Nestled along the banks of the Hudson River in New York’s Dutchess County, the Town of Hyde Park is probably best known as Franklin D. Roosevelt’s hometown, but has been attracting residents and visitors since it was settled more than 250 years ago. Originally called “Stoutenburgh,” the town takes its current name from a local estate. More than 20,000 people call Hyde Park home and many more come to visit FDR’s home each year. The nationally renowned Culinary Institute of America, where famous chefs such as Grant Achatz and Richard Blais learned their craft, is located on the town’s west end.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits to individuals who are unable to work for one year or more due to a physical or mental impairment (or combination of impairments). In order to obtain benefits, a person must file a claim with the SSA. If you’ve worked and paid taxes, you’ve already paid into the Social Security system.

At Hermann Law Group, we focus our practice exclusively on disability cases. Unlike other law firms, our clients meet with an attorney from the start. We will gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim and present it to the SSA in the most convincing possible manner. We are not just attorneys; we also are skilled litigators. When we prepare your claim, we know what the SSA’s analysts and judges are looking for and we know how to present your claim in the strongest possible light. We will also represent you in a hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge and in a federal appeal, if necessary.

We will pursue your claims vigorously and efficiently, maximizing and maintaining the benefits to which you are entitled. Although the SSA initially denies the majority of claims filed, 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.
