Ruth F. Kolb, Esquire has been practicing Social Security disability law since 2003 handling every level of representation from initial claims through all stages of appeal.
Prior to forming Ruth Kolb Law Offices, LLC she was affiliated with Osterhout Disability Law, LLC and conducted policy work on behalf of children and families through the University of Pittsburgh’s Office of Child Development.
Ruth’s career has focused on providing individuals with access to critical benefits and resources which are essential life lines for both themselves and their families.
“The Social Security disability program was initially designed to promptly and efficiently pay benefits to people who are unable to work, but it has now become extremely difficult to navigate; people who “go it alone” are frequently denied their rightful benefits. Having legal representation offers individuals both guidance and advocacy during the complicated application process. We can, and often do, have a direct effect on a claim’s outcome.”
Ruth is a graduate of Duquesne University School of Law (JD 1984), Carnegie Mellon University (MPM 2000) and Purdue University (BS 1981). When not working, Ruth enjoys hiking, gardening and spending time with family. In addition to representing clients, Ruth is a frequent community speaker on the subject of Social Security disability benefits.
