Kate has represented hundreds of clients at every level of review with the Social Security Administration. She has 14 years of experience handling Social Security Disability cases and is well versed in what it takes to win you benefits. Kate knows the intricacies of what the Social Security Administration needs and is adept at navigating the often overwhelming process for her clients.
Kate also assists people seeking short- and long-term disability benefits. Kate has been successful at winning benefits for clients at every stage of the process, whether it is through their initial application, the internal appeal, pre-litigation settlement negotiations, mediation or litigation. Since most people have disability insurance benefits through their employment, many of her clients cases are governed by ERISA. She also represents people who have individual disability policies that are governed by state law.
