Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I have been thinking about it a lot this year.
The trajectory of our lives seldom follows a straight line. The ups and downs in life are a given, but how we respond to them is not. If, for example, you have been denied a promotion because of your race or gender, or if you have been denied long term disability benefits even though you clearly cannot work, you could choose to accept that treatment and try to move on with your life. On the other hand, you could choose to stand up for yourself, for your family, and fight the wrongful treatment levied upon you. (I am happy to see if we can help you with that fight.)
“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
— JOHN F. KENNEDY
When you stand up for yourself, you take a chance. You may win, you may not. Regardless of the outcome, however, you have tried to change your life for the better. You can thank yourself for trying to effect positive change in your life, but do not stop there. Whether you initially realize it or not, you can seldom attempt to change your life for the better by yourself. Usually effecting positive change in our lives takes the support and guidance of friends, colleagues, and sometimes strangers. Think about the people who have helped you and thank them.
This year, I have quite a bit to be thankful for. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for my incredibly supportive wife and parents, my friends, my colleagues, and my dogs. Each has helped me in immeasurable ways in the last year, perhaps in some ways they do not even realize. Most importantly, I am thankful for having the opportunity to do work I love, find interesting, and which hopefully makes a positive difference in the lives of others.
I do not know about you, but I am a lucky and thankful man.
Adam Garner is the definition of professionalism and expertise. He is currently handling my case, which turned out to be more difficult than expected, and is getting positive results. I would highly recommend Mr. Garner to anyone with a disability and/or workplace issue.
The Garner Firm provides quality advice and guidance for clients with employment matters. I highly recommend the Garner Firm.
Adam did an exceptional job in helping me both understand my situation and fight for my benefits/disability claim. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law and how it will effect your case. He was up front with us on how difficult our case may be and was always available to discuss our situation/answer questions. Adam also cares about you and takes an interest. He did an outstanding job to help me win my case against strong odds and was a blessing to have him as my lawyer. Thank you Adam for all you have done and continue doing on my behalf.
I would highly recommend Adam. He was courteous, professional, and very knowledgeable. He was attentive to my concerns and always responsive in a timely fashion.
How did we do?
