Kelly Paullus is our legal assistant for the Social Security claims division at Derek L. Hall, P.C.

Ms. Paullus is a native of Memphis, Tennessee and she graduated from Mississippi State University with a bachelor’s degree in educational psychology in 2015.

Her interest in disability law stems from personal experience. A traumatic brain injury survivor, Ms. Paullus says she is familiar with many of the same issues that the firm’s clients face. She previously worked with the elderly and adults with physical disabilities at Home Instead Senior Care and Oxford HealthCare.

Outside of the office, Ms. Paullus combines her interest in exercise and health with community service. She regularly donates blood platelets and supports childhood cancer research, the Brain Injury Association of Mississippi, and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital by running in 5Ks and marathons.
