Firm Overview

I am a local Chicago-West suburban Social Security disability lawyer. For the past 17 years I have concentrated my practice in Social Security Disability law. In that time I have helped several thousand people secure Social Security disability benefits. My clients have been children, adults, veterans and railroad workers. "If you are suffering from an illness or injury and you cannot work you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits. Social Security disability benefits can provide both a monthly income and health care". "Individuals with serious medical conditions may qualify for expedited assistance if they are afflicted by any one of approximately 200 conditions that the Social Security administration has set aside as either "Compassionate Allowances" (CAL), "Terminal Illness" (TERI), or "Quick Disability Determination" (QDD). About 3% of applicants will qualify under one of these programs. The majority of cases will be subject to the Social Security Administration's "5-step analysis" which will apply SSA's "Listing of Impairments" Adult and Child and the "Grid Rules ".

Andrew Barone

The Law Offices of Andrew A. Barone, LLC

Andy has represented thousands of adults and children in front of the Social Security Administration. He grew up in Berwyn, Il. and graduated from Morton West High School. He worked his way through school, attending college locally at the University of Illinois at Chicago, working as a carpenter (United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, Local 10).

During his time as a carpenter, Andy came to realize how quickly health and good fortune could be lost when one suffers a work ending injury or illness. This realization prompted him to pursue his long time dream of becoming a lawyer. He went to law school at Touro College on New York's Long Island, graduating in the year 2000. And, later, it was the encouragement of his uncle, who served as an Administrative Law Judge for the Social Security Administration, that convinced him that the practice of disability law was a field where he could put his particular experience and training to good use.

In 2017, Andy formed the Law Office of Andrew A. Barone, LLC. , located in North Riverside, Illinois. The Law Office of Andrew A. Barone , LLC is a practice concentrated in Social Security disability matters that proudly serves Chicagoland's disabled community.
