A Disability Lawyer Who Understands What You’re Going Through
Losing your ability to work—because a medical crisis has robbed you of the ability to function like you used to—makes this possibly the hardest time in your life.
With income assistance and access to health care, Social Security Disability benefits can get you back on steady ground.
But it can be a difficult journey to get there. You’ll want to work with a Social Security Disability lawyer who has the right values.
This is a highly personal situation. It isn’t like any other legal case.
You don’t want just any lawyer.
Suzette Murphy grew up in LaPlace with a brother who has developmental disabilities. She knows what it’s like for a family to take care of someone with special needs—dealing with medical care, health insurance, education programs and more.
Then when she was a college student, her father had a stroke.
He had to leave his longtime work in the oil industry and file for disability benefits.
She witnessed her family losing income—and nearly losing everything. Like most families, they didn’t have much financial cushion without work income.
Suzette met her father’s disability lawyer and followed her father’s disability claim as he appealed for disability benefits all the way to a judge.
This is how she decided to pursue a career in disability law. She wanted to help other families like hers.
Now she’s been helping people win Social Security Disability benefits for almost 20 years.
