In October 2017, Elville and Associates welcomed Meghan E. McCulloch as the Firm’s newest Attorney. Meghan brings her substantial talents to Elville and Associates’ Baltimore office, located at The Rotunda in Baltimore’s Roland Park neighborhood.
Meghan’s practice focuses in all areas of Social Security law – from claims for Social Security disability benefits (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), childhood SSI benefits, and disabled widow(er) benefits, including all levels of appeal, from the initial application to and including representation before the U.S. District Court of Maryland (federal court). Along these lines, Meghan has a wealth of experience in addressing the unique needs of individuals and families as they navigate through the disability benefit process. Her work involving childhood SSI cases and federal court appeals are unique, as most disability attorneys do not routinely handle these types of cases. Meghan also has a practice concentration in elder law – an ever-changing and complex practice area.
“I am delighted to say that Meghan E. McCulloch has joined Elville and Associates!” remarked Mr. Stephen R. Elville, Principal of Elville and Associates. “On both personal and professional levels, Meghan brings a new dimension and capability to our Elder Law Department, and adds her robust full-time Social Security-focused practice to the firm’s repertoire of services. Meghan is an accomplished Social Security attorney. It is no surprise to any of us that Meghan has been named to the 2018 Maryland Rising Stars list, her third year in a row. I look forward to Elville and Associates’ client family and our tax and financial advisors getting to know more about Meghan’s work and capabilities.”
As Elville and Associates has established a strong reputation for empathy and a “Caring for Clients Model” over the years to coincide with the Firm’s mission and vision of educating clients and their families through counseling and superior legal-technical knowledge, Meghan was attracted to the firm’s culture and purpose. After knowing Mr. Elville for the past several years, and through working with him as co-counsel, Meghan knew she had found the right firm with which to continue her growth as an attorney and make the biggest difference in the lives of her clients.
“I am delighted to join the law firm of Elville and Associates,” said Meghan. “Since being admitted to the Bar in 2010, the primary focus of my practice has been dedicated to assisting my clients in obtaining disability benefits from the Social Security Administration based on a variety of physical and mental health conditions. I have a passion for helping my clients navigate challenging periods in their lives, and this aligns quite closely with the passion and culture here at Elville and Associates. I strongly believe in the firm’s commitment and dedication to client education, as the law and legal processes can be incredibly difficult and overwhelming for the average layperson to navigate. From day one, I have found Elville and Associates to be a wonderful working environment with a supportive team that is committed to providing high quality, cutting edge legal services. I am truly excited to join the attorneys and staff here to offer my experience and services to our clients.”
Mrs. McCulloch, previously of The Law Offices of Steven H. Heisler., is a graduate of the University of Temple and received her law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law. She is admitted to practice law before the United States District Court (District of Maryland) and the Maryland Court of Appeals, has been selected by Super Lawyers to the Maryland Rising Stars list for the past three years (2016-2018), and is also a member of the Maryland State Bar Association, the American Bar Association. She is also a volunteer attorney with the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service and is an Executive Board Member of the Disability Section of the Maryland Association for Justice.
