Thank you to attorney Erika Riggs and the remarkable staff at Disability Attorneys of Michigan. After several conversations on the telephone with Erika and staff, a few emails and submitting any necessary documents, which all was very minimal…Erika made what had been a more than 10-year process, major headaches, losing track of what was needed next…a very simple one-stop process. Erika handled everything in this case! At times I worried thinking I had to do more, remembering what I had gone through all the years prior to work with Disability Attorneys of MI, but that was never an issue. They handled it all. Walk you through everything, answer all your questions, even before you ask them. I highly recommend this organization, and thank you Erika for all your help on behalf of myself and my family.
