About me

My practice is devoted to representing claimants seeking disability benefits, whether through the Social Security Administration, or long-term disability insurance through work or direct purchase. I represent claimants at all levels of appeal, in SSA and State and Federal Courts. With 30 years of practice, I have successfully represented thousands of claimants. Proceedings before the Social Security Administration are confidential.
