Jeremy Flaming

I have advocated for injured workers my entire career.  I joined the Hoefer Law Firm to help working people and people with disabilities get a fair chance, and I’m proud to fight for them.  As a beneficiary myself, I understand the importance of Social Security.  My dad died when I was in high school, and the program was there for my family when we needed it most.  Those benefits helped me become the first member of my family to graduate from college and inspired my career.  I am honored to devote my life’s work to serving people the system might have otherwise overlooked.
