Put Your Burdens
In My Hands

If you are no longer able to perform your job because of a disability, it is your right to pursue Social Security disability insurance benefits to replace your income. Your ability to keep up with your expenses may depend on receiving benefits and an experienced Social Security attorney and advocate can give you an upper hand in this fight.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal benefit, a type of income, to help people who are blind, of advanced age, or are disabled and have low or no income. SSI was created to help people pay for food, clothing, and shelter. An experienced Social Security attorney can help determine if you are eligible to apply for this federal income benefit.

Sometimes it is hard to talk about planning for what happens after your death and even more challenging to begin thinking about the administration of assets and the estate. A compassionate estate planning attorney can help you navigate the probate process and help you create a comprehensive estate plan.

The legal words used in estate planning can be intimidating. It is essential to have a knowledgeable and experienced attorney write the legal documents in your estate plan like your will, a trust, power of attorney, and advanced healthcare directive. Schedule a consultation today to safeguard your assets and loved ones. I am proud to serve the communities of Cookeville, Upper Cumberland, Sparta, Gainesboro, Livingston, and Crossville, Tennessee.
