Sydney Kotalik


Sydney Kotalik graduated from William & Mary Law School in May 2021 and joined the Veterans Benefits group at GAD soon after.

While in law school, she took advantage of the clinic process and worked with the Veterans Benefits Clinic and the Special Education PELE clinic. By working directly with clients while still in school, Sydney developed a passion for disability rights and a knowledge of these specialized systems. She has also worked in banking and property matters, settlement disbursement, and with a legal aid organization. With more friends and family that have served or are currently serving than she can count, Sydney is proud to represent Veterans and their families towards obtaining disability benefits.

Sustaining member since 2022.
