"Kathryn was the only attorney we found that would handle the case from the very beginning. She filed the initial application for SSA so SSA could have everything they needed from the get go. She walks you through what needs to be done and what is happening. She is knowledgeable and responds to your calls and emails. Yes, you actually get to talk to the attorney! I would recommend her to everyone needing a disability attorney."- Andrea
"Kathryn was recommended to me by a friend of the family that happens to be a judge. What a fantastic recommendation! Kathryn's representation resulted in my four long years battle for disability ending with a favorable decision. She always worked on my behalf, kept me informed and answered any of my concerns. I wish that I had hired her from the beginning of the application process which probably would have saved me years with the SSA not mention a lot of frustration. I can't in words, do justice as to how much help she has been. I highly recommend her services."- William
"I had questions, she had answers. I was anxious, she calmed me down. She did everything! Paperwork, running down doctors, and, information. She handled it all, and, she answered her phone! She had the case on all points, she didn't miss a trick! She has a great personality, but, she doesn't mess around! She knows her stuff and she won my case. I recommend her HIGHLY!”- Verna
