About me

I am a an attorney with experience working as a Medical Consultant for Social Security Disability.  I am also a board-certified pediatrician with over 20 years of primary care clinical experience.  I graduated law school in 2005 and since then have worked in various areas including Social Security Disability and Guardianship.  For two years I worked for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Washington, D.C. in such varied areas as medical device policy, pediatric clinical research on adverse outcomes, and legislative issues.  I am happily married to my law partner, David H. Abrams and together we enjoy our pets (all rescues).  I assist David H. Abrams with consumer rights and bankruptcy cases, but my main area of practice is Social Security Disability.  If you have any questions regarding filing a Social Security Disability claim, and would like them answered by a physician (who understands your impairments and your medical records) who has experience working for Social Security Disability, please give me a call for a free consultation!
