MedLaw Associates PC
Lansing disability lawyers
Experienced • Compassionate • Local

MedLaw Associates, P.C. is located in Lansing’s  historic Old Town – in a restored Victorian style home  located one-half block from the Grand River, where we started practicing law in in 1987, handling  only Social Security Disability cases.  We are both Michigan natives with backgrounds in government and social services.

Ellen M. Hart, M.S.W., J.D.

  I was born and raised in Iron County in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and from the University of Michigan with a Master of Social Work degree.  I received my law degree from the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law in 1987.
Prior to entering private practice, I worked for the Michigan Department of Social Services (now the Department of Human Services), where I helped disabled people qualify for SSI and Social Security Disability.  Before that, I worked  as a legislative aide in the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C. helping constituents untangle problems with the Social Security Administration and state government.

​Marsha E. Wood, J.D.

I was raised in the Lansing area and graduated from Sexton High School more years ago than I want to admit.  Despite being from Lansing, I attended the University of Michigan  and received a bachelor’s degree in Latin.   After graduation I taught Latin at Marshall High School.   After teaching for a short period of time, I went to work for the State of Michigan.  I worked directly with disadvantaged and disabled people for many years  before  transferring to a job writing policy based on federal and state rules.  The latter job gave me experience in dealing with governmental rules and regulations.
I received  my law degree from Thomas M. Cooley School of Law  where I graduated cum laude in 1987.
                               State Government to Private Practice
We left State government  to establish our law practice in 1989.  After years in government service, we were determined that our new work environment  would bear no resemblance to a government office.  Our plan was to make it a welcoming place with sunlight and nature -- where people coming in for help would feel welcome and at ease.     We know we have succeeded  when a client comes into the office and says that it “feels like home”.
