Without a doubt, 2022 was a standout year for Disability Law Group. We were able to achieve record highs and surpass our goals, thanks to the support of our community, the trust of our clients, and the dedication of our team. Our mission has always been improving lives, and we were able to help thousands of clients with their Social Security Disability and VA Benefits claims, resulting in millions of dollars in benefits, with much-needed insurance coverage for many, in 2022.
One of our 2022 core memories was our Annual Free Legal Aid & Resource Fair, which provided free legal advice in a wide range of areas, free health screening, and valuable community resources. This event has always been an enormous success; this year was no exception, with more than 100 people coming out! We were thrilled to provide such valuable community resources, partnering with incredible organizations and referral firms, and we look forward to an even larger Fair planned for 2023. Save the Date: May 19, 2023!
We have also supported the community in other ways – from speaking to local non-profits, educational webinars, legal workshops, and more. Our team volunteered at countless community events, including providing Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of Michigan residents and sponsoring twelve children for Christmas, providing everything from basic needs to wish-list items comprised of bicycles, iPads, toys, and more. Giving back to our community is a top priority for Disability Law Group, and we are always looking for new ways to make a positive impact.
To further recognize and celebrate those who go above and beyond in their communities, we introduced our DLG Superheroes program. This program highlights local individuals who have performed selfless acts and put the needs of others before their own. If you know someone who deserves recognition as a DLG Superhero, we encourage you to nominate them to receive the recognition they deserve throughout the year and to win fun prizes!
In 2022, our team also grew considerably, adding ten additional staff over the course of the year – going from 27 to 37 total DLG team members – allowing us to serve our clients better and meet the demands of our growing business. We also kicked down walls in 2022 in the literal sense! Our Grand Opening showcased our new, larger space, which has provided us with the room and resources we need to continue to grow.
Our attorneys at Disability Law Group were also recognized with several prestigious awards this year: from Michigan Super Lawyer Rising Star and AVVO Client Choice Award to ABA Young Leaders Award and the AV Preeminent Attorney award, and more. These awards are a testament to our dedication, expertise, and compassion, and the results we have delivered for our clients, and we could not be more proud.
Overall, 2022 was a momentous year for Disability Law Group. We are deeply grateful for our community’s support and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those with disabilities. We have big plans for 2023, and we can’t wait to share more big announcements soon! From all of us at Disability Law Group – thank you for your support and trust, and we look forward to strengthening our communities together in 2023.
