Attorney Katelyn Burke Mills was invaluable in my process of applying for social Security disability. I would not have been able to navigate the paperwork and appeals process without her patient coaching and persistence in following up needed steps. She took care of many details such as obtaining medical records and filing the appeal forms. I would certainly have given up if it had not been for her encouragement through each step. Katelyn suggested obtaining a cognitive evaluation through my insurance or paying privately. It was not something I would have sought on my own as it is a difficult evaluation. However, that evaluation certainly helped my case. She made sure I was prepared for court so I could participate calmly. I was successfully approved for disability within a surprisingly short overall time frame. Communication with Attorney Burke Mills was always prompt by phone or email. She checked on my case through court records and updated me with progress and next steps. I would most definitely recommend Attorney Burke Mills to anyone applying for disability.

Excellent Lawyer
Katelyn goes above and beyond any Attorney/Client relationship, she has exceeded my expectations with her due diligence and details into specific matters. Her attention to details and data gathering hugely made a difference in my case, which was denied previously two times. With her help and directions, she was a true professional in front of the Judge Law. From the proceedings which I was a nervous wreck, she calmly walked me trough the process. From the time I contacted Katelyn I knew I was in better hands than the previous years on trying this process alone. I would Highly recommend Katelyn for any legal proceedings..... Steve P.

Excellent experience!
I hired Katelyn to handle my Social security disability claim. From our first meeting until the end of the procedure I felt comfortable that I had the correct person on my team. At all times thru the process there was never a phone call not answered or returned in a timely fashion. I was constantly kept up to date on my claim. Yes, I would feel comfortable referring Katelyn.

highly recomended
Katelyn Burke really did an outstanding job for me during a very stressful time. When I got injured Katelyn was highly recommended to me to help me get disability benefits, and she did not fail. I was always kept in the loop as to what was going on, she was available when I needed to talk or had a concern she went through the whole process step by step Katelyn really knew her stuff I really felt like I was her only client I would recommend her to any one who needs a good social security lawyer in their corner.
