Unlike many Social Security Disability lawyers, Ruth Kimball works with each client personally. She helps each client through the process, from initial appeal through the hearing. She also works with doctors and medical providers to develop the case for the Administrative Law Judge.
Ruth Kimball also possesses extensive knowledge in the medical field, a credential that is essential to Social Security Disability representation. Prior to practicing law, she managed a medical laboratory and worked in hospitals for 10 years as a Medical Technologist certified by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
