I graduated from LSU Law School in 1985. From 1988 to 1993, I worked as an Attorney for the Alexandria Louisiana and New Orleans Louisiana Offices of Hearings and Appeals writing the decisions for the Administrative Law Judges. The five years I spent working as an attorney for the Social Security Administration gave me extensive insight into how the judges evaluate and decide these claims. I now use that insight to help my clients appeal a denial of benefits.My experience:
I started my own law practice in 1993, handling Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability claims exclusively. In 21 years of private practice, I have handled thousands of claims. Having handled such a large number of cases, I am very familiar with all the major physical and mental medical conditions (and some very rare ones too), and how those conditions are evaluated under the Social Security Listing of Impairments. I am able to quickly read medical records for the most important details that should be brought to the judge’s attention. I am experienced in questioning Vocational Experts to elicit testimony necessary for the judge to determine that a claimant is unable to engage in any work activity. I am knowledgeable about the appeals process after a denial at the administrative hearing level, and know which appeals arguments are most likely to be persuasive.My personal interest in helping you and your loved ones:
In most cases, the Social Security disability appeals process is a long and grueling one. As I see it, my job is to ease your burden and to move the process along as smoothly and efficiently as possible. I take a personal interest in all my clients. I handle both adult and child disability claims.
If you live in Louisiana, Arkansas, west Mississippi or east Texas, and you or someone you love has been denied Social Security disability benefits, I can help. Please contact me.
