Welcome and thank you for viewing our website.
We have been handling Social Security Disability cases and Workers’ Compensation Claims for 20 years. We have handled these cases from inception through the hearing level, deposition, trial, administrative hearings and also Federal District Court. We recently became involved with representing Disabled Veterans. These areas of practice are extremely rewarding because we are able to achieve fast results for deserving people. We navigate a somewhat complex legal system to help the client obtain the medical and monetary benefits they are rightfully entitled to and clearly deserve.
Our fee is contingent upon winning your case and you receiving benefits. Our legal fee is set by statute. The statute permits the attorney to charge 25% or $6,000, whichever is less. The fee is deducted from retroactive benefits.

We have successfully won benefits for clients aged 18 years old to 66 years old for illnesses such as:
- Fibromyalgia: Currently there are no diagnostic tests, such as x-rays or blood tests, to detect fibromyalgia. The symptoms of fibromyalgia may overlap with the symptoms of some other conditions. That is why fibromyalgia is sometimes difficult for healthcare professionals to diagnose. www.fibromyalgia.com
- Lyme’s Disease: Lyme disease can be hard to diagnose because you may not have noticed a tick bite. Also, many of its symptoms are like those of the flu and other diseases. In the early stages, your health care provider will look at your symptoms and medical history, to figure out whether you have Lyme disease. Lab tests may help at this stage, but may not always give a clear answer. In the later stages of the disease, a different lab test can confirm whether you have it.
- Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that causes people to stop breathing while they sleep. Each time this temporary pause in breathing occurs, the body responds by waking up for a very short period of time. People who suffer from sleep apnea may stop breathing hundreds of times every night. Whether or not the person with sleep apnea realizes how much they are struggling to breath during the night, sleep apnea has very serious effects on the quality and restfulness of sleep on the person's health. www.healthysleep.com
- Nystagmus: Nystagmus is a condition in which there is involuntary and rhythmic movement or oscillation of the eye. It is often caused by an underlying ocular or neurological disorder. There are various types of nystagmus. Downbeat nystagmus is characterized by a nystagmus that is more pronounced when the child looks down, especially when looking to the side, or in lateral gaze. An accentuated oscillation when looking up is seen in upbeat nystagmus. Seesaw nystagmus is an unusual type of in which one eye moves in and down and the other out and up. A periodic alternating nystagmus (PAN) is observed in primary gaze when the patient is looking straight ahead and is characterized by eye movements that continuously change direction and speed. Peripheral vestibular nystagmus may be accompanied by vertigo, nausea, and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. This type of nystagmus is not always apparent but can be seen by a doctor when he or she looks in the back of the eye with a direct ophthalmoscope.
- Aortic aneurysm: An aortic aneurysm is a general term for any swelling (dilation or aneurysm) of the aorta, usually representing an underlying weakness in the wall of the aorta at that location. While the stretched vessel may occasionally cause discomfort, a greater concern is the risk of rupture, which causes severe pain; massive internal hemorrhage; and, without prompt treatment, death occurs rapidly.
- There are three major types of diabetes:
- Type 1 Diabetes diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood. Many patients are diagnosed when they are older than age 20. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. Daily injections of insulin are needed. The exact cause is unknown. Genetics, viruses, and autoimmune problems may play a role.
- Type 2 Diabetes is far more common than type 1. It makes up most of diabetes cases. It usually occurs in adulthood, but young people are increasingly being diagnosed with this disease. The pancreas does not make enough insulin to keep blood glucose levels normal, often because the body does not respond well to insulin. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it, although it is a serious condition. Type 2 diabetes is becoming more common due to increasing obesity and failure to exercise.
- Gestational diabetes is high blood glucose that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes. Women who have gestational diabetes are at high risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life. Diabetes affects more than 20 million Americans. Over 40 million Americans have pre-diabetes (early type 2 diabetes).
- Meniere’s disease: Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance. People suffering from Meniere’s disease experience a variety of symptoms that may come and go, ranging from extreme dizziness, vertigo (a feeling that your surroundings are moving when there is no actual movement), nausea, tinnitus (roaring, humming or ringing sounds in your ears), pressure and pain, and hearing loss. Episodes of vertigo are considered the most prominent symptom, with episodes typically lasting at least 20 minutes. This debilitating disorder can greatly affect your family life, work and social activities.
