    • Timothy Minthorn Klob

      I endorse attorney Julie Moya and her work as a Social Security disability claimant's attorney. I have found her responses to inquiries from the public on this discussion board to be thorough and well-reasoned. Julie is also knowledgeable about other benefit programs such as long-term disability insurance that have an impact on Social Security disability claims, and this wide range of knowledge adds further value to her role as a client advocate for her clients as they navigate the complex disability claims process. For these reasons, I endorse Julie in her work and would recommend her to potential clients seeking legal representation.
