I’m back from San Antonio, Texas where I attended a national conference hosted by the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives, the major advocacy groups for attorneys who help people with Social Security matters. I was honored to speak and presented an introductory session for new practitioners with two other attorneys (Gil Laden from Alabama and Paul Eaglin from Alaska). I also attended over 20 hours of classes, where I was able to learn from other attorneys. I am back with lots of new ideas about how to successfully demonstrate to the Social Security Administration that my clients are disabled and would work if they could. At the conference, I was also elected to the Board of Directors for NOSSCR, where I will represent members from the Eleventh Circuit (Florida, Georgia and Alabama). Gil Laden was also elected, so I expect that he and I will enjoy working with each other. As a board member, I hope to advocate to politicians about the Social Security Disability process.

Are you disabled and unable to work? Have you filed for Social Security Disability and been turned down? The important thing is that you retain an experienced attorney to assist you in your claim. An attorney that can help you understand the Social Security system and can navigate you through the maze of benefits.

Tracy Tyson Miller was named by Florida Trend Magazine as a member of the “Legal Elite” in 2007. The fourth annual edition of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite names the top 868 lawyers who have earned the trust and confidence of those who know their work the best. The prestigious roster is selected from 59,481 Florida Bar members who practice in the state. To determine who would be awarded this honor, attorneys were asked to name lawyers whom they hold in the highest regard–lawyers with whom they have worked or would recommend to others.
