About Us

As stated by Hubert H. Humphrey, former U.S. Senator and Vice President of the United States:

The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.

Firm in the belief that all people have a right to due process, for more than 40 years collectively the attorneys at Halpern Olivares PLLC (formerly Elie Halpern & Associates, PLLC), have been providing clients with top-notch representation in their Social Security (SSDI) disability, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability and Veterans’ (VA) disability cases.

Our team of SSDI, SSI and VA advocates consists of three lawyers, a Veterans’ Advocate, and two legal assistants. Our lawyers began their careers representing low income, disadvantaged clients, and they continue to do so. Elie, Jamie and the rest of the team have dedicated their professional lives to serving those individuals identified by Hubert Humphrey’s quotation above. Our team is dedicated and passionate about helping our clients through the time consuming, confusing, and overwhelming disability process. We will diligently fight for the benefits you deserve.

We provide representation throughout the south Puget Sound, including but not limited to Chehalis, Centralia, Rochester, Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Cosmopolis, Elma, Montesano, Mossyrock, Morton, Napavine, Shelton, McCleary, Rainier, Buckley, Bucoda, Toledo, Tenino, Oakville, Ocean Shores, Winlock, Westport, Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, Yelm, Dupont, Tacoma, Orting, Roy, Fife, Fircrest, Lakewood, and Puyallup. We represent Veterans in VA Disability Applications nationwide.
