Today we hear from a Senior Attorney in the Consumer Practice Group, Carl Flaningam. Carl is thankful for LAF for a lot of reasons but he is especially thankful for the services we are able to offer our clients. He shared with us a story of how his work was able to significantly impact an elderly man who was having trouble getting the benefits he deserved:
“We represented an 87-year old who was having his Social Security check reduced because of a defaulted student loan. We got his treating physician to sign the Department of Education’s form that he was permanently and totally disabled; we then had to get the Department of Education to process the paperwork, which required numerous phone calls and the involvement of Congresswoman Schakowsky’s office. But eventually it happened, and it made a significant difference in his income. “
Thank you for everything that you do, Carl!
