Nestled in southern Westchester County and encompassing the villages of Bronxville and Tuckahoe, Eastchester is a five-square-mile town of more than 32,000 residents. It was created as a farming settlement in 1664, when 10 families migrated to the area from nearby Fairfield, Connecticut. While the area was considered neutral ground during the American Revolution, it was nevertheless inhabited by a number notable patriots over the years, including president John Adams and vice president Aaron Burr. Today, Eastchester attracts locals with good schools, the sprawling 116-acre Lake Isle Park, and a short commute to New York City.

In order to obtain Social Security Disability benefits, a disabled person must file a claim with the Social Security Administration (SSA), along with evidence showing that the person is unable to work for a year or more due to a physical or mental impairment (or combination of impairments). This begins what is often a long and complicated process. The SSA initially denies the majority of claims filed, including many with merit. A person whose claim is initially denied typically must appear at an administrative hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in order to continue to seek benefits.

The good news is that, having represented thousands of clients in the disability claim process, we believe that the ALJ hearing is a person’s best shot at winning his or her claim. Given our expertise and experience, our lawyers can provide vital assistance to clients at this and all stages of the claim process.

We know how the local Social Security offices consider Disability claims and we are intimately familiar with the decision making processes of the judges who decide appeals. As a result, we understand how to present a claim in the most clear and convincing manner. 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.
