We Can Answer Questions About Social Security Disability

If a patient has questions as to whether they may be eligible for Social Security disability or how the process works, you can just refer them directly to our office. That way you can focus your resources on what you do best, treating patients.

We can answer the multitude of questions they will inevitably have. Because so many of the people applying for disability are already in difficult financial situations, we absolutely never charge a fee unless we win their case.

Consultation is free. There are no legal fees to pay until we recover benefits for you. Call our law offices in Philadelphia, at (215) 464-7200 or contact us online and we will get in touch with you immediately.

They Need Representation

It is a proven fact that an applicant for Social Security disability is far more likely to get benefits if they are represented by an attorney. However, it is critically important to have an attorney who is intimately familiar with this area of the law. But how is Chermol & Fishman unique when compared to some of the other firms that handle Social Security disability cases?
