Wins Third Term on NOSSCR Social Security Disability Lawyer BoardWednesday, September 22, 2010
I am humbled to have been re-elected to a third term by my colleagues as their Second Circuit Representative on the NOSSCR Board of Directors. I thank them for their continued support and look forward to helping them promote their top-notch and ethical attorney representation in Social Security disability claims.
I flew into the "windy city" of Chicago this morning to attend the Fall 2010 NOSSCR Disability Claim Lawyer conference. This year I will be attending some great sessions on the functional restrictions caused by multiple sclerosis, cancer, diabetes, PTSD caused by sexual abuse, hypertension, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and other auto-immune disorders.
I have always believed that thorough preparation of a client’s case, including knowing the medicine of the claimant’s disability better than the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), is a key element of winning any disability claim.
In addition, I will be presenting the NOSSCR Eileen P. Sweeney Distinguished Service Award tomorrow to two giants in the field of Social Security Disability Law: Charles Hall and David Traver. This is NOSSCR’s highest honor, and both Charles and David are most deserving.
Last, but not least, my friend and colleague Lew Insler and I plan to take in a Cubs game tomorrow night at the classic Wrigley Field. It doesn’t get much better than that!
