Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes. At our first meeting, your concerns will be heard. You will tell me everything that is happening to you and your Social Security disability claim. You can share whatever you think is relevant. You will tell me your medical conditions in detail. Your questions will be answered.

At the first opportunity, we will go over your medical records together. At all times, you will receive our advice and guidance. Throughout this process, I will be there to deal with the government on your behalf, and I will evaluate your claim to see if it qualifies for an early decision.

When it is time for the hearing, we will prepare thoroughly, together, so that you will be able to present your story in a clear and consistent manner. Since you will have shared everything with me during the process, I will be able to communicate to the Judge just who you really are. Together we will be able to help the Judge understand the reality of your situation.
