I was born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1984, and moved to St. Augustine with my mother, Dr. Karen Howell, when I was 12 years old. In 2002, I graduated from St. Augustine High School with honors. I went to college at Flagler and absolutely loved my time there. I double majored in Political Science and Spanish, and double minored in History and Pre-Law. From there, I went on to law school at the University of Florida. In 2009, I began my legal career when I opened my own law practice, Alyssa C. Camper, Attorney at Law, P.A. After I married my husband, Bryan Shorstein in November of 2017, I merged my law practice with my current law partner, Sung Lee, and became the “Shorstein” in the Law Offices of Shorstein and Lee. My main practice areas are criminal defense, estate planning, and probate in St. Johns County, Florida.

I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a lawyer because I wanted to be able to help people just like my dad did. Helping people and making a difference in their lives is the best part of my job. In handling my client’s issues, I am solution oriented. I want you to leave my office understanding your options and the plan we have to reach your goals. I do my best to help my clients achieve the best possible result in their case.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Bryan Shorstein and have two sons of whom I am immensely proud. Bryan is also an attorney, but is probably better known by his incredibly vast knowledge and love for all sports. We enjoy attending and watching many sporting events including football, golf, MMA, baseball, hockey, horse racing, basketball, etc. Together we witnessed both of the past 2 triple crown winners achieve their triple crown win in Belmont Park. We have 2 dogs, Copper and Darwin, who believe they run our house. They are not wrong.

My oldest son was born in 2002, graduated from St. Augustine High School in 2020 and now works at UPS. He is looking forward to getting his permanent driving route and buying his first house. My youngest son was born in 2007, currently works at a local restaurant gem, Schooners Seafood, and is a junior at St. Augustine High School. He is still figuring out what he will do from here. Watching my sons become solid, good young men has been the most rewarding experience of my life.

When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my family, friends and/or dogs, reading, cross-fitting, training for an upcoming half marathon, crossfit competition or triathlon, traveling, watching sports or attending one of my son’s many sporting events or school performances. I am also currently learning how to knit, speak German and play the guitar with varying degrees of success.

-Nora Alexa

An exceptional attorney. Not usually a big fan of the legal profession, but Alyssa and her staff are the exception. Pleasant to work with, plain-speaking, honest, and hard-working; I came away impressed with her efforts on our behalf, as well as those of her staff. Highly recommended.


The attorneys at the Law Offices of Shorstein and Lee are very knowledgeable and professional. I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing assistance with a criminal or family law matter.
