Since 2001, I have represented injured and disabled people throughout Vermont. I represent plaintiffs and claimants in automobile accident, personal injury, workers' compensation, wrongful death, Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, and long-term disability claims. Suffering a serious injury or disability is extremely stressful event. Not only must one deal with the pain and suffering of the injury or disease itself, but often one must also contend with lost time from work, financial stress, and great uncertaintly about the future. A wide range of laws effect the injured and disabled, and the ways these laws interact can be complex. I take an all-encompassing approach with my clients. I do not focus on one particular claim or one particualr benefit. If the client's circumstances warrant, I will pursue compensation and benefits from multiple sources, in order to put my client in the best financial position. I understand the complexity in the laws as they effect the injured and disabled, and I aim to negotiate them to my client's best advantage.

In addition to my Vermont practice, I also represent clients in Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income claims thoughout New Hampshire and northeastern New York.

Experienced & Knowledgeable attorney
After consulting with a handful of attorneys, Craig by far was the most knowledgeable. He was honest from the beginning and understood the legal process of dealing with my particular case. He kept me abreast every step of my appeal. I would definitely use Craig as my attorney again.

Disability
Craig Jarvis did an excellent job representing me through the entire disability process. His office helped with filling paperwork, accessing my medical records and brought the best case he could when it came time for the judge to decide my case. As a younger individual who suffers from migraines, I thought it would be extremely hard to win a disability case. With the help of Craig Jarvis I can now focus on finding a treatment that'll help with my medical conditions, instead of worrying about missing work and not being able to pay the bills I have.

DBS
I hired Craig to help me navigate the SSDI system. He took over my case, gave great advice when I needed it, and took an enormous stress from my shoulders by chasing down the needed documentation. He advised me on additional evidence that would help, and pleaded my case to the judge. I wouldn't have won without him.
