Wappingers Falls is a Dutchess County village straddling the towns of Wappinger and Poughkeepsie just east of the Hudson River. Originally inhabited by Native Americans of the Wappinger tribe, the village was incorporated in 1871 and is now home to more than 5,000 residents. The Wappingers Falls Historic District, which includes Meiser Park as well as residential neighborhoods featuring 19th Century row houses and Victorian-style free standing homes, serves as the village’s center of activity. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides Social Security disability benefits to individuals – as well as their spouses and children – who are unable to work for one year or more due to a physical or mental impairment or a combination of impairments. In order to obtain benefits, a person must file a claim with the SSA. Unfortunately, the SSA initially denies the majority of claims it receives, including many with merit. Yet while a person whose claim is denied can seek reconsideration by the local SSA office and a hearing before an SSA Administrative Law Judge (in our view, the claimant’s best opportunity to prove his or her claim), many people simply fail to take full advantage of the claims process.

At Hermann Law Group, we are skilled litigators – not merely non-attorney “claim representatives” – and we have more than 50 years of combined experience representing clients in disability claims. Our full service law firm focuses solely on disability law. We handle claims from start to finish, including representing clients at administrative hearings as well as in the federal appeals process, if necessary. We pride ourselves on our dedication, caring and expertise in handling each disability claim.

As local disability attorneys, we are known and respected by the staff and decision-makers at all levels of the SSA. We also understand how both SSA staff and judges consider claims, the type of evidence they focus on and how to present a claim in the most compelling possible manner. We are successful in over 90% of all claims we handle each year, 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.
