Nathaniel D. Hitchcock, Law Clerk

Areas of Focus

Mr. Hitchcock’s personal experience as a Marine, including knowledge of orders, training, duty stations and deployment issues, brings a unique perspective to the firm’s Veterans’ Disability Benefits practice. His ability to understand military personnel records and service treatment records allows Mr. Hitchcock to assist in the development of service-connected disability claims. In addition to his work with our veteran clients, Mr. Hitchcock also assists our attorneys in the development and litigation of personal injury and medical malpractice claims. His background and training in the nursing field are of significance in the review and understanding of medical records and medical conditions at issue in veterans’ disability cases as well as cases involving personal injury or medical malpractice.
