I was involved in a serious auto accident that caused injuries that made it impossible to do my former work as an assistant cook. This was very difficult for me as I was always a hard worker, I loved my job and I needed the income to support my family.
I had known Mr. Herman who had helped me with another matter over 20 years ago. I was very happy to hear that he now concentrates on Social Security disability cases as I knew I would be in good hands. He explained to me that Social Security denied my case because they thought I would be able to go back to work within 1 year of my car accident.
He explained that we should definitely appeal since based on his knowledge and experience, Social Security was mistaken. I had 2 knee operations, had degenerative disc disease and was suffering psychologically. He explained the importance of maintaining regular contact with all my treating doctors and doing all necessary treatments.
He obtained all the latest medical evidence for me which showed that at the time of the hearing, I was still unable to work. I received a large retroactive benefit payment, qualified for Medicare and now received monthly payments which greatly help my economic condition. Mr. Herman helped me through some very difficult times and was very reassuring about the ultimate success of my case. He is not only a good lawyer but a good person.
