My son was diagnosed with a disability in his teen years.  Finally, what we were experiencing made sense.  The staff at Paladin Disability guided the process of application for and eventual success in receiving tax credits for the prior 10 year period.  The process was long and complicated, but the staff at Paladin, and in particular Dan, demonstrated continuous, determined, professional service and support throughout. Our family feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Paladin Disability.
