Terrific Lawyer!
I hired Ms. Danish to help me deal with two disability claims, one with Northwestern Mutual and one with UNUM. Ms. Danish handled both claims in an expert fashion and I can honestly say you will not find a better disability lawyer. Not only that, she has continued to stand by me and work with me over the last couple of years handling all the followup required. If you are looking for a disability attorney, look no further. This is the lawyer you want. I'd give her ten stars if I could.

Competent, friendly, helpful
The process of applying for Social Security Disability is daunting. I don't know how people with a support system in place can go it alone. With Jennifer's guidance and my husband's assistance we were able to complete the process successfully. Not having had to ever deal with this situation required some handholding on Jennifer's part. She was very helpful as were her office staff who we frequently spoke with.

An Excellent Attorney
She made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. Communication whether in person, phone, or email was always prompt and courteous. The office staff was always pleasant too. Jennifer Danish is not only up to date on changing laws but is an efficient organizer. She was able to quickly sort through a complex amount of information at a time when I was overwhelmed. She is a true professional who I feel is passionate about fighting for her clients. I never felt like another file on a shelf. Jennifer and her team will go the distance to resolve your legal matter. Thank you.
