Attorney Debra Venhaus

Debra Venhaus has been a practicing attorney for over 20 years, with her first admission to practice in 1994 in after graduating from law school in Florida,where she represented disabled individuals at Social Security administrative law judge hearings through the law school AIDS LAW CLINIC. Entering law school, Ms. Venhaus intended to focus her future practice on real estate law. However, her focus changed when she felt the rewarding fulfillment in representing disabled people to obtain Social Security benefits that would so improve their lives.

She practiced Social Security law in Illinois in 1994 and 1995, returning to practice in Florida until relocating to practice in Washington State in June 2000 where she has made hr home. In 2002, Ms. Venhaus opened her own practice, continuing to represent disabled individuals. She maintains her licenses to practice in WA, FL, IL and DC with active practices in WA and FL.

Ms. Venhaus strives to ensure that she provides every client with the highest quality of representation, because helping a Social Security claimant to win disability benefits is helping that person achieve an improved quality of life.
