Adrian J. DeGoriAttorney
Attorney Adrian J. DeGori knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue a career that involved helping people. In high school, she excelled in public speaking, English, and writing and upon participating in a mock trial, she was convinced that a career in law was her dream. In this field, she is able to help people not only in their personal lives, but also on a professional level.
Her top priority is to have patience and keep her clients informed. Social Security Disability is a very long process and sometimes her clients lose everything while waiting for a hearing date. She has found that keeping her clients well-informed of the process from start to finish has really made a difference. Maintaining patience, professionalism, and organization is required in this field. Also, being prepared in the courtroom has really been something that she prides herself on, as not only do the Judge's appreciate the diligence and completeness of her files, but her clients feel comfortable and trust her in representing them in matters that really can be life changing.
Adrian strives to do her best on every case that she handles. She is always upfront with her clients and makes sure they are fully aware of both the challenges with their claims as well as the possible outcomes. She loves what she does and thinks that is what makes her great at my job.
Adrian grew up in Sewickley, PA, which is a small town in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. She attended a small high school where she was very involved in after school activities and school sports. She went to college at the Pennsylvania State University in State College, PA and is a dedicated Nittany Lion Fan. She then went on to law school at a small school in Ohio, Ohio Northern University, where she obtained her law degree.
She is an avid sports fan who enjoys watching all sports, especially basketball, baseball, and football. She also enjoy playing recreational basketball at the YMCA. She is very dedicated to fitness and loves exercising on a regular basis and trying new fitness classes.
Adrian is very close with her family and enjoys spending holiday together, going out to dinner with family and friends, and trying the newest restaurants in town. She is involved in youth sports in her community. When she has the free time, she likes to participate in volunteer activities at Church.
