Hi. My name is Cindy Olson. I am one of the paralegals in our office. A paralegal can help clients to develop their cases to obtain benefits. Usually, when you call our office, you will talk with a paralegal. I am also a non-attorney representative. That means I am also allowed by Social Security to represent clients in court, because I have passed the testing to show that I know what I am doing.
I am excited that we are starting to do blogs, to help people understand more about Social Security benefits, and particularly disability benefits. I will be sharing some of the things that I am experiencing with you on a monthly basis.
Helping people qualify for the benefits that they need and deserve is very enjoyable for me. My background is in mental health, so I particularly enjoy working with people who suffer from mental illness. Since most people with disabilities at least have some sort of depression, this includes nearly all of our clients. I look forward to working with you, too.
