Do You Need Someone to Listen?

    It’s easy to feel pushed aside when you have health problems that prevent you from working.

    Now you need help paying for food, housing and other essentials. Social Security Disability benefits provide crucial support, including monthly checks that give you a break financially and emotionally.

    Katie Taylor is a disability attorney who will take the time to listen to you and understand your needs when you’re facing medical struggles.

    Katie’s interest in helping people in need goes back to before she attended law school. She worked in social justice and grassroots organizing, striving to be an ally to disadvantaged people.

    As a disability lawyer, she makes herself directly available to her clients, explaining the disability applying and appealing process and answering questions.

    She also works with medical providers to gather the evidence you need for a successful disability claim. And she helps you get ready for your disability hearing when you’re appealing a denial of benefits.

    Personal attention from your lawyer is one of the top values that we hold at our law firm.

    Wells, Manning, Eitenmiller & Taylor has offices in Eugene-Springfield, Albany, Roseburg, Coos Bay and Medford.

    Our entire legal team stands ready to help Oregonians dealing with life-changing health problems move on to better times.

    “Katie Taylor took on a complicated Social Security Disability claim for our daughter. She worked diligently and competently to negotiate these complications and win our claim. She and her assistant, Saige, were always available by phone and took time to fully discuss their strategy with us. We highly recommend her service.”
