Trading VP, Bulge Bracket Investment Bank (original job in New Jersey)

Once a high functioning sales and trading VP at a bulge bracket investment bank, I began to really struggle emotionally esp. after the ongoing stresses of some devastating family health issues became unbearable. I kept working until my memory and cognitive functions completely gave out, and I mercifully was asked to leave. Rudderless and with no idea what the next day might bring, a psychiatrist soon urged me to call a disability firm.

Thank heavens an online search led to Evan Schwartz and his team. They helped me understand and begin to acknowledge how far I had fallen, and later the disability claims began paying without contention. Since then, a carrier did challenge my status and withheld payment in part because investigators saw me helping move a washing machine around in my garage. Schwartz Law dealt with this silliness well and got payments reinstated quickly. I still struggle and resist the notion of being disabled which I think is a good thing (see?), but I am forever grateful to have Schwartz Law on my side giving me clear, fair, honest advice.

Thank You Evan Schwartz, thank you Scott Harrigan, thank you Ginny Wielgus, thank you to the whole Schwartz Law team not so much for helping me but more for helping me provide and care for my family. I might not be here today without having met you all.
