Located along the banks of the Passaic River in New Jersey’s Bergen County, the borough of Fair Lawn is home to more than 32,000 residents. Named Slooterdam by 18th Century Dutch settlers who lived in the area, Fair Lawn was first inhabited by Native Americans of the Lenni-Lenapi tribes who later moved west. The borough’s current handle is a nod to the estate built in what is now Fair Lawn by New York merchant David Acker in 1865. The area’s plentiful game and fishing and lush farmland originally attracted settlers to Fair Lawn; today it’s a suburban hamlet with a small town feel. Notable current and former residents include singer Regina Spektor, former New York Giant Jim Finn and actress Lee Meredith.

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, the person must file a claim with the Social Security Administration (SSA) the federal agency that operates the benefits program. Unfortunately, the SSA initially denies the majority of claims filed, including many with merit. A person whose claim is initially denied can then seek review by an SSA Administrative Law Judge. As experienced Social Security disability lawyers, it’s our view that an administrative hearing before and ALJ is a claimant’s best opportunity to win his or her case.

At Hermann Law Group, PLLC we combine more than 50 years experience to focus solely on disability cases. We assist client’s by filing a benefits claim on the client’s behalf, gathering the necessary evidence to prove the claim and following up with SSA staff to ensure that it has everything it needs to decide on the claim and representing the client at an administrative 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.
