Albert Lee Stephens, Sr. (January 25, 1874, in State Line City, Indiana – January 15, 1965) was a United States federal Judge in California for thirty years.

In 1935, he was nominated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. He served only two years before President Roosevelt nominated him in 1937 to a position of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Stephens served on that court until his death in 1965.

He received his LL.B. degree from the University of Southern California Law School in 1903. Judge Stephens' son, Albert Lee Stephens, Jr. was also a federal judge in California.
