Firm Overview

Forbes Disability Group endeavors to provide disabled persons with competent representation so that they can have the best opportunity to obtain Social Security Disability. For people who are sick or hurt, disability benefits may be the only way to obtain income on which to live.

Applicants often give up after they are denied at the first or second level before they ever get to a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. However, it is at the hearing level where many applicants succeed. Our philosophy is "Don't give up! Appeal!" A representative can assist the applicant in gathering and presenting medical and other evidence, and in obtaining witnesses. The proper gathering and presentation of evidence can make the difference between winning and losing.
