Thomas Hardy, a graduate of Rutgers School of Law in Camden, began his
career as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor using his Master's Degree in
Education to work with the disabled population. He focused primarily on
helping people return to work after a catastrophic illness or injury. Later,
he began working for a large Philadelphia disability insurance company where
he managed their nationwide program to assist disabled workers, and
subsequently took on supervision of all medical services. This combination
of medical and vocational knowledge made him an ideal resource for the
Federal Government which looked to him as an advisor regarding
disability-related issues. In this capacity he served as a representative of
national disability insurers to both the Social Security Administration and
the Department of Labor for over five years and currently serves on a
Federal Advisory Panel to the Social Security Administration..
After completing his legal education, Mr. Hardy opted to move from a large
corporate environment to a legal practice that directly services those most
in need of assistance. The area in which he is particularly effective is in
Social Security Disability and Long Term Disability Appeals.
