Kevin Probst focuses his practice on helping clients obtain short and long-term disability benefits at all stages of the process, from filing the initial claim to litigating appeals in federal court. Prior to joining Dabdoub Law Firm, Kevin spent nearly 10 years with Legal Services of Greater Miami successfully representing hundreds of clients in disability benefits, special education, and health insurance disputes.
Why Disability Law?
Kevin’s commitment to working on behalf of people with disabilities dates back to high school when he coached a Special Olympics running team and organized a 5K charity race to benefit the organization.
After serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia, Kevin moved to Washington, D.C. and taught middle school students with disabilities. It was ultimately this experience that fueled Kevin’s decision to attend law school and pursue a career in advocating for the legal rights of people with disabilities.
