With fifteen years of experience, Stacy N. Beaulieu-Fawcett is a celebrated family law attorney known for her compassionate yet aggressive representation in everything from divorce and custody to complex matrimonial matters and appeals. Based in Delray Beach and North Palm Beach Florida, Stacy acts as the managing partner of Beaulieu-Fawcett Law Group.

Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett discovered her passion for law in high school and enrolled at the University of Miami School of Law shortly after obtaining her undergraduate degree. During her third year of law school, she was recruited to work for a large family law firm in Miami. As she tells it, it was there that she was inspired to dedicate her life to helping family law clients surmount their legal challenges with dignity and ease:
I saw the lengths some clients would go to in order to win a case, some even harming their own children. And the firm was completely okay with that as long as they were getting their retainer, but I knew it was wrong to be using children as a pawn. This sparked my passion to be the change in the industry—to run a practice that is truly about the clients and their children and not about the dollar.
After earning her Juris Doctor in 2004, Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett accepted a position with the Chief Family Law Judge in Miami. Two years later, she opened up her private practice, where she began handling high-profile cases, including celebrity and pro-athlete divorces. Today, Beaulieu-Fawcett Law Group is recognized among America’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. 5000 and one of the fastest growing law firms in the U.S. by Law Firm 500.
It is Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett’s devotion to protecting her clients' rights and serving in their children's best interests that sets her apart from other family law attorneys. Working day and night to educate and guide her clients, she takes a customized, hands-on approach to each case, negotiating when possible and aggressively litigating on their behalf when necessary. Having witnessed countless family law matters over the course of her career, Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett has a genuine empathy for her clients and takes pride in being a source of hope and compassion for them during their darkest hour.
As a thought-leader in her field for whom her clients' success is paramount, Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett maintains a free blog to keep her clients abreast of current news and developments. She also frequently lectures and writes on family law issues throughout the state of Florida. She commented that recently she has noticed a trend towards private judges in her client base:
Because we handle a lot of famous clients who are constantly in the public eye, there has been a lot of effort to hire private judges. These people are looking for some privacy when going through difficult family matters and a private trial with sealed agreements helps them achieve just that.
Outside of the office, Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett is passionate about giving back to her community. Her firm supports over forty nonprofits, and she is also a member of several community-based organizations, including the Women’s Executive Club and the Delray Chamber of Commerce.
Ms. Beaulieu-Fawcett is in the midst of opening up a national office in Nashville, Tennessee and, moving forward, she plans to travel back and forth between the two states. In addition, she is dedicated to training and mentoring her employees so that they can continue to provide the best possible service to their clients. When not working in the office or in the community, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her three kids and three dogs.
