About me

I have been handling Social Security Disability cases since 1994.  I started my legal career as a Staff Attorney for the Social Security Administration.  I rose through the ranks and became an Adjudication Officer and a Supervisory Staff Attorney.  I left SSA in order to "move to the other side" to represent people who need help with their disability cases.  I've successfully handled thousands of cases, with a win rate of over 99%.  I have a clear understanding of the medical and legal issues involved in these cases.   At my office, you will not just be a number.  I will personally know your name.  I will personally make sure that you and I are both prepared if we have to have a hearing on your case.    I also have handled numerous cases in bankruptcy, workers compensation, personal injury, medical malpractice and small claims.  I maintain a network of highly respected attorneys in every field.

  • Jonathan C. Teller

    I highly endorse this lawyer. I have handled a few thousand disability claims but I only take cases which will come to hearing in the five boroughs of NY City. When a Prospective client calls from Long Island, Kerie is the one. She knows it all, truly. Because she worked for the SSA before opening her office, she knows how the system really works. She knows the things which lawyers like me, who never worked for the agency, don't know. She has given me so many useful pointers over the years and, I don't know how she does it, but she has an uncanny ability to know the right people when you need someone with special gifts in any particular area. She introduced me to people who were on the rise up through the system. She is one of the very few very good lawyers handling what we call "private disability" which means union or company plans. That is a rare skill to have. She is also a wizard in Bankruptcy, I have heard.
