Our office is located in Arizona, but we frequently represent our clients across the country and we employ attorneys licensed by State Bars of Arizona and California.  Ms. Lake is also admitted to practice in the Federal District Court of Colorado and Arizona.  While Stephanie Lake may not be the attorney that represents you at a disability hearing, as the principal attorney she works with our Social Security Disability team to win every case!

We are passionate about getting the disabled their benefits.
