Almost 3 years and I have talked to this attorney twice, I filed for ssdi myself per her request , I did all the leg work, I made all the copies and sent copies to her office AND social security finally contacted me because some of the paperwork that they requested from her never was sent AFTER I TOOK IT TO HER OFFICE MYSELF they never sent it to social security. Then in my reconsideration I got a letter from SSI that they had sent letters and called and left messages for one Justin So&So supposedly someone at her law firm who was handling my case and had not heard back from him could I please call them, before I called them I called her law firm and asked the lady who answered the firm who this guy was and she told me that he no longer works there and hadn't been there for almost a year. WHAT?! I called ssi and talked to my case worker and she said that they had been sending letters and calling and leaving messages with NO response for over 6 months thats why they contacted me directly and that Stephanie lakes office should have notified them as soon as that attorney was no longer handleling my case and SHE DIDN'T. So for the last 3 months I have been dealing with ssi myself . A lady from ssi contacted me January 20 and asked me some questions and Approved or awarded me ssi right then and there unfortunately they did not determine that I had become disabled until DECEMBER of 2020 so I wasn't going to receive any back pay... Which I had become disabled back in May of 2018 and that's when I filed. when I called Stephanie lakes office and told them what had happened STEPHANIE LAKE HERSELF CALLED ME BACK HOURS LATER AND WAS PISSED AND RUDE and when I Became angry AND RUDE BACK her attitude changed very quick like.. Today I got a letter in the mail congratulating me on winning PART of my case and that I would be receiving a bill from her office for litigation costsas per our contract ... NOTHING in the copy of my contract says anything about LITIGATION only that there may be extra fee applied if they had to make copies and things like that but would not total more then about $300 ... Ya good luck with that I have consulted with another attorney and gathered all my evidence and he said I have a very strong case against her if I decide to hire him he would gladly take my case. Thinking strongly about it... also I asked her office several time if someone could explain the whole Disability process time and time again or asked if they had a booklet that I could read because I had NO CLUE how that whole process works AND NOTHING.

I was denied the first time I applied for disability. A previous client recommended Attorney Stephanie Lake. I consulted with the Attorney and hired her too assist me. Attorney Stephanie Lake and her team always made me feel that they cared about me and my situation. I would like too say Thank you for helping me winning my case. I appreciate you and your staff.

I was denied disability my first time. I had used a different law office that time. Frustrated I found Stephanie Lake and her firm. Let me tell you it's was a totally different experience from start to finish. They made me feel like they cared about me as a person and my claim. I live in northern Arizona so my claim was handled remotely through the mail, emails and on the phone. They were fantastic!!! They kept me updated on a regular basis, responded to my questions or concerns promptly and supplied pre postage envelopes. The prep they put into my ALJ hearing was amazing. Needless to say I received a Fully Favorable decision. Stephanie Lake and her staff made all the difference.

I've been trying to get in contact with stephanie lake but it's just a bunch of phone tag. I had a phone interview scheduled for 3pm but she called me hours beforehand and left a voicemail. I tried calling her back but she didn't answer. I left a voicemail but she still never called during our scheduled time. I waited almost an hour before calling the office but the receptionists was extremely rude. She tried arguing with me stating that the attorney did in fact call me and I told her that I called her back and even left a voicemail before our scheduled appointment time but she never called during our scheduled time. What's the point of scheduling an appointment if you're not even going to take it!? She told me that she was out of the office and hung up on me! Absolutely rude and such a waste of my time!!

I'm overly excited to see what comes. I had a firm on my case since 2015,in which I only received three calls in three years. I like the communication to the client.

Thank you Stephanie Lake for fighting for me.

They have kept me up to date on my case and advised me what to do as I wait for a hearing. I no longer have to deal with social security on my own which is the best part. When you have a disability it can be overwhelming to deal with them alone.

Stephanie Lake helped me to win my case when I thought there was no hope. I was treated with respect and fairness by Stephanie and her staff at all times. I would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone that needed a Social Security lawyer.

I’m still in litigation so not sure what the outcome will be but I feel confident that Miss Lake will win my case for me or she wouldn’t have taken me on
