Offices in New York City and Mahopac, NY


Serving Social Security disability claimants in all five boroughs of New York City and throughout the New York metro area, the Hudson Valley, And Connecticut.  I have been practicing Social Security disability law for over 30 years,  I was privileged to serve as a Social Security administrative law judge for 20 years, hearing and deciding thousands of disability cases of every type.

Since leaving the bench in 1998, I have devoted my practice almost entirely to the representation of applicants for Connecticut and New York Social Security disability and other Social Security benefits, including Supplemental Security Income, before the Social Security Administration and the United States courts.  I represent disability claimants at all stages—whether at application, first appeal, second appeal, or hearing level. A substantial portion of my practice consists of cases referred by attorneys, including many federal court appeals cases. I have developed and taught bar association Social Security continuing legal education classes and a seminar for Legal Aid attorneys on Social Security practices and procedures.

I am a highly dedicated lawyer with many years of experience, and I am trained and prepared to provide you with quality legal representation.  I understand your immediate  goals, and  will continuously  strive, aggressively and responsively, for a positive outcome.  I am a sustaining member of the National Organization of Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), and a member of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.  I am admitted to the New York State Bar and the United States Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York.

With over 30 years of experience, I can help you through the Social Security disability process. If I decide that there is a reasonable basis for your claim, I will walk you through all of the required paperwork, on all the your testimony and procedures, making certain that your impairments and limitations as you experience them are truthfully and effectively presented. It is our goal to  put our clients at ease right from the start, and to make out services cost effective for you.

I will also develop the necessary medical data and opinion, and present the best supported and most persuasive arguments through the administrative law judge level and, if necessary, to the Social Security Appeals Council.

I know what a shock it is to find that a trauma or disease has caused even the most ordinary activities to be extremely difficult or impossible. I will always make my best efforts to personalize your case – that is, to so develop and present your claim as to enable the reviewers and adjudicators to realize both the facts and feelings associated with your individual experience of functional loss, and how this experience has related to your vocational incapacity.

My principal law office is located in Lower Manhattan at 26 Broadway, 17th Floor, New York, New York 10004. However, I travel to meet clients in all areas where I practice.

If you call or Email, I  will be pleased to provide a prompt  consultation, and a carefully considered evaluation of your case, without charge.

In addition, if the Social Security Appeals Council has refused to review the denial of your disability claim, I will also advise you, without charge, on the possible benefits of continuing your appeal to the United States district court. This can result in a court order requiring the payment of disability benefits to you, or a remand requiring further administrative action, and a new chance to obtain a decision in your favor. This can often be accomplished without cost to you.

I wish you well in your efforts to deal with your disabilities.
