How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I enjoy helping people.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Knowledge is a good thing. We always encourage clients to be aware of the legal issues. On our website we have quite a bit of useful information about social security laws and procedures.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I review all of the documents that clients prepare.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Our expertise is in presenting cases to judges. This expertise is the result of years of experience and continual learning. It would be difficult to teach a client everything that would be necessary in a hearing.

David G. Lee

I have had my own office representing individual's claims against government entities, insurance companies and corporations for 25 years.

I have had somewhere in the neighborhood of one thousand administrative hearings. Over the years, you get a good understanding of what is effective and what is not.

I am good at what I do largely because I read and write well. Unlike many lawyers, I can speak plainly and make my ideas easily understandable.

I am relaxed, calm, and easy to talk to.

Personal interests:

Like everybody, I am interested in health, happiness and family.
