I understand the positive impact that an appropriate benefit award can have. That is why I explore all options and potential arguments to find creative ways to win and/or settle your case for the most successful resolution.
From your FREE initial consultation through the resolution of your claim, I will keep you apprised of each development in your case.
I usually work on a contingency basis, so you will not pay legal fees unless you have been awarded benefits.

Guiding people through complex processes required to obtain benefits

I represent clients in the following types of matters:

Workers' compensation filings

If you suffered a serious accident on the job and cannot work, I can file a claim for compensation and medical care, represent you at a hearing if needed, request an Award to protect your rights, guide you through any vocational placement, and negotiate a lump sum settlement against the insurance company.


If you have been denied Social Security Disability, SSA will want supportive medical evidence explaining why you are so limited that you are unemployable. I can send you a Residual Functional Capacity Questionnaire for your doctors specific to your medical impairments and how that affects your ability to work. My firm has represented clients in more than 1,000 successful Social Security disability hearings and can advise you about your eligibility.
