I have practiced a few areas of law but have found that my absolute favorite is Social Security Disability. In fact, I now practice this area of law exclusively. I truly enjoy partnering with my clients in order to present the best case possible.
My background as a mental health therapist adds another dimension to my practice, as claims for disability based on mental illness alone can be a bit more difficult than those based on a physical impairment.
My practice philosophy is to provide individual attention to my clients at every step of their claim. I have heard far too many horror stories of claimants who hired an attorney from a large firm, only to have all contact be with assistants up until the day of the hearing when their attorney finally spoke with them. Good communication is vital to these cases, and I need to know my client's story in order to effectively represent them.
