Florida Super Lawyers

June 29, 2016

The 2016 Florida Super Lawyers list was published this month and I am again honored and flattered to be included in a group of people held in such high esteem.   I hope that I am worthy of this accolade.  Every day I try my best on behalf of my clients and I am happy that others are pleased with my work.  Congratulations to all of the Super Lawyers, including my own husband, Robert Miller, who toils away every day but still manages to make it home for dinner more than 9 times out of 10!

According to SSA, although men are more likely  than women to be insured for Title II benefits, the gender gap is shrinking!  The proportion of men who are insured has declined slightly since 1970, with 89% fully insured and 78% insured for disability in 2014.  By contrast, the proportion of women who are insured has increased dramatically — from 63% to 85% fully insured and from 41% to 73% insured for disability.

Having worked and paid taxes since I was 15 years old, I am proud to be insured for disability and retirement and one day, I plan to collect.

I am proud to announce I have been voted by my peers as one of Florida’s Legal Elite.  All members of the Florida Bar Association were invited to provide the names of the attorneys they hold in the highest regard — lawyers they have worked with or would recommend to others.  I am pleased to be included.

As always it was great seeing old friends and colleagues in Miami last week.  I connected with many stellar attorneys who helped me solve some tricky issues that are currently going in with some of my cases.  While the break from work was nice, it actually recharged my batteries and I am back in full force this week full of new thoughts and ideas to implement on my cases.

I’m so happy to be in South Florida, where I grew up, speaking with my good friend and colleague from Jacksonville, Erik W. Berger, to attorneys at the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.  I am honored to have been invited to speak on two topics – improving hearing skills and improving profitability of cases.  Erik and I are lucky to be among the first speakers of the three-day conference.

After we are done, we can relax and enjoy the rest of the week and hopefully, some beautiful beaches while we, as we always do when we talk, circle back to how we can best help our clients.  It really doesn’t matter whether we have a drink in our hands, are sitting over lunch or are chatting in the elevator at the hearing office, I can always count on Erik to share some wisdom with me.  I hope the converse is true for the advice I give Erik.
