Attorney Profile

Dividing her practice between workers' compensation matters and Social Security Disability, Kathleen Walsh is the founder and sole owner of her eponymous law firm. Located in Occoquan, she provides representation to people throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia as well as the District of Columbia. Admitted to practice in Virginia, Ms. Walsh is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

In her workers' compensation practice, Ms. Walsh assists both union and nonunion clients who have been injured on the job and who are as a result seeking their rightful benefits under their employer's workers' compensation insurance coverage. Her representation in this regard starts with helping to ensure that the initial claim contains all required documentation and is filed on a timely basis, and she also provides advocacy at subsequent hearings in the event that it is denied by the employer or its carrier.

Ms. Walsh also counts among her clients people who are no longer able to work as a result of a mental or physical disability and who are eligible to file for Social Security Disability benefits. This is a more complex process than workers' compensation, and unfortunately, the majority of applications around the country are initially denied. Ms. Walsh helps her clients through all stages, including appearing on their behalf before administrative law judges in the event of a rejection. Her excellent track record in both of her practice areas have earned her a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

Ms. Walsh pursued her undergraduate education at The George Washington University and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1981. She then went on to attend The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 1986. She is a member of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.
