After a near 6 year fight trying to achieve a disability adjudication hearing, without success, I turned to Melissa. She was thorough in her initial intake, she maintained/endured constant communication and I do mean constant communications from myself to her office and responded every time. Not once did she ask me to please stop. I was appreciative of her understanding, compassion, desire to "get this one done".
While the outcome was not a slam dunk victory and fell well short of overall expectations, she still achieved a favorable decision from the judge. I would have appreciated the considerations that Melissa had provided me, from the adjudication process of the administration itself. The system is flawed. It needs repaired. Never the less Melissa receives the 3-C's award from me....... I have a personal journey to undergo from here. It won't be easy, but I am positive if I have any questions MY attorney will respond...

Melissa was very professional and proactive. She was very confidence inspiring in a time where my faith in the Social Security system was faltering. Anytime I had a question, she always was able to get back to me with a response in a very short time, and the advice was always right on. Melissa Wohlsen projects an air of compassion and confidence along with her professionalism.

When I came to Melissa i was very discouraged having been denied my social security disability claim, after a LONG wait, coupled with having to leave my job that i loved and enjoyed. She was ALWAYS very easy to talk to and was kind and patient to read my long emails that at times contained many questions and a bit of frustration having to wait out this process. She ALWAYS got back to me in a timely manner and made me feel at ease and understood. If I were her boss i would definatly do whatevr i could to keep her and give her a big fat raise, i mean that, what she did for me meant the world to me its been a VERY VERY difficult time losing income and incurring medical bills. I would refer her or the partners to anyone seeking legal advice or help. Thank you so much! Side note: The type of case was a disability claim i didn't see that as an option to choose so i put employment/labor

I refered a family friend to Attorney Wohlsen and she was extremely pleased with her results and commented that Attorney Wohlsen was through and very prepared. These two traits makes her well suited in social security disability law.
