Meet Abby Salgado, Disability Hearing Case Manager

May 2, 2024

A spotlight on one of the professional team members who works for you at Nash Disability Law.

When asked to describe Abigail Salgado (Abby to all who know her), her co-workers will tell you she is a “great bundle of energy.”

And after even a few moments near her you will see how accurate that description is. As a disability hearings case manager, she stays very busy taking care of all the paperwork for Nash Disability Law clients.

“My job is to assure we have all of the information about a client’s case before the hearing, as this is critical. I can help answer any questions whenever the disability attorney is not available. I also manage their calendars and take care of any other tasks that the attorney needs.”

It’s all in a day’s work.

A native Chicagoan, Abby has been helping our clients for more than a few years now.

“I like giving our Social Security Disability clients peace of mind and some sort of comfort knowing that they are our priority,” Abby says. “Making others feel included, loved, and heard is my passion.” And then with a sly smile she admits, “I am also very, very passionate about coffee.”

“God first, others second. I am third. This is what I try to live by. Loving God first, loving and serving others second and while doing that, I know that God looks after me and takes care of all my needs.”

Those “others” include her family, who factor into her life in a major way. She’s the youngest of eight siblings and now auntie to 26 beautiful nieces and nephews.

“I grew up in a large family. That has made me love family time, which is one of my biggest passions and joy as well.”

Even in her free time, Abby, is perpetually in motion.

“I am what some people would call a ‘gym rat.’ I like lifting and staying active. I love serving at my local church. I am currently the leader of our youth and young adults’ group, which brings me so much joy. When I’m not working, you can usually catch me either at the gym or at a coffee shop, probably reading or writing my next message for my church group. They keep me on my toes.”
