I have always wanted to help people. As a 17 year old freshman in college, I decided to study psychology as a major. Now, many years later, as an attorney it has become clear to me that the people I meet with the most pressing need for social security disability, are truly people in need of good legal representation. Our office staff takes great pride in doing good work for good people, and obtaining earned benefits for our clients. We welcome your calls, emails and/or questions.
My grandfather was a lawyer in the 1920's through 1950's. My father was an attorney from 1950 through 2006, when he died. He never did retire! He loved legal work so much that he literally "died with his boots on." My father's brother and my uncle was also an extremely bright lawyer. He was number one in his class and Phi Beta Kappa. Growing up surrounded by these men and their work, filled me with a desire to practice law for the basic good of all people - not just the elite, or big money companies.
My work as a social security advocate, workers' compensation lawyer and auto accident lawyer is unique in that all the work on every file is either performed by me, or if done by my paralegal, it is supervised by me. Basically, "nothing moves in or out" of this firm unless I have approved it. So, you can be sure that one attorney will be handling your claim from beginning to end.
