Summary

I am a partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. I feel privileged to be able to work with a group of lawyers who work at the very highest level of legal care. It is a rare place where people are challenged intellectually, challenged to do their best, and supported by their colleagues every step of the way. This is a very bright group of people, very congenial and collegial. I think that, by working as a team, we are able to push each other to higher levels of success for our clients, our firm, and ourselves. Here is what I want all my clients to know: When I am listening to you, I am really listening, and I am trying to put myself in your shoes. And when I am giving you advice, my goal is to give you the same advice I would give to a member of my own family. I feel personally connected to my clients, and that's the mindset I'm in when I'm giving advice- personal and connected. What this means is that I won't ever hide the truth from you- the information I give may not be what you want to hear, but it is the truth. And when I offer my advice, I'm telling you the same information I would tell my own father, mother, sister, or brother if they needed legal advice. I will always put my client's best interests at the forefront of everything I do. The process of hiring a lawyer is very personal- it's not like going to Wal-Mart and shopping for the best deal on detergent. The Tide detergent you buy in Wal-Mart is the same Tide you buy in Kroger, or Harris Teeter, or any other store. Legal services, on the other hand, are widely different. Firms are dramatically different in the quality and level of client care the firm gives, the level of personalized service, and the amount of time that a lawyer and law firm and staff are willing to spend with a client. Clients should have their eyes open and try to analyze who they think will fit philosophically with their needs best-who is going to listen to them, take the time they need to understand the intricacies of the case, take

Veterans Benefits

Applying for and getting approved for veterans disability benefits can be a long and difficult process. Veteran's benefits are paid to a veteran because of injuries or diseases that are "service connected," which means they happened while on active duty, or were made worse by military service. A service-connected disability can include any problem incurred while you were in service, even if you didn't receive treatment while in there. This applies to injuries that happened during combat, or even while on leave. This video discusses the basic issues involved in applying for and winning veterans disability benefits.

Social Security Disability: What NOT To Do

In this video, David Henson--managing partner of HensonFuerst Attorneys--discusses what NOT to do during the Social Security Disability application process. Applying for Social Security Disability is tough. At the time when you are feeling bad enough to be considered disabled, the agency seems to want to make the process as difficult as possible. If you want to make their job easier, I can help you with that. We help people through the long and exhausting process of attaining Social Security Disability benefits everyday. Of the many things we've learned along the way, one lesson is clear: The SSA looks for reasons to reject your claim. Here are the top 5 things you can do to help SS shut you out. 1. Don't get medical care for your conditions. 2. Do drugs or alcohol. 3.Break the law, or end up in jail. 4.Don't keep your lawyer up-to-date on your situation. 5. Miss deadlines or appointments. If you work hard all your life, and end up so injured or sick that you can no longer work, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. But just because you are eligible, that doesn't mean you are entitled. There is a world of reasons why your case may be not be approved...don't hand the courts a reason to deny your claim. This is David Henson, with HensonFuerst Attorneys. For more information about how we can help you fight for your SSD benefits, visit our website at LAWMED.com/SocialSecurityDisability/. Or, call us at 1-800-4-LAWMED. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607)

Medicare Set Asides

If you have a settlement from a workers' compensation or personal injury lawsuit, and if you have Medicare (or expect to be eligible within 18 months), you should be aware of a new legal concept called "Medicare Set-Asides." This requires people to set aside a certain amount of money from their settlement funds, to be used for the purpose of paying for future medical treatment. Medicare Set-Asides are complex, and if calculated improperly, can be costly. The best way to navigate these complicated legal waters is to have an experienced lawyer at your side. In this video, David Henson, managing partner of HensonFuerst Attorneys, discusses the details of Medicare Set-Asides, and why you need to be mindful of them.
