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

I first became interested in Social Security Disability law in the early 1990's from my own experience having had a temporary illness, and having had to apply for Social Security disability benefits. It's the reason why I eventually became a disability attorney, and it's the reason why I only work on Social Security cases. I've seen the process from both sides, as a claimant and as an attorney, and I know how frustrating it can be. I also know, personally, what it takes to win a disability claim.
