Announcement: Shay Guess Joins the OBL Team!


Osterhout Berger Disability Law is expanding! We are thrilled to announce that Shay Guess, an experienced and skilled representative based in northern Mississippi, has joined the OBL team.

Shay has 8 years of experience in Social Security disability applications, appeals, and ALJ hearing representation. He passed the difficult EDPNA national exam administered by the Social Security Administration in 2015 demonstrating professionalism and competence. OBL Managing Partner, Karl Osterhout, met Shay years ago at a conference held by the National Association of Disability Representatives (NADR) and shares his excitement: “I am deeply impressed with Shay both as a person and as a highly dedicated Social Security rep. He is very aggressive in pursuing his client’s claims before Social Security judges, utilizing his own experiences and very effectively utilizing the training sessions that are provided throughout the year and at our annual conference. I could not be more thrilled to add him to our team.”

Shay cares deeply about helping individuals in his community and looks forward to utilizing OBL tools and resources to win disability cases for his clients. Shay adds, “I am teaming up with OBL for some of the same reasons I am working as a Disability Representative today. This team cares about the practice of disability law; they push for excellence in the outcome of the decisions; they don’t waiver in their approach; and at the end of the day, it’s still about the client and what is in the client’s best interest. I am looking forward to the challenges and the difference we can make in someone’s life that needs the best in their corner fighting for them.

Our clients in Mississippi will find that working with Guess will be a pleasant and compassionate experience and we are so excited about this addition to our team!
