As a law firm primarily focused on Social Security disability law, The Khaki Law Firm is well-acquainted with the hardships that can arise from any disability resulting from a congenital disorder, a mental disorder, or a debilitating injury. This is why Sara Khaki and her team of attorneys and social security claim representatives do everything in their power to support clients trying to overcome such difficult circumstances and get the legal and financial security they deserve.
While we know that dealing with the challenges that accompany any sort of disability is no easy undertaking, we honor and admire those who have been able to accomplish their goals in spite of these challenges.
