Pat has always been one to fight for the little guy and takes pride in helping people in need. Because of that, Pat’s legal career has focused exclusively on helping injured and disabled people recover the benefits they are entitled to from workers compensation, short-term disability, long-term disability, and Social Security disability.
During his career Pat has developed a deep understanding of how difficult it can be for anyone to try to navigate the disability or workers compensation process when they are suffering from a disability that prevents them from working or have been injured on the job. His desire to help people struggling with this process and his deep knowledge of how the process works has led to Pat helping his client obtain millions of dollars in benefits denied by insurers that include Aetna, Cigna, New York Life, MetLife, Lincoln Financial Group, The Hartford, Guardian, Unum, Reliance Standard, Travelers, Acuity, and many others.
