I founded Bay Area Disability in 2014 with one overriding objective: to help as many deserving people with disabilities as possible win their claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits - and do it with compassion, grace, and empathy. Over my nearly twelve years of SSDI-focused practice and hard-fought experience, my mission has evolved and crystallized: I aim to be the foremost Social Security Disability attorney in the country.


I am a disability attorney. It's not just what I do, but it's my passion and a big part of who I am. I represent people with disabilities - all different types of disabilities, all walks of life - throughout the country. If, after learning about your case, I am confident can help you, it would be an honor and a privilege to be your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) lawyer. I'm here to help and look forward to hearing from you.
