Summary

I went to law school because I wanted the opportunity to both help people and to work for myself. After graduating from the College of William and Mary School of Law in 1992, much of my practice was focused on personal injury litigation; however, I noticed I derived the greatest satisfaction from helping my Social Security disability clients through the frustrating and confusing Social Security disability application and appeals process. At the conclusion of a case, my clients would come in person to hug me, to thank me, and to tell me about the difference I had made in their lives. When I started my own firm, in 2007, I decided to focus my practice primarily on representing people in Social Security disability claims. One of the great things about starting your own practice is that you have the ability to create a practice that serves your life, instead of your life serving your practice. I have created a practice in line with my values. Of course, I want to make a living. I have four kids, one in college, but I also want to do some good in the world while making a living. I know that I am helping people to make smart choices to improve their lives. I love my work!
