Who We Are

Unlike some who advertise, I am a local attorney. I have been practicing law and representing disabled or injured clients for over 25 years. You can make an appointment to come see me whenever its convenient. If you prefer, we can do everything by telephone or video conference (except, of course, the Hearing). We will meet and prepare at least a couple of times before the Hearing to make sure you are ready, know what to expect, and know how to handle yourself. And unlike some representatives, I don't limit my practice to the easy cases just so I can claim a higher win rate.

1. Your Benefits: You've paid into the system with every paycheck that had taxes taken out. Social Security has taken its share every time. Now that your ill or injured, and your doctor agrees that you cannot return to work, it's time for your benefits to be approved.

2. Hire a Lawyer: Schedule a free consultation, below. Obviously I want to represent people (it's my job), but I am willing to meet with you for free, just to talk about your case, how strong it is, what can be done to make it stronger, and what you can expect from the process.

3. Attorney Fees: I get paid only when we win your case. And my fees are closely regulated by Social Security. I limit my fee to no more than 25% of past due benefits; I never charge a fee on your continuing monthly benefits after we win; and my fee is capped at $6,000.

4: Fighting on Appeal: Call for an appointment or appeal packet, while there's still time remaining after your denial. There's no reason to give in, and no reason to appear without an attorney at your side.
