What I like best about my job: having the ability to help those who truly are in need. I enjoy arguing with insurance carriers (whether it be at the administrative level or in court) to help prove that their adverse decision was wrong.
Why I became a lawyer: I wanted to be able to help those in need. From the time I was young, it always gave me great satisfaction to help others. Prior to law school, I worked for a social security disability firm, and quickly realized that disability insurance law was the way to go. What better way to help people, then to fight for the benefits to which they are rightfully entitled.
