Shina Kang is the case manager for all of Cataldi & Associates’ Korean clients. She helps us communicate effectively with our clients, both listening to their injuries and descriptions of the accident, as well as ensuring that medical and insurance professionals understand our clients’ needs.
“I immigrated to the U.S. from Seoul in my early teens to Laurel Springs in South Jersey. English came quickly to me because I loved to read, but technical work was also easy for me. After college, I became a Quality Analyst for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and started raising my own family. (I have attended the same church for the last 22 years.) The court system has also hired me to interpret on medical cases for the last 14 years on a freelance basis.
That experience – where I come from, and where I have worked – makes me a true asset to Cataldi & Associates. I know the court system intimately, specifically as it pertains to injuries, medical malpractice, and disabilities. Plus I speak Korean fluently. I understand our clients, and I understand the court process.
As case manager for Mr. Cataldi’s Korean clients, I meet with new clients; I help them arrange for Dr.’s visits if need be. I make sure their treatments are correct and speak with their doctors, as well as the insurance adjusters. From the first day you call until the settlement check arrives in the mail, I am in contact with you at all times.” When a person or persons sustains injuries in a motor vehicle accident, we fight to win the client’s claim. We handle all levels of cases: Arbitration; Mediations; Bench Trials; and Jury Trials. This means that we are prepared to handle your case, no matter what happens.
We typically push aggressively for early, favorable settlements. This gives you immediate relief, saves you time, and lets you move forward. I meet most of my clients in their homes, so I can get to know them and help them most effectively with their problems. We often set up the medical portion of the claim for our clients so they can receive treatment for their injuries. We follow along with the treatment to be sure that diagnostic testing is completed, and when necessary, we have diagnostic testing reviewed by experts to tie the injuries to the accident.

We represent Claimants denied social security benefits - whether they be Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD/SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). We handle Claimant matters from their inception to the final decision, even if that takes a rigorous and determined appeals process. Our approval rate is currently 90%; 90% of my clients receive financial support from the government for medical conditions that prevent them from working. Even though that is already extremely high, we want to raise that figure a bit higher in 2015.
