The Lemoine Law Firm handles only Social Security Disability (DIB) and SSI . Many other attorneys who handle these cases practice other types of law and, needless to say, very few have the experience of a former Social Security judge. Mr. Lemoine’s staff of eleven includes Barbara J. Mixon, who served as a staff attorney for the Social Security Administration for twenty years as well as Debbie Willis, a paralegal who has been with the firm for twelve years. Other members of Mr. Lemoine’s staff include Ashley Barbier, a recent graduate of Tulane Law School as well as Danielle Guillot, who served as a service representative for the Social Security Administration for three years. While Mr. Lemoine’s experienced staff will always be there to deal with your questions or concerns, it is important to note that Mr. Lemoine personally represents his clients at almost all Social Security hearings.
