Ruth Harvey & her staff were very helpful & worked hard on getting my disability application approved. They were friendly, professional, responsive to my emails. I would recommend them to anyone needing assistance with getting approved for Social Security Disability.

Chris Carpenter did a wonderful job helping me with a knee injury sustained during work. When surgery came into question the employer/worker's comp dropped all support. Chris was able to help with the settlement. I would highly recommend to anyone!
