Farris Law Opens New Areas of Practice
In an effort to better serve our clients, we have decided to increase the scope of our legal services to include, social security/disability and mediation and other alternative dispute resolution. The following is a brief summary of these services:
Michelle Allott has served as a mediator in a wide array of civil matters over the years. She continues to offer mediation services to those attorneys and parties interested in attempting to resolve a matter short of trial. As a trial attorney of 20 years, Michelle is able to forge consensus in even the most difficult matters. Having practiced for years as an insurance defense attorney and now as a personal injury attorney representing those who have been injured, she is able to offer a balanced perspective that can help to draw parties together, thereby minimizing the inevitable risk of trial.
If you have an interest in pursuing mediation or other alternative dispute resolution, feel free to call. Michelle offers ADR services throughout the state of Maine, charging only minimum fees for travel. In some cases, travel expenses may even be waived, depending on the location and duration of the mediation.
We have recently revitalized our social security practice in response to the needs of our clients. Rather than referring our client elsewhere, Farris Law has made the commitment to represent our clients who are unable to work due to disability. The dire effects of disability can happen to anyone of us in an instant and as such, we feel strongly that our clients deserve the best possible representation in trying to prove their disability to the Social Security Administration.
Success in proving disability requires a familiarity with the Social Security Administration statutes and regulations. We are committed to providing a knowledgeable approach to the law and the presentation of the facts, to demonstrate the required elements of a disability finding.
We are happy to provide a free consultation to discuss your case. If we agree to represent you, we will generally do so on a contingency fee basis, so that clients without sufficient means need not worry about the cost of legal expense, which is simply deducted from denied back benefits once a disability finding is made.
