About me

I am the founder of Joy Disability. I am a Social Security Attorney, and exclusively so, since approximately 2005.  However, prior to that, I engaged in practicing New Jersey general litigation law, including the fields of matrimonial, personal injury, motor vehicle law, criminal law, consumer protection and trust and estates, in addition to Social Security.


I gravitated towards an exclusivity in Social Security, after recognizing my affinity for a practice that is solely directed on helping others improve their lives, without having the often connected consequence of another being hurt in some way.


I built my practice from scratch and appreciated that by doing so, I could maintain my ethical standard and insist on a best practices approach for client success, that eliminates the popular practice of cutting of corners to maximize a firm's billable fees.


My passion is my clients, and the endeavor to improve their lives by obtaining for them their deserved Social Security Disability benefits.


I also enjoy assisting other firms with a need for SS guidance or direction on best practices, on a consultative basis.
