Social Security Disability Law Firm
"One of the most rewarding aspects of my life is my Social Security disability law practice. Many people come to me, virtually without hope, after they have been paying into the Social Security system for years - only to be rejected by the Government for disability benefits when they become sick or severely injured. Through the protections afforded our citizens by the United States Constitution, which essentially guarantees each Social Security disability applicant the right to a due process hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, our firm has been able to prove that many applicants are entitled to their benefits. "In the nearly twenty-five years that I have been practicing law, I would like to believe that we have made an important difference in the lives of thousands of our nation's people, by winning their cases and thereby providing them with financial benefits, health insurance, and the comfort of a dignified existence. "REMEMBER - IT'S YOUR MONEY!" More information: http://www.mattgreenbaum.com/faqs.asp Matt Greenbaum
