  • Megann Senfleben Hendrix

    As part of my elder/disability practice, I often run into situations in which my client needs to apply for Social Security Disability or appeal a denial. Kashoua Yang is the attorney I call in all of those cases. She is very knowledgable about the application and appeal process. She is also a caring person and my clients enjoy working with her.
