About Scott

Learn Scott’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing Social Security law for 29 years as it is a passion of mine.  My background working in a hospital and getting my Masters from University of Cincinnati Medical College helps me understand the medical and psychiatric evidence necessary to win cases.  I am an advocate for people with impairments, routinely giving seminars to doctors, social workers, mental health agencies, and consumer groups to educate them about how to get the information to Social Security to win claims.

Excellent Lawyer for SSI and Disability
Scott was a great help to me with my SSI Disability case. He helped me with all the forms and paperwork needed to apply for disability and was by my side during the court hearings. He helped me acquire all the medical and background information I needed also. He was very courteous and always answered any questions I had. He was very prompt and always returned my phone calls. His assistant was also very knowledgeable. He kept me informed every step of the way. Scott is a very caring person who always took time to listen to my problems even if it was not about my case. I would highly recommend him.
