Excellent administrative and civil law attorney
Ms. Herr continues to assist me with my Social Security Disability Insurance claim. She clearly knows what sh is doing and understands the Soc. Sec. rules, regulations, and procedures. The case has not yet resolved, but I remain optimistic that I will eventually achieve a favorable outcome- largely because of Megan Herr’s excelente legal assistance. I would certainly recommend her to those seeking assistance when dealing with governmental agencies.
