Very knowledgeable, always put me at ease
Lisa and her staff, patiently spent as much time as needed to help guide me through a rather convoluted disability claims process. It was much more involved than I was aware, but Lisa was very supportive, and helped me to succeed with my claim.

LTD and SSDI
Lisa and her assistant Penny were very thorough and engaged in our case(s). Lisa got working on things very quickly, educated us on what was needed from physicians, guided us through the process and was readily available if we needed something along the way. I can't say enough good things about Lisa and her practice. She truly advocated for us. First case won a favorable decision and the second case is still in the works.

Fully Favorable at the Bench
Lisa Welton and her Legal Assistant Penny were very understanding and always helpful throughout my entire SSDI disability case from the Reconsideration appeal to the ALJ hearing where the judge commended her for the through pre- hearing brief that she submitted and granted a fully favorable decision on the bench which I understand is a very rare. I can't Thank her enough. I highly recommend Lisa Welton and her team for your disability case.
