For the first five years of her career, she practiced criminal defense. Since that time, she has devoted herself to plaintiff’s work. She established Stratigakos Law in 1996 in order to provide personalized service to her clients which she was unable to accomplish at a large firm. Ms. Stratigakos has lectured at clinics, companies and medical organizations.
She is also a proud Greek-American and speaks fluent Greek.
“Being the daughter of immigrants I was raised appreciating that we lived in a country with a fair and just court system. That each person has a voice and that voice can make a difference. I learned the importance of individual rights. After becoming an attorney, I took those beliefs and convictions and dedicated my career to pursuing justice for every one of my clients.”
