Summary
My life’s calling is to hold insurance companies accountable for the promises they make. My father was a disabled veteran who worked hard his entire life only to face unfair obstacles in seeking disability benefits. I understand my clients would give anything to be healthy and back at work. I endeavor to effectively tell my clients’ stories and creatively challenge the limitations of the law. I work diligently to secure the best possible outcome for those I represent.

What Clients Say About Me
My clients generally feel a sense of relief, because I am often the first person to truly listen to them. I take on their challenges as if they are my own. My clients find I am passionate and knowledgeable. I am attentive to their needs and keep them apprised about their cases. I love to hear my clients say that they feel like they are an extension of my family.

Summary
I have been helping clients secure LTD disability benefits for nearly twenty years. Disability law is complex and difficult to navigate for those who don’t practice it exclusively. I enjoy the analysis and attention to detail this area of law demands. I will review and investigate your claim and identify the legal issues. My priority is helping you understand the process while fighting to get you the best outcome possible.

What Clients Say About Me
My clients appreciate my thoroughness, dedication, and loyalty. They are grateful for my willingness to fight for them against large corporations, the government, or big law firms.  I am often described as honest, focused, and persistent. Clients often share they are confident in my advice and advocacy for them because of my sincerity and diligence.

Summary
I enjoy the opportunity to work with the underdog. I’ve seen good people get used up and hung out to dry by bureaucracies and large corporations. My sense of purpose is fighting for these people. Since joining the firm, I’ve drafted Social Security appeals, prepared cases for hearings, and represented clients at hearings. Today, I take the lessons of those years of Social Security disability experience and apply them to long-term disability appeals and litigation.

What Clients Say About Me
My clients will tell you that I’m dependable. I’m not arrogant or brash (as lawyers often are). I will know your case, and I will know how best to win it. I’m a great listener, friendly, and patient. I am composed and confident. Above all, am eager learn about my clients, and I take pleasure in seeing them catch the breaks they so often need and deserve.
