Attorneys Amy Sholar and Kelly Stephan formed a new law firm in Alton.

The Law Offices of Amy Sholar & Kelly Stephen will handle cases involving divorce, child related issues, criminal and traffic matters, probate issues and other general litigation.

The new firm opened on March 14.

Stephan comes from Columbia, Ill. She earned her undergraduate degree from SIUE and law degree from St. Louis University. She previously practiced law in St. Clair, Madison and Monroe Counties for more than five years.

Sholar is an Alton native and daughter of the late Eddie “Fast Eddie” Sholar. She also earned her undergraduate degree from SIUE and law degree from St. Louis University.

The new office is located at 524 Washington Avenue in Alton, which is across the street from The Law Enforcement Center and next to Fast Eddie’s Bon-Air. Sholar said she chose the location because she sees it as part of her family history.

“I grew up working for my father at Bon-Air, so I am really just getting back to my roots,” Sholar stated.
