Steven Hippolyte

Associate Attorney

Born to an immigrant family, custom demanded he become a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. Steven however was not sold on the idea until high school. Raised in Brooklyn, New York by, he always could tell who the bankers and lawyers were while riding the 2 train headed to the city. He idolized them, aspiring to join their ranks.

Steven attended State University of New York at Canton. After college he interned with the Kings County District Attorney’s Office then worked as a paralegal for the New York City Office of the Comptroller. He received his Juris Doctor from the Charleston School of Law in 2020. After taking the bar exam he immediately moved to Charlotte, longing for the city feeling but not as crowded as home. Prior to joining Brownlee Whitlow & Praet, Steven gained experience as real estate law and creditor rights attorney.

When he is not working he is likely in California spending time with his twin brother and nephew who looks eerily similar to both of them. He also enjoys quiet time on hikes with his rescue Kira.
