Kim Daniels, Paralegal
Social Security Department
Paralegal to attorney Kelly Massicotte.
Since 2004, I’ve worked at BFS as a paralegal specializing in social security disability law, with a focus on working with clients and their claims once a hearing has been scheduled. I assist the attorney in preparing cases for hearing through a detailed review and analysis of the claim, resolving problem issues, and outlining the best possible case for disability to the judge. BFS uses a team approach to working social security claims, which ensures attentiveness, differing perspectives, and a fresh outlook to each claim at all stages of the process. I feel fortunate to work with other team members who show dedication to our clients as evidenced by their compassionate attitudes and the quality and thoroughness of their work.
Previously I worked as a counselor in a hospital setting, counseling patients in the rehabilitation, skilled nursing, cardiac, emergency, and hospice units. In my college days, I also worked as a member of staff for organizations that provided recreational activities to children and adults with mental health and/or physical impairments. I chose to change career directions to the legal field in 2004 and discovered that BFS, a law firm devoted to helping the injured and disabled, was a great fit for incorporating my past experience into legal work.
I am a native of southern New Hampshire and moved to Vermont in 2004. I love spending time with my three adult children and my friends and also enjoy outdoor sports and activities.
