Once in a Blue Moon – Stefanie Camille Moon
Stefanie Camille Moon is running for Broward County Circuit Court Judge, Group 38 in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court. A fifth generation Florida native, born and raised in Riviera Beach, Stefanie’s roots run deep in the South Florida community. She is the eldest of three. She and her brothers were raised by their mot, disciplinarian home.
Moon, 49, who is married to the love of her life, Douglas, has a blended family and currently lives in Parkland. She received her bachelor’s degree from Loyola University in New Orleans in 1990 and her law degree in 1994 from Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, La.
Moon went on to become a local, state and federal criminal prosecutor in South Florida, handling cases that involved consumer and bank fraud, internet crimes, firearms and drugs. Since 2012, she has run her own law firm in Fort Lauderdale. She specializes in white-collar criminal defense, as well as business litigation, including labor and employment claims.
Moon also has served as a special magistrate for the Broward County Value Adjustment Board. In that role, she conducted hearings for property owners challenging their real property tax assessments on their tax bills.
“I was the face of justice for those citizens, and as such, I believed that was important for them to feel confident that their concerns, regardless of the level of articulation in expression, were fully heard and fairly considered,’ Moon wrote in a judicial questionnaire.
Moon currently serves as an attorney in private practice. She volunteers with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, Kiwanis Club of Pompano Beach Westside, PACE Center for Girls and The Links, Incorporated. She also serves on the board of the American Red Cross and Legal Aid Society.
Of the 92 Judges in Broward County, only eight are African American. Moon is running for the seat currently held by Judge Ilona Holmes, who is retiring in December 2018. We need more African American Judges and she is the best qualified candidate in the Group 38 race.
