All Social Security representation is performed on a contingency fee basis. This means I only earn a legal fee if I am successful in your case.
Social Security Disability is a wonderful practice area that allows lawyers to help people who truly need it. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration routinely denies benefits to deserving applicants. Because these people are disabled, they are especially deserving of quality legal representation.
In addition to a law degree, I hold a Ph.D in philosophy and had a career teaching college courses in the subject. Additionally, before starting my own practice, I was a litigator at one of the largest and most well respected law firms in the country -- Skadden Arps LLP. At that firm, I learned how law is practiced at the very highest level of the profession and I have taken those lessons and applied them in my social security disability practice.
Unlike other law firms, when you call the Law Office of Robert C. Buckley, you will either get me on the phone or you will receive a call back within one business day. I make sure my clients understand what is going on in their case and do my best to explain my legal strategies to them. I believe that every client has the right to know what I am doing to advance their case and I make my best efforts to keep my clients informed.
