Early in his career, Dave represented hundreds of disable people seeking benefits from the Social Security Administration. This experience helped Dave better understand the devastating impact unexpected, unwanted circumstances can have on a person's life. In 2009, Dave decided to open his own practice. He now devotes all of his time to Social Security cases at the Federal Court level of appeal. Dave takes great pride in personally speaking with all clients and guiding them through this difficult process.
