I have two paralegals that assist me and each one is a seasoned veteran in her respective area. We all share a legal assistant who helps all three of us manage our disabled clients.
Gloria manages our workers’ compensation and social security disability claims with compassion and a deep empathy for our clients. Many of our clients see Gloria for personal advice as they struggle with their disabilities and the frustrations that are common to battling insurance companies. Gloria is a bright light that shines upon all of us. She has been with Hoggatt Law Office since June 2003.
Melissa handles our auto accident and personal injury claims with extreme skill.
