About me

I have been practicing Social Security law since 1978.  I find assisting the disabled in obtaining their rightful benefits very rewarding.  My office gives very personal attention to my clients.  My clients are not handled by paralegals or associates unfamiliar with their cases.  Each question is answered by me personally and I am the attorney who sees the case through to the end.


I also enjoy helping our Veterans who are often confused and disillusioned by the VA system.  I have represented World War II Veterans in obtaining needed pension benefits, Korean War Vets with service connected injuries, and Vietnam Veterans suffering from PTSD and Agent Orange related conditions.  Lately, I have seen an increase in cases from the first Gulf War and Iraq conflicts.  It is an honor and privilege to assist these brave men and women who gave so much to us.


In addition to my law practice, I am a volunteer speaker for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and serve on the Board of Trustees of Curemonos, a non profit assisting underserved Latinas diagnosed with breast cancer. These two organizations are important to me as I am a 13 year breast cancer survivor.
