Social Security Disability

The loss of income associated with a disabling injury or accident can be devastating to the economic life of an individual or family. Social Security disability income provides an important safety net for individuals who are unable to work due to disability.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Barbara Abrams received a medical degree (M.D.) from Boston University in 1986, completed a residency in Pediatrics, and practiced primary care clinical pediatrics for over 20 years. Following graduation from FSU Law School in 2005, she worked as a medical consultant for the Division of Disability Determinations for the Florida Department of Health where her primary duty involved the review of medical data submitted by claimants seeking social security disability benefits. Additionally, Barbara served as the physician on more than 100 guardianship incapacity examining committees.
