Margaret Henderson

SSA EDPNA Representative & Senior Paralegal

I work at Hoefer Flaming as an EDPNA, non-attorney representative licensed by the Social Security Administration. I represent disability claimants at all stages of the administrative process, and I also work as a paralegal with Jeremy Flaming.

As an Iowa City native and University of Iowa graduate, living and working here gives me a great sense of community.  I pursued a degree in Psychology with the goal of helping others, and I bring that same mentality to serving my clients here at Hoefer Flaming.  After beginning my Paralegal career at a Cedar Rapids law firm, I started working with Mary at the Mears Law Office in 2008.

I live in Iowa City with my family and dog, Charlie.
