For 46 years, attorneys of Hinkle Prior & Fischer have been leaders in advocacy for people with disabilities and their families. Over the course of the last few months, we have stood by families more than ever. We do so because advocacy cannot take a sick day. We must not let the fact we are distant from one another – to separate us from one another or the cause which is so critically important to us all.

We cannot control the current situation, but we are empowered to control our response to it. We cannot predict what the next few months will bring, but we can become empowered to influence the outcome for our family members. Now more than ever, knowledge equals power. Join us.
