Stacy A. Kemp, Esq.

Partner

Stacy Kemp is the founder of Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group and is an award-winning attorney and businesswoman. Attorney Kemp has been selected as one of the “Top Lawyers in Florida” by the Legal Network, and her firm was named “Small Business of the Year” by the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, her firm earned a place in the INC. 5000 for fastest growing privately held companies in the nation for the second year in a row. While this is just a small sample of what she has achieved, the plaques on the wall are not what Attorney Kemp uses to evaluate her success.

“It’s nice to win trophies, but I’d rather win clients” is one of several client-centered mantras that dictate the inner-workings of her firm. Her business model, though not revolutionary, is implemented effectively and relentlessly. She emphasizes constant client interaction, pleasant conversation and a “can do” attitude to ensure her clients receive the best legal representation possible. Considering her firm’s revenue has grown by over 100% each of the past three years, her approach must be working.

However, what truly sets Attorney Kemp apart from her peers is her commitment to the bay area’s community. Since starting her firm in 2008, she has made community involvement as integral to her firm’s business model as she has superior client service. With an ever-growing list of sponsorships, charities, and benefits, Attorney Kemp aims to support the community that supports her. Perhaps no greater example of her philanthropic nature is her firm’s presenting sponsorship of the Chasco Fiesta (a nine-day festival benefiting more than 25 nonprofits locally).

The heart of Attorney Kemp’s success lies in the fact that she is from this area and, even as a young child, she has always wanted this area to thrive. She attended River Ridge High School where she was very active in Future Business Leaders of America, as well as a number of other extracurricular activities. Then, she went on to Saint Leo University where she majored in Criminal Justice and earned National Dean’s List recognition multiple times. Finally, staying local once again, Attorney Kemp earned her Juris Doctorate from Stetson University College of Law. While there, she received numerous awards including the prestigious “ William F. Blews Award for outstanding pro bono service” and another series of Dean’s List awards.
