Stefanie Ebbens Kingsley
Stefanie Ebbens Kingsley has advocated for everyday Kentuckians for more than a decade. A seasoned litigator with experience in consumer law, collection defense, family law, and administrative law, Stefanie represents individuals in state and federal court to enforce consumer's legal rights under the Kentucky Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, and the Fair Credit Reporting Act, with a focus on helping clients achieve economic stability and security.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Stefanie moved to Eastern Kentucky in 2005 to work for the Appalachian Research and Defense Fund of Kentucky (AppalReD Legal Aid). She represented low-income clients in a variety of matters, including divorce, domestic violence issues, custody issues, foreclosure, debt collection defense, and bankruptcy. She then worked for two years in the consumer law unit at the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, representing clients hit hard by the financial crisis. Stefanie came home to Kentucky in 2009 to return to her work serving Kentucky’s most vulnerable at legal aid. In 2015, Stefanie also worked as an Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Rate Intervention, representing consumers before the Public Service Commission. After a career in public service, Stefanie made the transition to private practice in 2016, and opened Stefanie Ebbens Kingsley Law in Corbin, Kentucky.
Stefanie graduated from Marquette University Law School in 2005. She is a member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates, National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, and the Kentucky Justice Association, and regularly attends National Consumer Law Center trainings.
Stefanie is happy to be back in Kentucky for good. She lives in Williamsburg with her husband Fred and their four dogs, one cat, and seventy-two chickens on their mini-farm. She is on the board for Kentucky Mutts, a dog rescue that helps find safe and loving homes for dogs in need. Stefanie is a board member of Emerge Kentucky, a candidate training program for Democratic Women, sits on the Board for the Whitley County Farmer's Market, and is a member of the Baptist Health Corbin Foundation Board.
