Social Security Disability
The lawyers at Winter, Chewning and Geary, LLP only represent individuals trying to obtain Social Security Disability and SSI benefits.
Winter, Chewning & Geary, LLP is a three-attorney firm, with offices in Milwaukee, Green Bay and Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Our attorneys and staff help people around Wisconsin at all stages of the disability claim and appeals process. We represent people trying to obtain disability benefits at the initial application level and on appeal at reconsideration at hearings before an Administrative Law Judge. Even if a judge has denied your claim after a hearing, we can represent you before the Appeals Council or in federal district court. We handle claims involving mental and/or physical problems that keep you from working. We also offer representation in children's SSI claims.
How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
The firm used to be a general practice, but we soon found at our most appreciative clients were the disability claimants for whom we helped obtain some level of financial security and medical coverage through the Social Security disability system. Eventually, we decided to focus our entire practice on this area of law. Helping those too sick, injured or in pain to work obtain disability benefits is now all we do.
What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others
Our attorneys are all members of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives and routinely attend conferences held by that organization. Our attorneys have given presentations to other lawyers on handling disability cases the disability and give informative speeches to the general public. We have helped hundreds of individuals obtain disability benefits, at all levels of the administrative process and regularly pursue appeals to federal district court where we think the Social Security Administration has gotten it wrong.
