The historic Village of Tarrytown rests on the Hudson River’s eastern shore, connecting Westchester County with upstate New York via the Tappan Zee Bridge. Originally inhabited by Weckquaesgeek Native Americans, the village later became home to Dutch settlers, before many prominent industrial leaders, including John D. Rockefeller and Standard Oil president John Archbold, built large estates in the area in the early twentieth century. Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is set in Tarrytown. Sunnyside, Irving’s home, the Gothic-styled Lyndhurst mansion and the more than 120-year-old Tarrytown Music Hall remain popular destinations for both natives and visitors.

Social Security disability benefits provide vital financial assistance to persons who are unable to work for one year or more due to physical or mental impairment. An individual seeking benefits must file a claim with the SSA, beginning a claim process that is often long and complicated. Unfortunately, the SSA initially denies roughly 65 percent of claims, including many filed by people who are eligible for benefits. A person whose claim is denied can appeal the decision, requesting a hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge.

At many disability advocates’ offices, a “claimant representative,” not an attorney, handles Social Security claims and appeals. In some practices, a client won’t see an attorney until the day of the hearing, if at all. At Hermann Law Group, however, our disability attorneys will represent you through the claims process from start to finish. We will explain the complex filing and hearing process, complete and submit detailed claim forms on your behalf and follow up to ensure that the SSA has all necessary information.

We’ll also represent you on appeal, if necessary, drawing on our extensive experience to vigorously advocate your claim. We’re not only New York disability lawyers; we’re also skilled litigators. As such, we understand what the SSA and reviewing judges are looking for and how to present your claim in the strongest possible manner. We are successful in over 90% of all claims we handle, often winning without the need for a hearing. 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.
