At the law offices of Chermol & Fishman in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, we put our experience working inside of the Social Security Administration to work for people in eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
Co-founding partner David Chermol played an important personal role as an attorney for SSA in most of the major disability-related decisions handed down by the Third and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal over the last 10 years. During this time, he also provided training to many of the administrative law judges who decide these cases.

The Basics of What We Do
At the administrative level, our lawyers primarily handle disability benefits claims for people in the Philadelphia metro area, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware — although we represent clients from Florida all the way to California. This work includes helping people to complete and file initial applications as well as representing them in the administrative appeals process.
Our federal appeals practice is nationwide with the majority of clients being referred to us by other disability law firms or non-attorney disability representatives.
Help With the Application Process for SSD and SSI
Even though many Social Security disability (SSD) and supplemental security income (SSI) claims are denied at least once, how you approach the initial application process is still very important. In fact, a poorly written or prepared application can actually hurt your chances for success. By contrast, a well-written, carefully considered application can be the difference in securing a favorable decision right away.
