Attorney Bio

About Carol Brent

My Buffalo, New York social security disability practice is solely focused on guiding my clients through the complicated and often confusing maze of social security disability claims. I have received the most professional satisfaction from helping people with whom I have developed personal relationships.

I used to work for a large social security disability law firm and realized it wasn’t for me. I was frustrated at only talking to my clients at the initial meeting and having no contact with them until right before a hearing. I like to interact with my clients and get to know them as individuals. I feel that by communicating with my clients and understanding who they are I am better able to represent them.
I understand what you are going through having family and friends whom are disabled. They have gone through the process of applying for social security disability benefits and I have been there to witness their daily activities and struggles.
I have been involved with the legal community as well. I have been quoted by the Buffalo News, Buffalo Law Journal and the Christian Science Monitor. I have taught CLEs (education courses for other attorneys), been on legal discussion panels and have spoken to numerous community groups. I testified before the New York Senate to help pass a law against predatory mortgages. I worked with the Attorney General’s office as well as Senator Schumer’s office, appearing at a press conference with Senator Schumer on Rent to Own predatory loans. I wrote articles for the Erie County Bar and New York State Banking Department.

On a more personal level, I reside in Amherst with my husband Steve and a very spoiled chihuahua, Meeka.  I have two daughters, two very active grandsons, and a new baby granddaughter.
