(WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.) – Collins Price PLLC, a Winston-Salem, N.C.-based disability law firm, announced today its expansion to Charlotte, Greensboro and surrounding areas. Founding Partners Brad Collins and Andrew Price say the firm is formalizing the announcement due to the firm’s continued growth over the last five years.
“We were fortunate to meet at Wake Forest Law and to start our business in Winston-Salem,” says Founding Attorney Brad Collins. “With the support of this community and our former clients, we have been able to grow into surrounding markets organically. Now, we are intentionally applying resources and growing our in-house team to meet the deep need in Charlotte, Greensboro, High Point and surrounding areas for professional and compassionate Social Security disability representation.”
Founding Attorney Andrew Price says the firm is known for its personalized, quality-over-quantity approach to serving clients. As opposed to large national disability firms or multi-discipline firms that have many areas of practice, Collins Price focuses exclusively on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and other related Social Security Disability programs.
“Many years ago, we made a decision to move towards a quality model, “said Price. That means clients still personally work with a local attorney on their claim and that our excellent in-house team of case managers prioritizes ongoing client communication.”
Still, the firm was not immune from the effects of Covid-19 and experienced a severe and swift decline in client growth early in 2020. This, in combination with the Social Security’s decision to pause new in-person client hearings presented a significant challenge for Collins Price.
“Ultimately, we decided that we would continue pushing forward on remote hearings since that was the right thing to do for our clients,” says Price.
That decision paid off when the company saw a return-to-normal growth patterns later in the year. And, they note that remote hearings have been proceeding “better-than-expected.”
“In some cases, hearings are hitting schedules more quickly so claimants are receiving decisions and if successful, their benefits, more quickly than they would in past,” said Collins. “It’s a win-win.”
