For more than 25 years, I have represented individuals throughout Maryland in this process. I am well-known and respected in the legal community and by those who preside over the hearing and make the decision. I will put my experience and reputation to work for you, advocating on your behalf to see that your claim has the best chance of being approved and that you receive the SSD or SSI (Supplemental Security Income) benefits you are entitled to and deserve.

Applying for SSDI

Individuals applying for SSDI need to be aware that it can be awarded based on two different categories. In some claims, a single particular condition or injury can qualify a person for benefits. Most people, however, must put together a claim based on several factors that, together, explains the disability. These factors include age, employment and vocational training and experience (or lack thereof), job duties, education and a combination of medical conditions — physical and mental — and injuries. Often these conditions and factors combine to prevent the individual from finding and keeping employment.

As your lawyer, I will help to assemble the appropriate documentation and expert opinions to strengthen your claim and demonstrate to the judge that you are in need of and deserve benefits. I am highly knowledgeable of the process and what the court is looking for. I will help you build the most solid case possible.

Children and SSD Benefits

There are often additional conditions that can complicate the situation, particularly in cases of children. This includes learning disabilities, autism and ADHD, as well as issues that will develop through adulthood. I am equipped to handle children's benefits and understand the intricacies and differences that will make the difference in the case.
