My brother was referred to Laura McKinnon, they said they would take his case the only thing they looked at was the law judge summary but never looked at his actual medical and mental disabilities, as a matter of fact they never contacted one of his prior phychiatrist or md. According to the law when an attorneys turns down your claim you are entitled to an explanation as to the reason they did not accept your disability case and my brother has tried at least four times to conract miss. McKinnon as to the reason why she would not take his case. Her secretary stated that she wrote an explanation letter as to why my case was not accepted, this was over four months ago and four attempts. Sincerely, Ty.

I was denied SSD mainly because of my age and I knew it would be hard to win my case. Laura Mckinnon and her team handled everything for my appeal quickly and very professionally. I would recommend them to anyone needing a great disability attourney.

Laura and her staff put my case together and impressed the judge so much that, a decision was made without me talking to the judge in person. Very impressed with the professional work that I received. Would recommend her to anyone needing assistance work a SS disability case.

I served on the leadership of the Social Security section of a national lawyer's organization with Laura, and I know her to be one of the most driven, organized, professional advocates practicing in this field today. Anyone in Arkansas and the surrounding states would be well-served to hire Laura and her firm for Social Security matters.

Laura is deserving of the highest rating. She is easily one of the top attorneys in Arkansas and you will not find a lawyer that is more dedicated and determined to obtain justice for her clients. On top of all that, she is a really nice person. She has my strongest endorsement!
