In November 2015, after one year of cancer treatment (chemotherapy and three surgeries) I was faced with the challenge of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance. I knew I was not up to managing the complex application process. We found Kevin LaPorte on line, with high recommendations. From our first meeting, Kevin and Sylvia Marichalar, (the firm's legal assistant) were kind, supportive and totally professional. They remained so throughout the process, guiding us through the maze of paperwork and translating the "legalese." I especially appreciated Kevin's support in preparing me for my court date in front of a judge. Kevin accompanied me to the hearing, calmed my jitters. I have received a favorable judgment and believe it is fully due to the help and support from Kevin and Sylvia. I recommended a good friend to their office as well. Thank you Kevin and Sylvia!
