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

Restoring hope, one by one. I believe in an individualized approach to social security disablity advocacy. It is all about you, the client, as my staff and I help you navigate the often times confusing and lengthy social security process. I am committed to helping you understand the legal basis of your claim so as to better assist you before SSA.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I am a lawyer. I am admitted to practice in Iowa and New York. I worked seven years for the Social Security Administration - Office of the General Counsel in New York City. Since moving to Iowa in 1996, I have helped disabled individuals seeking the disability benefits to which they are entitled.
