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, before establishing her sole practice in Key West in 1989. Ginny worked as an Assistant State Attorney, as 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.
