I’ve been practicing in the area of Social Security since 2003. I graduated law school at Michigan State University in 1999. While there, I served on the school’s law review and as a research assistant for some of my professors. I also interned for a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and clerked for a trial court judge in Flint, Michigan. This provided me an excellent education in what judges look for when deciding their cases, and whether to grant a claimant a favorable decision. I worked as an associate attorney helping people obtain worker’s compensation and auto no-fault benefits. I came to learn there are so many people who suffer a serious illness or injury, leaving them unable to work, and unable to provide for themselves and their families and get the medical care they need.
I started my own law practice in 2016 so I could devote my full attention to my Social Security clients. From my office in Dearborn, I assist clients with their Social Security retirement benefits, spousal benefits, benefits for children, SSI, and Social Security disability (sometimes called SSD or RSDI). I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan Social Security Lawyers Section, and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.
The Social Security Administration doesn’t make it easy for you to obtain your Social Security disability benefits. For some, it takes several months. From my experience, there are a great many people out there who qualify for Social Security benefits, or have a family member that does, but don’t even know it, or don’t know how to properly qualify. You want an experienced, dedicated, and determined representative beside you from the time you begin pursuing benefits
Social Security benefits are there for those with a physical or mental condition that keeps them from being able to work full-time, for however long that condition lasts. SSI benefits are available for a child with a physical or mental functional limitation.
I am here to help, and look forward to hearing from you!
