Brian, I want to thank you and Ms. Willetts for all of your help during the appeal. Your expertise and approachable personality was truly welcomed, and having you present for the SSA hearing reduced my anxieties about the process. I will gladly refer others to you if they are needing assistance with disability or injury. If I were to encounter trouble with the SSA in the future, you will be my first contact. Your professionalism is a step above. Will Pitman
