AREAS OF PRACTICE
Social Security Disability
Are you shocked that the Social Security Administration denied your application for disability benefits? Are you confused about how to even begin an application for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration? Are you frustrated about the mountains of paperwork and the overwhelming fear that any little mistake you make in your appeal can get you denied again?
If this sounds like you, please continue reading because this may be the most important and encouraging message you will ever read. In the United States, it is not uncommon for legitimately disabled applicants to get denied on their first application. In fact, more than 80% of the time, you will get DENIED. And you should not think that your chances are going to be much better on your second attempt because about 80% of applications will be denied on their second attempt.
But just because the Social Security Administration denies you the first, or even a second time, does not mean that you can't appeal your denial and be awarded disability benefits. Because our firm has a high rate of success, we can reliably take on clients knowing we have a good chance of winning your appeal and getting you the monthly disability payments you so desperately need and deserve. That is why we can guarantee all social security clients we work with that we only get paid attorney fees if you win your case. In other words, if we fight for you and you don't win, you DO NOT have to pay any attorney fees! If you do win, our attorney fees are only a percentage of any backpay (past-due benefits) that are awarded to you. We do not take money from any of your future monthly payments.

Wills, Estates & Probate
While nobody wants to think about death or disability, establishing a comprehensive estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your family. Proper estate planning not only puts you in greater control of your property and finances during you lifetime, but can also spare your loved ones significant expense, frustration, and delay in the event that you pass away or become disabled.
Our comprehensive approach to estate planning includes protecting real and personal property, designating health care and financial decision-makers, living wills, ensuring access to medical information and records, identifying preferred caretakers for minor children, as well as end-of-life, burial and other considerations. Once your estate plan is in place, you will have peace of mind knowing that you have provided for yourself and those you love in case the worst happens.
When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often goes through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration where the assets of the deceased are managed and distributed. The length of time needed to complete the probate of an estate depends on the size and complexity of the estate and the local rules and schedule of the probate court.
Limited Scope Representation
Limited scope representation is a way for individuals and businesses to obtain the help of an attorney without paying the full cost of representation. Limited scope representation makes hiring a lawyer more affordable for low and moderate income individuals and allows attorneys to provide legal assistance to those who would otherwise be unable to afford an attorney. Maryland court rules allow attorneys to enter limited appearances in court.
Some examples of limited scope representation are:
You representing yourself through the entire case, but consulting with an attorney who gives you advice on the law, procedures and strategy.
You having an attorney help you prepare the paperwork and you attending the hearing yourself.
You preparing the paperwork and hiring the attorney to appear in court for you.
You hiring the attorney to appear with you at a settlement conference or mediation, but not at any court hearing.
