Keene Valley’s Kayla Hebert passes Social Security test
Keene Valley native Kayla Hebert, a paralegal with the Law Office of Mark Schneider in Plattsburgh, recently completed and passed the “Non-Attorney Disability Representative” test administered by the Social Security Administration.
This test certifies non-attorneys with Social Security to represent people in their disability appeal cases. It is given nationally, once-a-year, to non-lawyers from all over the country.
