Stephanie D. DiSarro-Anderson, Esq.
"The two biggest complaints that I hear from individuals that have dealt with attorneys in the past, are that they did not receive (timely) return phone calls and/or that the attorney seemed like he/she couldn't be bothered to explain things. That is not me and not at all how I practice law. I treat each client as an individual, with individual needs. I do my best to return calls same day and explain everything my client needs to know until he/she has a full understanding of what is going on."
Stephanie’s practical legal experience began in 1994. While in college, she worked at a small personal injury law firm and was also a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for the State of RI.
