Named by the Native Americans who originally inhabited the land, Chappaqua is a quaint hamlet within the town of New Castle in the northern end of New York’s Westchester County. The area was settled by Quakers in the early 18th century and their meeting house is still a centerpiece of present day Chappaqua. Once a thriving and abundant farming community, Chappaqua is now home to many New York City commuters who travel to and from Manhattan via train. Notable current and former residents include Bill and Hilary Clinton, Oscar-winning actor Alan Arkin and singer/songwriter Dar Williams.

A person who is unable to work for one year or more due to a physical or mental impairment – or combination thereof – is generally eligible for Social Security disability benefits. In order to obtain benefits, an individual must file a claim with the Social Security Administration (SSA), setting off what can be a long and complicated process. The SSA initially rejects more than half of the claims it reviews each year, including many with merit. A person whose claim is initially denied often must appear at a hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge in order to continue to pursue his or her claim.

At Hermann Law Group, we can help you in the Social Security disability claims process by presenting your claim to the SSA and its judges in the most convincing possible manner. We understand what the SSA’s analysts and judges are looking for and we know how to present your claim in the strongest possible light. While many other disability practices will ask you to file your claim yourself, we will take your case from the start and file your initial application. We will also obtain the medical and other evidence necessary to prove your claim and represent you at hearing or in a federal appeal if necessary.

We proudly maintain a success rate of over 90% for all decisions received over the past twelve months. We are so confident in our abilities that in Social Security Disability cases, we will not charge you a fee unless we win your case.
