I do not take the trust that our clients place in us for granted. We offer our hand to people as they’re navigating through periods of incredible stress and uncertainty. When someone accepts our hand, they trust that we’ll guide them through the thickets and into a more secure financial future.
I have the best job in the world. Almost every day, I am able to help individuals whose livelihood is threatened by disability. I am able to fight the good fight against unscrupulous insurance companies on behalf of the disabled.
This work is rewarding because I get to ensure my clients receive top notch legal representation and help them secure the best possible outcome under the circumstances.
My goal is to provide the representation that gets my clients the benefits they are rightfully entitled to under their policies. I advocate by providing personalized strategies to develop claims to be as strong as possible to combat any defenses the insurance company might have.
I have forged many close relationships with my clients and find that to be extremely rewarding. Knowing that I have made a difference in the lives of my clients means the world to me.
I'm happy to work for a firm that helps make the complicated process of receiving long term disability benefits easier for our clients. That way they can stress less and focus more on the most important thing—their health.
Senior Legal Assistant
Advocating for injured or ill clients is what I find most rewarding about my work and what has been the foundation to my legal career. I have a powerful drive to fight for client’s rights and livelihoods against insurers.
Each client is going through a unique struggle, and only they can fully comprehend the extent of their suffering. I seek to extend a helping hand during this difficult time and put my experience and expertise to work on behalf of the client while they chart unfamiliar, painful and often times terrifying waters.
I pride myself in building relationships and trust with every client I speak with, ensuring that everyone feels comfortable during such a vulnerable stage in their lives.
Client Intake & Relationship Manager
I am fortunate enough to work with a team that prioritizes the well-being and security of those suffering with a disability. I get to help people through an immensely troubling time and support them during some of their most vulnerable and unexpected moments.
