I have been a part of the team at Michael Armstrong Law since 2017. I have over 20 years of experience advocating for people with special needs, particularly those with intellectual and development disabilities. After several years as a stay-at-home mother of special needs children, my passion for advocacy led me to the University of New Mexico School of Law where I interned with the Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability. I received the Award Recognizing Excellence in International Law and Comparative Law, having also spent time in Uganda, Africa performing relief work for impoverished communities. I am a member of the Arc of New Mexico’s Disability Response Team, which is comprised of attorneys, police officers, and victim service providers, to assist those with intellectual and developmental disabilities impacted by the criminal justice system.Call Us Email Us Quick Contact Form
“I am a US Army veteran and spent two frustrating years trying to fight for my SSD benefits alone. I expressed my concern at the bus stop one day to another vet who immediately recommended Mr. Armstrong. His office happened to be right off Central and easily accessible by ABQ Ride. His staff welcomed me and put my mind at ease. Mr. Armstrong was professional and direct and made me feel comfortable during my initial interview. When he told me he would represent me I knew that I had someone trustworthy and knowledgeable having my back. He kept meticulous records and always kept me in the loop. He prepared and coached me for my hearing never leaving out a detail all the way down to "take out your nose ring"! The judge made a fully favorable decision two weeks later.”
“After being denied twice I called Mr. Armstrong. He was very respectful & a true professional. He was thorough in explaining the process & never failed to answer any questions. On the day of my hearing I was having an especially bad day but he was supportive & compassionate enough for me to feel comfortable about proceeding. I was able to get my disability approved & wish I had called him sooner.”
"Laura Johnson recently represented me in my case for social security disability. She did a great job. She was very thorough and prepared me for any and all situations that may arise. Not only was she very helpful, her entire staff was always kind and compassionate whenever I'd call the office."
"My name is Michelle and I had the unfortunate pleasure of becoming chronically and permanently sick when I was in my late 40s. When I finally accepted that I could no longer work for a living, I had to find a good disability lawyer."
"I have been battling my disability case for 4.5 years. I was denied numerous times and Laura Johnson took my case to the federal level and won. My case was remanded back to Social Security and we just had my 2nd hearing and WON! Laura gave so much time and dedication to my case I will definitely say she’s a 10!!! She knows more about my medical records than I do. Such a professional kindhearted woman willing to battle for the right decision for her clients. M.R."<< PrevNext >>
