I am the disability hearing specialist at Bahrie Law and practice primarily in the areas of Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, and VA disability claims. Specifically, I focus my practice on ensuring those who need and deserve benefits receive them. I regularly represent men and women, civilians and veterans, who have been denied their right to benefits and helps disabled individuals navigate these complex legal systems. My experience litigating - quite literally thousands - of cases across the country before both the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veteran Affairs has granted me considerable knowledge of federal rules and regulations that surround application and appeal processes.

I reside in Okemos with my husband, Patrick, our two children, our cat, Ophelia, and our dog, Ozma. In my very limited free time I enjoy woodworking, playing card and board games with family and neighbors, gardening in the backyard, and visiting parks and campgrounds all over the great State of Michigan.
