Attorney Freddy Saavedra, who practices Social Security Disability Law at the Law Offices of Stephanie Lake, P.C., in Phoenix, has been elected to the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) as President for Region XIV, covering all of Arizona and Nevada. His role with HNBA is to help grow the membership and also connect to the Hispanic community at large. “I am humbled by the honor and look forward to growing a vibrant Hispanic legal community,” said Saavedra.
HNBA is a not-for-profit, nonpartisan, national membership association that represents the interests of Hispanic attorneys, judges, law professors, legal assistants, law students, and legal professionals in the United States and its territories. Since 1972 the HNBA has acted as a force for positive change within the legal profession by creating opportunities for Hispanic lawyers and by helping generations of lawyers to succeed.
Saavedra recently joined the Law Offices of Stephanie Lake, P.C. a Social Security Disability law practice. As a disabled U.S. Army veteran, Saavedra navigated the VA process himself when he sought his own benefits before receiving his law degree and knows firsthand how complicated the system is. “I want to help disabled clients receive the Social Security Disability benefits they’ve earned,” said Saavedra.
An Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law graduate, Saavedra also recently graduated from the Valle del Sol Hispanic Leadership Institute, and will soon be starting a Leading for Change Fellowship, an organization that develops the next generation of civic leaders, where he will continue to grow his leadership skills. He has also been elected to the board of Esperanca, a Phoenix global nonprofit, that works to improve health and provide hope for the families in the poorest communities of the world through sustainable disease prevention, education and treatment.
