Stephanie’s strongest and best attribute is that of being an empathetic listener. One of her clients had this to say:
Stephanie listens-and she understands. She understands what I have been going through-the pain, the disability, and the frustration of not being able to work and take care of my family, and the medical bills piling up. She is a great lawyer, exactly because of those skills. She has been a blessing to me.
