Arizona Social Security
Disability Attorneys

Experience. Compassion. Local. A Winning Combination.

When it comes to SSDI and SSI, experience and compassion matters most. From applying for benefits, appealing denials to disability hearings our team of SSD lawyers work together to ensure every client gets the best outcome as early as possible. It’s also an advantage that we are very familiar with the judges and examiners in both of the Phoenix and Tucson offices.

Summary
I understand my clients deeply care about validation. When we win their case, I see joy and relief, but the validation of finally feeling believed matters most. Clients hire me for my experience, knowledge and will to win. They also want me to hear what really matters to them and to convey that to the Judge. I take that responsibility very seriously and fight for them as strongly as possible.

What Clients Say About Me
When clients thank me for helping them, I say, “It’s my job, but also my pleasure.” I feel so fortunate to earn a living and support my family by helping others. My largest source for new clients is referrals from happy past clients. I am very proud of that.

Summary
I firmly believe there’s no substitute for good old-fashioned hard work. That’s why I prepare intensely for every case and never lose sight of what’s at stake. Behind every case is a person (or family) counting on me to win their benefits. That’s an awesome responsibility I don’t take lightly. The key to victory is often buried in piles of medical records and paperwork. You can trust I’ll work hard to find it.

What Clients Say About Me
Client often say they arrived anxious but feel relieved after they meet with me. The SSD process is extremely complex, which adds stress to the already difficult situation of dealing with disability. My clients appreciate I take time to explain the process in detail. They say this transforms their anxiety into trust.

Summary
Clients need an SSD lawyer they can really trust. I pride myself on being an SSD attorney my clients can truly trust. I recognize they come to me when they are injured, in pain, and unsure of the disability process. I respect and understand the importance of first, listening carefully to each client’s unique concerns, and then providing clear guidance and sound legal advice to get through this difficult time.

What Clients Say About Me
Clients say I am a highly skilled, knowledgeable attorney, which I appreciate. Even more rewarding is how much they appreciate my genuine compassion for their special circumstances and the challenges they face. That I am thorough and thoughtful, leaving no questions unanswered, is praise I often receive from clients, as well.
