This year, we had the opportunity to help a trial attorney analyze his options and determine the best pathway for him to follow related to his employment and disability. He asked that we post this for our readers:
“I am a service professional who recently retained Ms. Rafel’s firm after I suffered from a mental health episode that required hospitalization. Ms. Rafel was the first attorney I spoke with when I returned home. She was extremely comforting and reassuring.
When my wife and I met with her for an initial consultation we realized she was the right attorney to advocate on my behalf. she was firm and compassionate and took the time to answer all of our questions, even when she was on vacation. Because of Ms. Rafel’s efforts and those that work for her, I was able to collect the backpay that was owed to me by my former employer, and I am now on the path to complete mental health.
