Alphonso was not sure why his eyesight began to fail, but after a bout with the flu where he had a high fever, his vision became progressively worse. His doctors were not certain of the cause, but his vision became so blurry that he could no longer drive to work. More importantly, he could no longer see clearly enough to do his job as an accountant at a small manufacturing firm. Concerned, Alphonso’s wife Lacy called Cervoni Disability Law and set up a phone consultation after a friend forwarded Cervoni’s email newsletter to her.

Aaron, 25, broke his leg in three places and shattered his collarbone when he crashed his motorcycle on the freeway. His doctor advised him that he would have to go through several rounds of surgery, with periods of rest and recuperation in between. His doctor projected that it would be at least a year before he could return to his job at a mail delivery company.  A friend advised Aaron that he should apply for Social Security disability benefits since his company’s benefits would not support him during his recovery.  Aaron saw our Twitter posts and called us at Cervoni Disability Law to find out what information he would need to submit when he applied for benefits.

Michael had filed a case for Social Security Disability benefits that was denied once at the Initial Claim level and then again upon Reconsideration. He was suffering with bone cancer, and with the treatments involved, he found himself too sick to work and with depleted medical leave benefits. His brother Joseph urged him to appeal again to the Hearing level to appear before an administrative law judge. Because he had been denied twice, Michael did not believe that he could adequately represent himself before a judge, so he called us at Cervoni Disability Law, PLLC and asked for our help.
