Why I am Different

  • I answer my own telephone. When you call my office and I am not busy, you will speak to me — not to an administrative assistant. I try to return all telephone calls within 24 hours. I will not be a stranger to you.
  • I listen well. To be able to do that, I will spend a lot of time talking to you. I schedule two-hour initial client meetings to give both of us plenty of time to get to know one another and to answer all of your questions.
  • I’ll do paperwork for you. We’ll work together to complete any Social Security forms or questionnaires.
  • I will thoroughly prepare you for your hearing (should one be needed). I usually schedule a three-hour meeting the week of your hearing to go over your testimony (that is, the type of questions I will ask you and what the judge or others might ask you) and to give you tips on how to be a good witness. I also review your case thoroughly so that, at the hearing, I can answer any question the judge might ask. My goal is to make it easy for the judge to rule in your favor.
  • I don’t boast about how many cases I’ve won. But I know that many of you are interested in won-lost percentages as a factor in selecting an attorney. For those of you who are interested, I have won close to 92% of my Social Security disability cases in a ten-year period from 2002 to 2012. But having said that, it is important to remember that successful outcomes in other cases (even those with issues similar to yours) is no guarantee that you will win your case. I can't make that promise; no one can. But what I do guarantee is that I will put in the time and effort needed to present your case in the best possible way.
