I never considered a career in the law until nearing the end of college at the University of Virginia. I decided I wanted to do something important that could have a positive impact on people.
We are the only firm, that I am aware of, that handles only workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability cases. Some firms handle other practice areas, but we only focus on these two, where other firms advertise for workers’ compensation and/or Social Security disability and then actually refer the cases out.
I had a case a few years ago involving a UPS driver who was attempting to deliver a package and came across a murder scene. This triggered PTSD. In Virginia, it is very difficult to obtain benefits for a psychological injury without any physical injury. We lost at the hearing level and then turned the case around after two appeals.
We issue written discovery, prepare our client for a deposition, take depositions of adverse witnesses, talk to physician(s), review the entire record which can consume a banker’s box, and prepare for the hearing.
For most of our clients we are like guides in a foreign land. They often have no idea what is going on and need the process explained in plain English. I am always honest with my clients to make it clear how their case looks.
I am accessible via email, text, and phone. I always make myself available for conferences as well. I also call my clients on their birthdays.
I typically know how a case is going to go in advance. I can tell my clients that I’ve handled thousands of workers’ compensation cases and hundreds of SSD cases.
Helping people get closure on their workers’ compensation cases and get their benefits in Social Security disability cases.
I tell them to be honest with the judges.
