Leslie Muir Re-joins Chitwood & Fairbairn

Attorney Leslie W. Muir recently re-joined Chitwood & Fairbairn to enhance our capacity at the Appeals Council and in the United States District Court. Leslie, who headed our Veterans Law Practice nearly a decade ago, returns to us after choosing to be at home with her young children, followed by a brief foray into civil litigation. She is a graduate of Wellesley College, Yale Divinity School, and Northeastern School of Law.  She and her wife, Amy Ray, who is also an attorney, are long-time residents of Asheville.

We are pleased to have Leslie back, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve as your local resource for well-written briefs and excellent appellate advocacy in Social Security appeals. It is important to us to highlight your efforts on behalf of your clients at hearings, as well as the collective good work of the local bar. Our focus is on administrative error and returning the case and your client to you for a new hearing, if you would like to continue to handle the claim following remand. Please allow us to help you serve your clients who seek to appeal their denial of benefits.  We are honored to help you help them.
