Stefanie Trilling is a lawyer and communications strategist with nearly two decades of professional experience driving business development through content for law firms and top-tier publications.
She has developed and executed internal and external communications strategies at two Am Law 200 firms, including developing firm messaging, coaching lawyers on writing for third-party publications and court filings, creating firm style guides, devising crisis communications contingencies, and preparing lawyers and other executives for media interactions.
During the early days of the global Covid-19 pandemic, Stefanie’s artwork series, Children’s Books for Pandemics, went unexpectedly viral on social media. When the pandemic hit and under strict stay-at-home orders with two small children, she began to riff on children’s books with virus-related puns and picked up her then-5-year-old daughter’s Crayola washable paint. From the most basic of materials, she created parodies of beloved children’s books, including “Goodnight Zoom” (Goodnight Moon), “Coronaroy” (Corduroy), and “Masks for Sale” (Caps for Sale). In a globally uncertain era, her mission is to spread joy and demonstrate that social distance only separates people physically, and her art is something over which people can unite.
Stefanie earned her B.A. in journalism from the University of Maryland and her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School, and she is licensed to practice in New York and New Jersey. She lives in New York City with her family and enjoys setting personal records on her Peloton, amateur vegan cheesemaking, and walking all over Manhattan.
