More About Me

A Collaborative Approach to Law

Personalized Representation

My top priority throughout our time together is to ensure that you are given a customized legal strategy. The more we can collaborate and communicate, the better I will get to know your situation. Once I understand your story forwards and backward, I can provide you with an individualized legal strategy so you are given the most applicable and relevant resources. Every family, every story, and every individual is extremely different — so you expect the kind of personalized and quality service that you deserve.

Easily Accessible

With Social Security law, attorneys are not required to be licensed for every state in which they practice. As a result, I am available to anyone who needs my services, whether you live in Utica or surrounding areas of Michigan. As your possible hearing for Social Security approaches, it is important that we are on the same page so that we both are fully prepared. I will take the time to meet with you as the date nears to make sure no stone has gone unturned and give you the most honest and reflective legal counsel.

The Difference Between SSI and SSD

Social Security disability (SSD) and supplemental security income (SSI) both provide people with important sources of income in the event they become unable to work and provide. Many people rely on these programs in Utica, Mount Clemens, and surrounding areas of Michigan so they can afford to put a roof over their heads and provide for their families. The primary difference relates to the reason why they are seeking financial help.

SSD, also known as Social Security disability insurance, is funded through an accumulation of taxes that have been taken out of your paycheck throughout the years. Recipients must be between 18 and 65, have become disabled and unable to work, and have worked a certain number of years through earning "work credits." After two years of SSD, you will become eligible for Medicare.

On the other hand, those applying for SSI are not necessarily eligible because of work history, rather they're applying out of sheer necessity. Requirements for applying for SSI include having less than $2,000 in assets as an individual or $3,000 as a couple and you must have a very limited income. People who qualify for SSI typically qualify for Medicaid and food stamps as well.

With more than two decades of experience practicing Social Security disability law, I've given numerous clients the opportunity to receive benefits that can provide for individuals and families.
