Before becoming a lawyer, however, Keith worked as a mental health therapist in San Diego. After years in the field, he began to be called to testify at Social Security Disability hearings.
Until that point, he hadn’t known there were specific attorneys who handled these types of cases and fought to ensure their clients had access to the benefits they deserve.
As the brother of someone with severe disabilities, and after years in the mental health field, Keith knew the bureaucratic and legal challenges faced by people struggling to be heard.
He knew he could make a difference as their legal representative, so he applied to law school.
