Nestled on the banks of Long Island Sound’s north shore, Larchmont is a village within the Town of Mamaroneck in New York’s Westchester County. The village was originally inhabited by Native American Algonquians and later settled by the Dutch in the early 17th Century. Thanks to its idyllic waterfront location and close proximity (18 miles) to Manhattan, Larchmont became known as a resort destination for city dwellers as early as 1860. Its well-respected schools and charming cottages have also attracted more than 5,000 residents. In 2005, CNN ranked the village the 11th best place to live in the country. Actor Douglas Fairbanks, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Oscar-winning director Ang Lee and comedian Joan Rivers are among Larchmont’s notable current and former residents.

Social Security Disability Insurance is a federal benefit system for disabled workers and/or their dependents, managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). In order to be eligible, a person must be unable to work for a year or more due to a physical or mental impairment or combination thereof. Just as you may begin collecting “regular” Social Security Retirement benefits when you retire, you may apply to collect Social Security Disability benefits if you become disabled and are unable to work before you reach your “full retirement age.”

Disabled persons seeking Social Security disability benefits must file a claim with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Unfortunately, the SSA initially denies the majority of claims it receives, including many with merit. Claimants who are initially denied may appeal the decision, a process which often involves a hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge. It is our experience that the appellate hearing is a claimant’s best opportunity to win his or her case.

At Hermann Law Group, we dedicate our practice solely to disability cases. Skilled and experienced local litigators, we know what the Social Security Administration’s analysts and judges are looking for, and we know how to present your claim in the strongest possible light. 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.
