Kathryn Dicus, author of "A Treating Physician's Guide to Social Security Disability Benefits" (available on Amazon), started representing Social Security Disability applicants immediately after graduating from Villanova Law School. As an attorney at a cost management company for long-term disability insurance carriers, this position offered a unique opportunity to learn about disability representation
and the nuances of long-term disability. After making the decision to move to Phoenix, Arizona, Kathryn worked as a staff attorney for the Arizona Governor’s Regulatory Review Council and as the public records and open meeting law attorney for the Arizona Ombudsman Citizens’ Aide. While working in state government, Kathryn continued to represent disability clients on a part-time basis. As time went on, the disability representation proved to be a more fulfilling career. In 2016, Kathryn transitioned to full-time disability representation.
Since 2016, Dicus Disability, L.L.C. has represented hundreds of clients successfully in front of the Social Security Administration and in federal district court. In 2017, Kathryn presented at the annual conference for the National Organization for Social Security Claimants’ Representatives to attorneys on appellate litigation. In 2019, Kathryn was very proud to be part of passing state legislation making medical records free for applicants appealing a Social Security disability denial. Not only did this statute help disabled individuals have quicker access to records, it also saved significant attorney time. Kathryn was featured in the Arizona Attorney Magazine discussing this legislation and encouraging attorneys in other practice areas to discuss disability benefits with their injured and chronically ill clients.
