Success Story – Louis T.

Oct 3, 2013

Postal service worker.

At Harris Federal Law Firm, we have the honor of representing dedicated public servants like Mr. Louis T., who has been a committed letter carrier for the United States Postal Service in Miami, Florida. Louis’ story is one of resilience, strength, and trust in our legal expertise.

Like many hardworking Americans, Louis was faced with an unexpected health challenge that threatened his career and quality of life. He was diagnosed with lumbar radiculitis, lumbar dicogenic disease, and post fusion syndrome with chronic radiculopathy. These conditions led to constant, debilitating pain that made it nearly impossible for him to carry out his responsibilities at the USPS. His physical suffering was further compounded by depression and anxiety stemming from his inability to work.

Additionally, recognizing the gravity of his situation and the need for professional representation, Louis turned to us at Harris Federal Law Firm for assistance with his Federal Disability Retirement claim. Our experienced team immediately went to work, utilizing our comprehensive understanding of federal disability law to guide Louis through the process.

The Journey of a Postal Service Worker

Our first step was to ensure that Louis’ application was complete, accurate, and thoroughly supported by the requisite medical evidence. We worked closely with Louis, his doctors, and medical professionals to compile all necessary documents and information. This collaborative approach ensured Louis’ claim accurately reflected his condition and its impact on his ability to work.

Louis’ application was submitted to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in October of 2012. The application process can often be lengthy and cumbersome, but our expertise and meticulous attention to detail paid off. We’re proud to report that Louis’ application was approved on the first attempt, a significant achievement that speaks to our firm’s commitment to excellence and results.

Furthermore, what’s even more impressive is the timeline: we successfully secured approval for Louis’ disability retirement claim in just nine months. This expedited resolution allowed Louis to focus on his health and recovery, rather than being burdened by financial uncertainty.

Stories like Louis’ are a testament to the power of professional, experienced legal representation. They underscore why we at Harris Federal Law Firm are dedicated to serving those who serve our nation.
