Anne is an experienced attorney who has devoted most of her practice to helping people get the Social Security disability benefits they deserve (both SSDI and SSI). Along with medical disability cases, Anne has also focused on product liability litigation, more specifically Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) cases.
Anne has spent over 10 years representing individuals who have complex medical and legal problems. Her typical client has either been wrongfully denied Social Security benefits or needlessly suffered from improperly designed medical products. Anne has extensive litigation experience, including dozens of jury trials and hundreds of bench trials. She has won Social Security benefits for hundreds of clients at all stages of the benefits process, from initial applications to contested disability hearings to lawsuits in federal court.
Unlike many attorneys, Anne helps disabled people file their applications for disability benefits and will continue to represent them through numerous appeals. She has extensive experience in federal court litigation. Anne represents Social Security clients with all types of disabilities, including depression, anxiety, arthritis, chronic pain, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many others. Anne also represents product liability clients—women who have suffered pain, scarring, infection, and other serious physical and emotional injuries due to faulty TVM products.
Anne is a highly respected attorney who has experience dealing with complicated medical and legal issues. She frequently trains lawyers and judges on how to practice Social Security Disability law. She has received numerous awards for her community service work, including the Harry S. Truman Public Service Scholarship award and a New York University School of Law Community Service award. Anne was also a Root-Tilden-Snow Public Service Scholar at NYU School of Law.
