Gabriel J. Hermann, a founding partner of Hermann Law Group, PLLC, began practicing Disability Law in 1997, and has successfully represented thousands of disabled claimants since that time. After earning degrees from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and the Benjamin N.

After two years with a large, national disability law firm, in 1999 he began working with Lew Insler, who was already a well known Disability Law attorney in Westchester. Gabe and Lew became partners in 2003, forming Hermann Law Group, PLLC.
Gabe lectures often to both legal groups and disability-related organizations, as well as to the general public. He has appeared twice on CNNfn, once when he was interviewed for a “Smart Assets” segment about Disability claims, and again as a guest on “The Flip Side,” providing answers to questions about disability from a national audience.
Gabe is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey, and in the Federal District Courts for the Southern Districts of New York and the District of New Jersey. President of the New York Social Security Bar Association (NYSSBA), Gabe is also a member of the American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, and the Bergen County Bar Association.
