    I have known Stephanie for several years. Stephanie is smart, diligent, tough and friendly. Whenever I have a question related to Family Law and Social Security matters for my clients Stephanie makes herself available and has an answer. On all issues related to Family Law and Social Security I have and will refer family and clients to Stephanie's office.
