Samuel Packard: When I was in high school, my mom got really sick. At first, it was just a limp, and then it progressed to where she needed a wheelchair. In the last year of her life, it got so bad that she couldn’t turn in bed by herself. She couldn’t breathe. I’m the tenth child of 13 kids, and it was hard. We had all of these medical bills and lots of mouths to feed, and she needed Social Security Disability benefits but was unable to get it. When I got older, I started thinking about what kind of career I wanted and I felt something needs to be done about this.
Some of the most amazing people I have ever met are so vulnerable. They need someone to speak for them — someone to help. I have dedicated my entire legal career to helping people like my mom obtain Social Security Disability benefits. It is the only area of law that I practice.
David Packard: Samuel was just born with a natural love for people and that drove him to become an expert in disability law. What Samuel is particularly good at is presenting to the court every opportunity for them to grant a favorable decision, and that is the reason why so many of his former clients refer their family members and their friends to Samuel Packard.
