Focused on Maximizing the Recovery for My Clients
For almost the entirety of my legal career, I have worked on workers compensation cases right here at Farah and Farah in Jacksonville. Over the years, my responsibilities have also included overseeing the social security department as well. My work is now primarily focused on workers’ compensation cases, but I do also still help with social security whenever my experience can be helpful.
Jacksonville is the hub for Farah and Farah’s workers’ compensation department so my team and I handle cases from across Florida. Seeing cases all the way from Tallahassee to Daytona, and everywhere in between the two, the Jacksonville District can be a busy court system to navigate. Even with such a large area, the technology we have at our disposal makes keeping up with every detail of our client’s case a lot easier.
Being a Social Security Attorney Takes Grit
Social security cases are a lot different than auto accidents. My clients are often in some of the worst economic situations imaginable. They may have gone years without assistance. Sleeping in cars, living in homeless shelters, and feeling utterly without hope is, for many, a real, daily struggle.
The laws around these types of cases can be complicated, and I utilize my many years of experience leading Farah and Farah’s workers’ compensation team to put together a winning legal strategy. Often, it’s simply being able to articulate the facts of my client’s case directly to the deciding judge to get them the social security benefits they are entitled to.
Having the Tools & Resources to Take on Tough Workers Compensation Cases
I’ve been at Farah and Farah for almost three decades now. It’s hard for me to believe it has been that long. Our cases always have a new dynamic to them, so every day is different. My personal experience with Farah and Farah for so many years is that Eddie and Chuck Farah are incredibly loyal to the entire organization. They lead from the front and they back each and every one of us 100%.
The level of support I receive from the very top of our organization is what gives me supreme confidence in how I handle my client’s cases. The diversity of resources we have at our disposal is truly incredible, but in all my years here, the atmosphere has never changed from that of a close-knit, family law firm.
Only Working 9 to 5 Isn’t In My DNA
I’m an early riser. Getting up early and being able to tackle so many different tasks before the hustle of the day begins really helps me accomplish the most I can for each and every case. Workers compensation and social security cases can be years in the making so I do everything I can do to make each step of the process as efficient as possible.
My days are filled with depositions and mediations, leading a team of highly-skilled professionals, and generally spending a lot of time on the phone. Whether it’s checking up on a client or contacting an adjuster to resolve a point of contention, managing many moving parts at once is a skill I’ve mastered over the years.
Jacksonville is My Home But I Handle Cases Across Florida
I know it sounds cliche, but I love helping people. In law school, I assisted in the family law court down in Miami. This is where children have been displaced by parents who have drug addictions or other unhealthy living situations that warrants the child’s removal. Helping these kids through some of the hardest situations you can imagine really impacted my drive to never give up in fighting for those that can’t fight for themselves. With workers compensation and social security cases, I’m doing just that for people across Florida.
Living in Jacksonville, it’s impossible not to be a foodie with so many awesome places to go out to. At least once or twice a week, I love finding those hidden hole-in-a-wall places to eat at around town. But to be honest, I’m just as comfortable having friends and family over in my backyard, just sitting out on the patio and enjoying one another’s company. Whenever I get a few extra minutes, you’ll probably find me daytripping to nearby gems like Fernandina and St. Augustine.
