About Me


While I will accept all types of insurance disputes on the behalf of the policyholder, I specialize in disability insurance. I have never lost a case. Therefore, if I take on your dispute with your insurer, you have an excellent chance at recovering your rightful benefits.


Any of my previous clients will vouch for my professionalism, empathy for your difficult situation, and positive results.
