Joel Roberts

Joel Roberts has practiced Social Security disability law, either for nonprofit organizations or in the course of his own part-time private practice, since 1998, and has worked for nonprofits as a benefits counselor under the federal BPAO and WIPA grants. He has extensive experience with both the Social Security application and appeals process and benefits counseling for SSDI/SSI beneficiaries who are returning to work. As a person with multiple disabilities (HIV, a visual impairment, and mobility issues due to a foot injury), the disability field is a calling for him rather than just a job. Mr. Roberts moved to San Francisco in 1979 after completing law school at the University of North Carolina and was a legal editor in the field of taxation for Commerce Clearing House and Matthew Bender for 13 years.
