Welcome to Legal Fact and Fiction Podcast

Nothing surprises me anymore. I practice in the areas of Social Security Disability law and civil litigation. As a result, I see people suffer, err, and persevere. They encounter arbitrary laws, long waits, and unfair situations. This podcast will tell their stories because no one else is. In order to provide some levity, on occasion I will feature absurd laws and discuss them. Because I enjoy legal fiction on some episodes I will discuss legal fiction I find interesting. This may be a book, a story, a TV show, a movie, or something I've written. I hope you enjoy.
