Practice Areas

While I am primarily engaged in representing people with disabilities with regard to enforcement of civil rights and equal access to housing, transportation, programs, services and facilities, I also assist such individuals with self-advocacy.  I present self-advocacy workshops frequently around the country.  In addition, I handle many other legal matters as highlighted below.
Social Security

 

If you can no longer work, don't wait until you've been denied disability benefits to contact me.  I can now assist you with your initial filing and have met with success in doing so in several cases by ensuring the initial application is complete and the social security administration has been provided with all relevant medical records.  Of course, if you've been denied, I am happy to represent you before administrative law judges, the appeals council or in U.S. District Court.

 

Personal Injury

​If you've been involved in a car accident, injured on the job, injured as a result of defective products, sufferd a vaccine injury, or slipped and fallen due to a dangerous condition of which you were unaware, I may be able to assist you and help ensure you are fully and adequately compensated as a result.

 

Work Injuries

 

I handle Alabama workers' compensation matters.  If you have been injured at work, make sure you give prompt notice to your employer.  I can help ensure you are provided with the medical treatment to which you are entitled, obtain second opinions if you become dissatisfied with your authorized treating physician, and use my best efforts to ensure you are compensated appropriately.

 

Employment Discrimination

 

If you have suffered adverse work actions on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, disability, age or religion, I may be able to assist.  Also, if you have not been afforded Family Medical Leave due to your own illness or serious health condition, or that of a close family member, you may have recourse under the law. 

Overtime & Wages

 

The Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to compensate non-expempt employees for all hours worked, at higher rates for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a given work week and, under no circumstances lower than the minimum wage.  If you feel you have been unfairly compensated at work, worked off the clock, not paid time and a half for overtime or paid less than minimum wage, contact me so I can determine if the Fair Labor Standards Act has been violated.

 

Immigration

​If you have questions about immigration and how it can affect you and your family, contact me. I can now assist you with an initial consultation on your case and preparation of family based immigration petitions. Don't wait until it is too late, give me a call today.

Required statement from the AL State Bar:  No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services provided by other lawyers.  Any recoveries and testimonials are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors.   Disclaimer
