My client brought me flowers today.  I’m not sure she realized how much they mean to me.

I have represented this client for over five years now.

She was denied twice by a judge and denied by the Appeals Council once.  She, somewhat begrudgingly, allowed me to appeal her case to the U.S. District Court of Eastern Tennessee.

The U.S. District Court believed, as I did, that the judge had not done things correctly at the two hearings she had in front of him.

She recently had her third hearing, where her claim was finally approved.

I should be giving her flowers for sticking with me through all of this.

Wins like this one, for clients like this one, make it all worthwhile.
