We treat each client with respect and compassion. When we commit to a client's meritorious case, we carefully and tirelessly develop the administrative record. The process of filing for disability can be daunting and frustrating, so we will actually file the SSD application online for our clients. We will pursue the disability claim at the initial, reconsideration, and hearing levels as well as at the Appeals Council. We are one of the few firms which will litigate disability cases in Federal District Court where we have had a 75% win-rate.
We stay in constant communication with the client. We provide solutions to disability-related problems that may come up in the disability process including referrals to facilities that can assist with securing housing and medical care. For example, if a claimant is facing foreclosure, we can submit a "dire need" request to have the court expidite the case.
There is nothing better than wisdom borne of experience. Paulette has truly been in the trenches for over 40 years practicing disability law. While every case is different, most standard problems have been addressed at some point in her career and she can bring a unique perspective. The combination of experience, compassion, and diligence allows Paulette and her firm of ace lawyers to be equipped to handle even the most difficult cases and bring home a win for our clients.
We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
