A thriving metropolis along the banks of the Hackensack River, the City of Hackensack welcomes a diverse assortment of people and businesses in the distant shadows of the New York City skyline. The area was originally home to Lenni Lenape Native Americans, a highly respected Algonquian sect. The City’s name, however, is taken from the Achkinheshcky tribe, which is believed to have coexisted peacefully with Dutch settlers taming the land in 1693. Today, Hackensack is home to a wide variety of residents as well as Farleigh Dickinson University and the New Jersey Naval Museum. Notable former residents include American literary giant F. Scott Fitzgerald, mandolin extraordinaire David Grisman and WNBA basketball player Teresa Weatherspoon.

Established in 2003, the firm combines over 50 years of disability claims experience to provide clients full service representation.

Persons who are unable to work for one year or more due to physical or mental impairments (or a combination thereof) may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) operates two disability benefits programs: Supplemental Security Income (SSI), payments for adults and children who are disabled or blind and have limited income and resources; and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which is available to disabled persons, their spouses and children, regardless of income and resources, if the disabled person has made sufficient payments into the Social Security system

Although the majority of disability benefit claims, including those with merit, are initially denied, the Hackensack Social Security disability lawyers at Hermann Law Group proudly maintain a success rate of over 90 percent of Social Security disability claims handled in the last year. We will: explain the complex filing and hearing processes to you in manner that is readily understandable; file your claim electronically, so the SSA receives it and begins processing it the same day; and aggressively follow up on your claim, making certain that it is processed as quickly as possible

Based on our experience, we know what the SSA’s local analysts and judges are looking for, and understand how to present your claim in the strongest possible light. 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.
