Situated along the banks of the Hudson River, the town of Rhinebeck in New York’s Dutchess County is a quaint retreat just 100 miles north of Manhattan. The village was founded by Dutch settlers in 1686 and features more than 400 sites listed on the National Historic Register. Rhinebeck thrived as a commercial outpost in its early years. Today the town is dotted with historic inns – including Beekman Arms, the country’s oldest inn – and charming bed a breakfasts, attracting visitors from around the state. Rhinebeck drew national attention in the summer of 2010 when former first daughter Chelsea Clinton held her wedding ceremony at the Astor mansion, which was built in Rhinebeck more than 100 years earlier.

If you are unable to work for a year or longer due to a physical or mental impairment, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Unfortunately, the benefits claims process can be long and complex and the Social Security Administration (SSA) initially denies the majority of claims it reviews, including many with merit. A successful claim typically includes comprehensive medical and other evidence and often requires at least one appeal.

At Hermann Law Group, we have the experience, legal knowledge and compassionate understanding to guide you through the Social Security Disability benefits claim process. With more than 50 years of combined experience, we know what the SSA is looking for in a claim. We understand what information is needed from your doctors to obtain a favorable decision and we will insure that your claim is presented in a convincing manner to the agency.

Unlike many firms, we handle claims from start to finish: gathering all of the necessary evidence, filing the claim on a client’s behalf and following up with SSA staff to ensure it has everything it needs to decide on the claim. Unlike so-called “claim representatives,” we are licensed attorneys and skilled litigators who can actually represent you in both an administrative hearing before an SSA judge and in federal court.

We are successful in well over 90% of the claims we handle year after year, and we can offer you the expertise and support that you need during this stressful, difficult time. 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.
