Handling Social Security Disability Claims for Our Vermont Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Clients
In my interview at BFS back in 2004, it was clear to me that the firm had one top priority – their clients. That emphasis has never changed and is the consistent theme at our meetings and conversations.
I work with Attorney Kelly Massicotte to assist clients who are scheduled for hearings in their Social Security disability claims. I also work on special projects for Attorney Massicotte and Attorney Heidi Groff in their workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.
Before joining BFS, I had no experience in law, but I did have a lot of experience with people. I started working at the age of eight in my father’s general store, and have held a variety of positions since, most of which involved working with people with disabilities. Later, I was a guidance counselor at a high school and a counselor at a hospital. I decided I needed a change and moved from Ohio to Vermont in 2004. This was not a huge move for me as I am originally from the Keene, New Hampshire area, with many relatives in Vermont. I felt I was home again.
The type of work I perform at BFS is quite different from my former occupations, but my focus on taking care of clients has never changed. I am grateful to work at a firm where attorneys and staff all put the clients first.
In my free time, you’ll find me hiking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, spending time with family and friends, and gardening.
"At BFS, I work with great people and all of us care so much about our clients."
"Thank you so much Heidi, for being there for me. I had no idea what I had missed being on workers’ comp and you helped me get what was owed to me. Thank you again for everything."
