A Michigan Disability Lawyer with the Right Values for Your Case

This may be one of the most vulnerable times you’ve ever experienced—your health is weaker, your income has stopped, your household budget is breaking down. You wonder how you’re going to make it.

In a time like this you need—and deserve—caring, respectful support. Disability attorney Shelby Roberts knows.

Her father was an iron worker. He got hurt at work when Shelby was a 1-year-old. He had to leave work.

Her parents were raising four children at the time. Her mom had always stayed home to care for the kids, so when her dad was injured, the whole family’s income stopped.

Shelby heard from her family how stressful it was to deal with the Social Security Disability system. She also saw firsthand how they relied on these benefits. Benefits, by the way, that you earned by working and paying into Social Security.

“I became a lawyer to put myself in a position to help as many people as I could,” she said. “Helping people who are struggling physically, mentally and often financially motivates me to work as hard as I can.”

Her role includes evaluating cases when people first call the law firm, helping people navigate the disability benefits process, preparing documents in advance of disability hearings with administrative law judges, and representing people in their hearings.

The government process to get benefits can feel indifferent to your needs. Shelby makes sure you get the individual, personal attention that you should.
