If you know of a family member, friend, neighbor, former employer, former colleague, clergy member, teacher, or other non-expert witness who might provide helpful testimony in your case, tell your Charlotte disability lawyer about this person. If you are not currently represented by a lawyer, we may be able to help. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your situation.
