So I am told that I have been with the Morgan and Weisbrod family for 11 years today. It feels like I just started this journey.. and at the same time like I’ve been at this for a lifetime. I never thought in a million years I would be working for a law firm. Law was never something I was interested in, but here I am years later and I don’t want to stop. I have always been a helpful person. I am the oldest of three and my sister who is a year younger was born with Cerebral Palsy. I grew up by my mother’s side helping take care of my sister from the moment I was able to walk until I went off to college. I saw firsthand the emotional struggles, the financial hardships, and the general heartache that dealing with this lifelong disability caused my sister and our family. Now, working at this law firm, I have been given the opportunity to help so many more people and their families. I may not be the one in the court room fighting for your benefits, but I am the one on the phone chasing down your records, setting up your examinations, arguing with the hearing office to do right by your case, and generally making sure your attorney has what they need to fight hard. I thank M&W law firm for giving me the opportunity to do so every day and I hope to be helping people for many more years to come.
