Joy Stephenson-Laws is the founder of Proactive Health Labs (pH), a revolutionary health care company (phlabs.org) that provides consumers with the information and tools they need to achieve optimal health.
Ms. Stephenson-Law’s commitment to enhancing consumer health and positively impacting the health care industry is not new and goes beyond her work as a health care attorney. In fact, both her professional and personal lives have been dedicated to improving health care in the United States, from consumer education to being an advocate for health care providers, and from founding a health care-related philanthropy to encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
Her passion for motivating people to proactively protect their health comes from her personal experience of losing loved ones, colleagues and friends to diseases which, had they been diagnosed early enough and treated more effectively, could either have been controlled or cured.
In addition to her day-to-day leadership role with pH, Ms. Stephenson-Laws is also the founding and managing partner of Stephenson, Acquisto & Colman (SAC), the health care industry’s premier litigation law firm established in 1989. She also is co-founder and president of MoJo Marketing & Media, a company dedicated to developing ways for individuals and companies to give back to their communities through sports and entertainment. Ms. Stephenson-Laws also co-founded the Bili Project, a nonprofit organization that is driving funding and research for identifying markers for biliary cancer so that this leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States can be more effectively diagnosed and treated.
Ms. Stephenson-Laws received her B.A. from Loma Linda University in 1980 and Juris Doctor from Loyola University in 1983, and was admitted to the California Bar in 1984. Professional organizations include the American Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles, California State Bar Association, U.S. District Court-Central/Eastern, and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
