Ginny Stones and Susan Cardenas formed Stones & Cardenas in October 1997. Susan worked for a large regional firm with offices in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Ginny worked as an Assistant State Attorney, City Attorney for the City of Key West, and in private practice. In 1997, the partners decided to join forces and establish a law firm that utilized the expertise that Ginny gained in land use and zoning matters during her service as City Attorney, and built upon the broad civil experience that Susan acquired handling commercial and real property matters over the years.
In April of 2017, the original partners welcomed Gregory S. Oropeza as the Managing Partner. Originally from Key West, Greg has spent all of his professional career practicing real estate, land use and real estate litigation in Key West and Monroe County. Together, with more than 75 years of real property-related legal expertise, the three partners created a firm dedicated to providing solution-based service in real property related matters.
