I have been representing claimants before the social security administation since 1984. I joined the law firm of Gordon and Melun on February 2, 2017. I am continuing my practice of representing clients before the social security administration. I had previously worked for the law firm of Roberti, Wittenberg, Lauffer, Wicker and Cinski P.A. (now known as Roberti, Wicker, Lauffer and Cinski) and created the social security department that  represented claimant's throughout North Carolina and Virginia.  For over ten years I served on the Board of Directors of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives and served as the President from 2009- 2010. I continue to serve on the Council of Past Presidents who work in an advisory capacity with the Executive Director.

 

When not in the office, I am involved with my three children who are college graduates, college students and in high school. I serve as my son's assistant coach on his soccer team with CASL in Wake County. I also recently finished serving on my homeowners board of directors and for the past 4 years as the President. During my time on the homeowners board we upgraded the lighting and street signs throughout the community.

 

I have spoke dozens of times at conferences with the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives, North Carolina Associates of Justice, Disability Advocacy Section and local support groups that include Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, mental health and multiple sclerosis. I make myself available to these and other groups to speak for free in order to educate the public about social security disability and the programs that people may be eligible for.
