Federal Tort Claims
If you have been injured on Federal property or as a result of the acts of a Federal employee, and are not an active military or Federal employee, you may have a claim for your injury. Practice under the Federal Tort Claims Act is a specialized field that is unfamiliar to many attorneys. Mark Rassas is one of the leading attorneys in this area in this type of law, previously serving as Vice Chairman of the Federal Tort Claims and Military Law Section of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. He will evaluate any serious injury claim.
Social Security / Disability Claims
More than half of all Social Security Disability claims are initially denied. Julia North actively handles appeals after initial denial. If you suffer from a serious health condition that prevents you from working at any gainful employment, you should make application for Social Security Disability. If your application is denied, Julia North will evaluate your claim to determine if it can be successfully appealed. Her fee is a percentage of any recovery.
