Rosenstein and Howard works on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if we win your case. If we win, our fee is comprised of 25% of your Social Security back pay award, not to exceed $6,000.00.

She previously worked as an attorney/advisor for the Social Security Administration, Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). While at ODAR, Attorney Howard received the Excellence Award for the Outstanding Production of Judicial Decisions. Her detailed knowledge of the inner workings of the Social Security Administration enables her to fight at every turn for the benefits that her clients deserve.

At Rosenstein and Howard, we are big enough to win, but small enough to care. Don't be fooled by TV ads for large, out of state law firms. We are local, and we care. When you phone our office, you will get to talk to an attorney. If Attorney Howard is not available at that moment, she will return your call. Did you know that when you phone a big Social Security law firm as advertised on TV, you will rarely speak directly to an attorney? In fact, you will sometimes not meet your attorney until the day of your court hearing.
At Rosenstein and Howard, you will have an initial, in person consultation with Attorney Howard that will last for well over an hour. Attorney Howard will discuss with you your medical history, and how she plans to win your case. You will have further direct contact with Attorney Howard throughout the appeal process, especially before your court hearing. At that time, Attorney Howard will sit down with you for at least an hour and prepare you for your big day in court.

Given the rise in Social Security claims for disability, and the dwindling trust fund, the system is therefore designed to make it very difficult for an individual to quickly receive benefits.
