All Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, and Personal Injury consultations are free.


The Workers’ Compensation system is designed to provide assistance to injured employees who are hurt on the job. Benefits include monetary payments for time lost from work while you are recovering from an injury, payments for replacing lost income if you can’t do your old job, and coverage of your medical and prescription costs. While simple in it’s goals, the system can be very complicated, confusing, and frustrating. The following is provided to answer many common questions about your workers’ compensation case. It is not a substitute for specific legal advice and cannot cover every issue facing you. Feel free to call us if you need any more information.


In order to get Social Security Disability you must be unable to do your normal work, or other work you might be able to do, for one year or more. If your disability is likely to last for at least a year, you may apply for Social Security Disability. Social Security Disability is available for disabilities from all causes, including injuries, and illnesses. Our attorney’s can assist you in filing a claim and moving it through the system.


We handle all legal aspects of real estate transactions by preparing and reviewing all legal documents, negotiate the terms and conditions of real estate transactions and facilitate the transfer of titles.
