Founding partners Catherine Coats and Robert Todd have practiced since 1992 and 1991, respectively. Both have served as president of the Dallas Association of Social Security Claimants Attorneys and are active in the National Association of Social Security Claimants Representatives (NOSSCR).
With 60 years of combined experience in this area of the law, our lawyers have handled thousands of Social Security Disability cases on behalf of clients across Texas. We have extensive experience with mental illness claims and a record of success in all claims, including dire need cases and hard-to-prove claims such as pain disorders and back injuries. Although any citizen can file a claim, we firmly believe that an attorney who is immersed in SSDI and SSI law enables people who might otherwise be rejected to eventually win benefits.
