Kneisler, Schondel and Hubbs


If you become disabled and are unable to work, you might be entitled to file a claim for benefits from the Social Security Administration.

The test for disability in Social Security cases requires that you have a disability which has lasted or is expected to last for a period of twelve (12) months and that you are unable to do any work.

If you file a claim for Social Security Disability benefits and are denied, contact our office without delay. You MUST request "reconsideration" and a hearing before an Administrative Law judge within sixty (60) days from the date of the denial. If you fail to do so, you must start all over again and can loose a period of disability benefits for which you might be qualified for.

Attorney fees for Social Security Appeal cases are also done on a "contingency" fee basis and are 25% OR the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is LESS.

Our Firm

The law firm practices law in the areas of Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury and Social Security Disability in the Northern California city of Santa Rosa. We are Union Privilege, AFL-CIO Panel Attorneys and our friendly staff is bilingual.

We have developed a philosophy over the years, as we have practiced law, which has proven to serve our clients well. It is a simple philosophy yet one which has escaped many professionals who offer their services to the public.

We realize that becoming involved in a legal action can often be a traumatic event for many people and can leave a person worse after the experience than before. As a result we offer this promise to our clients:

"We promise to handle your case to the best of our abilities, without needless delay, and to vigorously protect your rights.

If you need legal advice in any matter, we hope that you will consider our office. Call us at 707-542-5132.

If we can't help you because of your personal needs, we will refer you to other attorneys.

Thank you for considering KNEISLER, SCHONDEL & HUBBS for your legal needs.
