Firm Overview

Recognizing the increasing number of attorneys in need of a hotel expert to guide them through hotel and hospitality industry standards and practices, career-long hotel executives Steve and Skip Stearns formed THE HOTEL EXPERTS, LLC (THE) in 2002. Today, Skip Stearns leads a collaborative of highly experienced hotel and hospitality professionals.

THE HOTEL EXPERTS, LLC works with attorneys to determine who is most knowledgeable and location appropriate to deliver effective support in each case.

THE HOTEL EXPERTS, LLC has been disclosed in over 100 cases covering 35 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. THE has appeared both for and against hotel properties, owners, operators, franchisors and individual litigants.
