Practice Area: Social Security
Nancy Mizerak, M.D., J.D. joined KBG in 2010 with the goal of expanding the Social Security disability practice in the firm. After more than five years in a general practice law firm in Lancaster County which included Social Security, family law, bankruptcy and estates, Nancy has chosen to concentrate her efforts in Social Security Disability cases. Her passion for disability cases is a natural fit with her deep interest in medicine and her experience as a family physician.
The practice of law is a second career for Nancy. Her first career was as a solo practitioner in Family Medicine for fifteen years. After graduating from the University of South Florida College of Medicine in 1980, she accepted a residency position at the Lancaster General Hospital Department of Family and Community Medicine. After residency training, she put out her shingle and developed a thriving general practice.
In the early 1990’s, Nancy became interested in the law after serving as an expert in several medical malpractice cases. Nancy closed her practice, returned to school and received her J.D. from the Villanova University School of Law in 2001. Nancy continues to employ her extensive and unique experience at KBG representing disabled claimants in the appeals to the Social Security Office of Hearing Operations. Nancy is an active member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representative which provides updates in government regulations, research materials and intensive, advanced annual seminars.
