Thank you for connecting to my site. Now your question is "Why should you hire me as your social security disability attorney?" Please consider the following as to why I am the best person to handle your case.

  • Experience-I have practiced Social Security Disability Law since 1994. I am a member of a national organization of representatives (NOSSCR) who protect the rights of the disabled. I have represented hundreds of applicants who have successfully attained their benefits.
  • Local Representation- I am a Boston Social Security Disability Lawyer and have offices throughout Massachusetts to serve your needs and come to your home if such a visit is necessary due to mobility issues. That is one advantage of hiring a local attorney. I am not based in another state, and ask that you do all your business with me by mail.
  • Handled by a social security attorney, not an "advocate" or paralegal — I will not push you off to a non-lawyer to handle your case.
  • I have been recognized by SuperLawyers in their annual listing of top lawyers in their fields of practice. This honor is limited to the top 5% of lawyers in the state.

Social Security benefits are your safety net. Everyone who retains my firm, retains me! I not only have a wealth of experience in this area, but also, I have built my reputation on personal service. The government decides on the fee. If you can hire an experienced lawyer to handle your case for the same price as a non-lawyer, why would you go anywhere else?

How does a social security attorney get paid?

The government sets the fee for representation on Social Security Disability cases and Supplemental Security (SSI). The attorney receives 25% of the retroactive award. So, if you receive $10,000.00 in back money, the government sends you $7,500 and the attorney $2,500. There is a cap of $6,000.00 right now so that no matter how much the retroactive is, the fee is the LESSER of 25% or $6,000.00.

Sure, it would have been a whole lot better to not have to hire a lawyer. I get it. You are the one who is impaired from working and this is money that you have paid into the system all these years. But the government has created a maze and it is very difficult without capable representation to get you through it. The figures don’t lie. Having a lawyer or not involved will make a dramatic difference in whether you ever see the benefit.

The many clients I have serviced over the years may be your neighbors, friends or community members. I am one of the few lawyers in Massachusetts who practices disability law, and I am proud of it. Let me help you today.

How the Affordable Care Act can help Social Security

At the end of November, CBS came out with the latest poll on Americans' view on health care. Perhaps not surprisingly, given all that's transpired, approval ratings are the lowest they've been since CBS started polling on the Affordable Care Act…
