A former analytical chemist, associate Bradley Clark made a sweeping career move to work with people rather than beakers. The conversion was one sound solution. After learning Social Security law at Whitley Law Firm, Brad, who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2012, decided that disability was his niche. “This profoundly changed the way I represent my clients.
I now have first-hand knowledge of impairments and symptoms that many of my clients deal with on a daily basis,” he says. “Disability law allows me to directly interact with clients in their time of need.” Not only is Brad a truly accessible attorney, he summons his analyst side when dealing with the legal complexity of Social Security.
A successful case in this type of law must be supported by medical evidence. “One of the first things Social Security looks at when making a determination of disability is whether the claimant has at least one medically determinable impairment.” To prepare his most difficult cases, Brad meticulously studies medical records page by page.
“We also aggressively pursue opinions from our clients’ treating physicians. Difficult cases require developing legal theories early into the cases,” he explains. But while he confidently represents clients before the Social Security Administration, Brad is also an advocate bedside. “If a client is unable to afford medical treatment, we help them find a no-cost or low-cost medical clinic. This advice not only helps a client build a successful case, it could mean the difference between life and death.” Learn more about Bradley’s background and his passion for Social Security law
