Wright Disability Firm : Meet Wayne Wright

Meet Wayne Wright

The following is based on an interview with attorney Wayne Wright:

  1. So, Mr. Wright, we know you have been an attorney since 1978, but how do you manage to practice on a national level?
    1. Well, I am licensed to practice law in eight states plus the District of Columbia. But Wright & Wright is a firm that takes our years of experience practicing law and translates that into a national firm of advocates who focus only on Social Security disability. By focusing on only one area of federal law, Wright & Wright is able to excel where others only dabble.
  1. Why create a premier Social Security disability advocacy firm instead of some other area of the law?
    1. Before I went to law school in 1976, I was a special education teacher. I am absolutely sure that I learned more from those kids than I ever taught them. For instance, knowing that it is okay to need help is a noble character trait that many of us forget. There are those who don't take the time to acknowledge that we are all human and no matter how brave we are, we can all use help now and then. Special education students always make the best of the hand they are dealt, but aren't too proud to accept assistance. The same is true of most Social Security disability applicants. They proudly suffer without complaint, but when they allow me to help it sure makes my day.
  1. As a trial lawyer you have significant experience. What effect, if any, does this have on Wright & Wright, America's Social Security Disability Firm™?
    1. Trial law naturally enhances our Social Security disability firm. It has helped us fine tune, over more than a decade, the art and science of arguing before Social Security hearing judges. It has also played a key role in the development of our proprietary training systems that make sure our advocates are the best they can be.
  1. We have heard that you have been involved in many community or charitable projects over the years, such as the Smoke Alarms in Every Home campaign. Why are these important to you?
    1. Well, I suppose it is because humanity is important to me. None of us are perfect and all of us are in need of something. Being involved in community based projects keeps a person grounded in what it means to be human. That is the reason that our firm has partnered with hundreds of fire departments to install free smoke alarms in the homes of people who cannot afford them. Another way to stay connected is with non-profit groups. Perhaps this explains why, over the years, I have served in a management position in more than 50 community based non-profit associations. We can all learn!
  1. You're a regular speaker to legal groups and are affiliated with numerous prestigious organizations. How do you have the time?
    1. I think the question really ought to be how does any person not have the time. What I mean is that we all owe a duty to share what we have learned with others. Some do that through books, others teaching, others through group experience. But after decades of refining our methods, it is only right that we share what we know and what has made us the best at what we do. After helping more than 100,000 people with their Social Security disability claims, you learn a thing or two.
  1. Of what accomplishment during law school are you the most proud?
    1. In retrospect I would have to say that graduating #1 in my law class as magna cum laude is something I feel good about. At the time I was just doing my best without focusing on it. But knowing what I know now about the difficulty of law school, I wonder how I did it.
  1. What advice can you give to someone suffering from a disability?
    1. Two things. Don't quit fighting and hire the best advocates you can find.
