About Me

I am a former Administrative Law Judge in the Social Security Administration's Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).  As an Administrative Law Judge at SSA, I held approximately 700 hearings and made decisions on 1,000 cases.  I have more than 21 years experience in Social Security law, over 4 years of that in ODAR, first as an Attorney Advisor researching Social Security law and writing decisions for Administrative Law Judges, and than as an Administrative Law Judge. 


I know what evidence is important to a finding of disability and how to present that evidence to the Social Security Administration in a way that is most favorable to my client.  I accept cases for disability (both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income), continuing disability reviews, SSI children's claims, SSI age 18 disability redeterminations, and other Social Security issues such as overpayments.


I will work with you on filing your initial claims, submitting medical evidence to SSA and emphasizing the legal basis for your disability claim.  I will also represent you on appeal, both at reconsideration at the Disability Adjudication Service and at a hearing before an ODAR Administrative Law Judge.
