Attorney Profile

Certified as a specialist in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Stephanie Bandoske focuses her practice exclusively on those types of matters. A partner at Bandoske & Butler, PLLC, she represents clients throughout Bexar County from the firm’s offices in San Antonio. Ms. Bandoske has been admitted to practice before all Texas state courts since 2005.

Ms. Bandoske attended the University of Maryland, College Park, as an undergraduate, majoring in psychology and receiving a Bachelor of Science in 1999. After earning a Master of Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma in 2000 and working with the U.S. Air Force as in a civilian role, she enrolled at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, and in 2005 she was awarded her Juris Doctor, graduating in the top 25% of her class.

Ms. Bandoske spent several years with a San Antonio-area family law firm before co-founding Bandoske & Butler, PLLC, in June 2015. Since that time, she has devoted a significant portion of her practice to divorce matters, representing people whose marriages are coming to an end and who are thus having to deal with the related legal issues of property division, parenting, and child and spousal support. Her background in mediation allows her to guide her clients through that alternative dispute resolution process, but in cases where sessions do not produce a satisfactory result and informal negotiations have broken down, Ms. Bandoske will prepare the case for trial and argue on their behalf in court.

Ms. Bandoske has also helped clients who have already gotten divorced and who now need to have existing parenting or support court orders modified or enforced. Her overall successful track record has earned her a Distinguished* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and an “Excellent” peer review rating through Avvo.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™ fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
