Gary Penar has been an attorney for over 40 years, with 22 years of that focused in Social Security disability law.  Gary’s father had a heart conditions and physical limitations, but that didn’t stop him from working hard, and then unfortunately paying for it in pain & inability to work later. This inspired Gary at a young age to want to help disabled people in some capacity, obviously not knowing he’d spend the better part of his career helping disabled people fight for and win the Social Security disability benefits they deserve.

Attending law school brought Gary to Spokane, where he attended Gonzaga Law and graduated with his law degree in 1977. Gary is also a former member of the Air National Guard. Having been a Spokane resident since 1974, Gary has embraced the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer, spending his free time skiing in the winter, camping, and being an active participant in Bloomsday for 42 years, coincidentally the same number of years he’s been married to his wife, Janice.

Gary’s over 2 decades of expertise in the Social Security disability practice and his dedication to his clients are what have brought him this far – and he can help you too. Contact our office today for a free Social Security disability consultation today!

Gary helped shape his son’s values when it comes to assisting those in need. Eric Penar was born and raised in Spokane, worked and completed his undergrad in Portland, Oregon, and then returned to Spokane to work with Gary before attending law school. Eric graduated cum laude from law school in Phoenix, Arizona before returning to Spokane to further his career and passion for helping people get the benefits they need to pay bills, receive medical treatment, and help change a life for the better. Eric’s legal practice is focused only on helping disabled individuals get the benefits they deserve.

The dedication and passion Eric displays in his professional life is the same as his personal life, which he shares with his wife, Ronica, and their son, Logan. Spending time and playing with Logan is definitely a highlight of his life. When Eric is not fighting for Social Security claimant’s benefits, you can most certainly find him skiing in the winter, whether at Schweitzer in Sandpoint, Idaho, Silver Mountain in Kellogg, Idaho, or 49 Degrees North Mountain Resort in Chewelah, Washington.  In addition to hitting 60 mph on the ski slopes, Eric enjoys landscape photography, camping at Colville National Forest’s Big Meadow Lake, boating on Lake Pend Oreille or Lake Coeur d’Alene, and he’s even hiked Mount St. Helens!

Eric understands the value of the trust his clients put in his hands when fighting for their Social Security benefits – Eric’s motto is to help who you can within your community with the tools that you have – and he does just that!
