Stephanie R. Hankins graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Mass Communication with a concentration in Public Relations from McNeese State University in 2004 and received her Juris Doctor from University of Houston Law Center in 2007. While in law school, Stephanie served as the Executive Editor of the Houston Business and Tax Law Journal, volunteered in the Transactional Law clinic, earned a Lex award and other academic scholarships.
From her first step onto the legal field stage in 2007, Stephanie has devoted her attention to practicing transactional law. Juxtaposing her legal expertise and entrepreneurial mindset, Stephanie founded and operated a very successful law firm and title company in Sulphur, Louisiana prior to joining the Boerne team of Leger, Ketchum & Cohoon, PLLC as “of counsel”. Whether representing investors on multimillion-dollar acquisitions, assisting clients with estate planning needs, or advising business owners on corporate strategies, she awards the same personalized service, tactical approach, and attention to detail that her clients have grown to love and appreciate. Stephanie’s ample experience representing clients on all transactional sides has given her unique insight and a broader archetype with which to approach each case. Her use of creative methodologies and recognizing potential pitfalls offers her clients a much-desired piece of mind. Stephanie relishes understanding the unique needs of each client and fearlessly advocates on their behalf to attain the best possible outcome.
Community engagement is very important to Stephanie. As a lifelong resident of Southwest Louisiana, Stephanie served her community through a broad range of professional, service, and youth organizations. Following the aftermath of two massive 2020 hurricanes which devastated her hometown, Stephanie and her family made the decision to relocate to the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Boerne has opened its welcoming arms and has become the Hankins’ new home. Stephanie has become an active member of the Boerne/Fair Oaks Ranch communities through organizations such as the Kendall County Bar Association, Commercial Real Estate Women of San Antonio (Crew), Hill Country Women in Business, 100 Women of the Hill Country, Inc., and Boerne Education Foundation.
Stephanie thrives at balancing her roles as an attorney, community volunteer, mom, wife, and travel extraordinaire.
