Lisa R Lang


Lisa R Lang's passion for helping those with disabilities stems from her own personal experiences. Growing up with her mother who battled Multiple Sclerosis, Lisa developed a deep understanding of the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities. Her dedication was further solidified during her eight years working as a lead paralegal for an attorney with disabilities. These experiences inspired her to earn her J.D. from Lewis and Clark Law School in 1995.
Lisa began her solo practice in 2002, initially handling a variety of cases. However, her true calling became clear after she won a case for a veteran with PTSD. This victory allowed her to give back to someone who had given so much, and it fueled her dedication to advocating for those in need. Today, under the banner of Empower Disability, Lisa provides compassionate advocacy and personalized counsel, making a difference in the lives of clients across the Pacific Northwest.
