SAC Expands Office Network to San Diego


Leading Healthcare Law Firm’s Third Office in California is
Key to Western U.S. Growth Plan

SAN DIEGO, June 14, 2016 – Stephenson, Acquisto & Colman (SAC), the leading healthcare reimbursement law firm in the Western United States, has established an office in San Diego to better serve its growing roster of healthcare clients in this high-growth area of California. The new office, which joins existing and long-standing offices in Burbank and Pleasanton, is part of the firm’s expansion plans in the Western United States. SAC currently represents patients and healthcare providers in seven states in the region.

“SAC has been representing and helping clients in the San Diego area since our founding 25 years ago,” commented Joy Stephenson-Laws, the firm’s founding and managing partner. “These include some of the most well-known healthcare providers in the area such as Tri-City Medical Center and Sharp HealthCare. San Diego, with more than 25 hospitals and counting, has one of the fastest growing healthcare industries in the country. Given this growth, it was clear that San Diego would be the ideal location for our third California office.”

Given the importance of the San Diego market to SAC, Stephenson-Laws is relocating to the area to head up the firm’s new office, which is located in Carlsbad. “We are very proud of the role we play in assuring the financial and operational health of California’s healthcare system,” she commented. “And we are equally proud of the expanded role we will play in the San Diego healthcare community.”
