My Experience With Iowa Social Security Disability Claims

After graduating law school in 1989, I began my career as a lawyer working for the Social Security Administration in its Office of the General Counsel. I did my job well and learned quite a bit about the workings of Social Security Administration, but I knew that I did not go to law school to help the government. I went to law school to help people who could not help themselves – the poor, the disadvantaged, those at the end of their rope. I left the Social Security Administration and moved to Iowa, where I have been representing disability claimants since 1996. I was appointed to the Board of Directors of NOSSCR–the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives–for 2010 – 2011.

Restoring Hope, One by One. That is my goal in representing Iowa Social Security disability claimants. I pride myself on providing close, personal attention to all my clients at all stages of the administrative process. I take the time necessary to gather all the facts, assemble all the medical records, and carefully analyze your case. I will help you prepare for your hearing so you that can relax and give your best testimony. I won’t give up on your case. If necessary, I will pursue your appeal all the way to federal court.

Though the process of obtaining Social Security disability benefits often is frustrating, it seldom is hopeless. Please contact me if you would like my advice about your claim.
