We are highlighting another client success story! Like many federal employees, Mr. K never thought an injury or illness would end his career with the United States Postal Service. He was diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease in mid-2015. After no longer being able to tolerate the pain and fatigue, Mr. K decided to apply for Federal Disability Retirement. He felt overwhelmed by the application process and contacted the team at Harris Federal Law Firm. His success story inspires us all.

“After hiring Harris Federal Law Firm to represent me Meredith Hager was my assigned case manager. Meredith became my first point of contact for all my questions and concerns and always kept in contact with me throughout the entire process. She assured me that things would work out in my favor and she was RIGHT! June 28, 2016, OPM approved my medical disability. The compassion exhibited goes well beyond what can be said or written to give you a heartfelt thank you in making the process as smooth as possible. I recommend any federal employee in need of reputable representation to contact Harris Federal Law Firm. I did and am extremely grateful for the support and guidance I received.”

Applying for federal disability retirement often can be overwhelming and confusing. If you or someone you know can no longer do your job because of a medical condition, call Harris Federal at (877) 226-2723 or fill out an INQUIRY FORM for a free consultation. We are passionate about fighting for the rights of federal workers, and we strive to help in any way we can. You could be the next success story.
