A client’s perspective on Social Security and long-term disability

TCNF Client Patrice

When Patrice came to Thomas Coon Newton & Frost, she had been wrongly denied both Social Security Disability Insurance benefits and insurance converge through her private long-term disability insurer.  Scott represented her in both claims, winning the Social Security claim in a hearing before a judge and negotiating a settlement agreement with the private insurer.


Patrice graciously agreed to record a conversation with Scott in which she talks about what it is like to stop working because of illness, to be wrongly denied disability coverage, and to fight to get the benefits she was owed.
