attorney's fees that result from unaccepted proposals for settlement.

In 2019, Stephanie was appointed by Florida's Supreme Court as a member of the Standard Jury Instruction Committee (Civil). She has been voted a "Rising Star" in Super Lawyers from 2010 forward and has been recognized as AV Preeminent Rated by Martindale. Many of the exceptional peer reviews she received came from her courtroom opponents. Back in 2013, one adversary wrote: "[o]ur defense team estimated Ms. Miles trial experience well beyond her actual experience. She is an excellent trial attorney, always prepared and quick on her feet." 

For more than a decade, Stephanie contributed 100+ pro bono hours annually, advocating for neglected children in Hillsborough County as an attorney ad litem and guardian at litem. Stephanie holds the record at 6 minutes 5 seconds for the fastest female to climb the 42 floors of Tampa's Bank of America building. She also spends free time volunteering a Co-Troop Leader for the Girl Scouts.

Stephanie served as the Research Editor for the Stetson Law Review and graduated cum laude from Stetson Law in 2005.
