During my first 4 years of practicing law with Carlson & Meissner, I successfully handled over 277 open and active cases in litigation, managed a team of support staff, and developed ways for the firm to increase revenue and operate more efficiently. I settled a case for $550,000.00 within the first 6 months of my graduation from law school. It was the highest settlement the firm had in a work comp case in 10 years. Following 4 years with Carlson & Meissner, in 2008 I joined my father, attorney N. John Stewart, Jr., in the practice of law. Together we created the law firm of Stewart & Stewart, P.A.
