When my wife was injured in an automobile accident caused by a distracted driver, she lost her health, eventually her career and became disabled. We dealt with a lot of attorneys over the nearly eight year odyssey that would follow with the auto insurance law suit and employment discrimination determination.
When it came time to engage a Social Security Disability specialist, we searched carefully and chose Attorney Gordon Gates. Gordon truly took our case to heart and fought for us with tenacity. He would not give up. The SSA hearing appeared to go very poorly due to my wife's disclosed usage of medical cannabis for her PTSD and pain relief. Legal by our state laws but a schedule 1 drug in the eyes of the federal Judge. Gordon was able to engineer a legal solution that satisfied both the Judge and the SSA and win a fully favorable decision. Gordon's chosen specialty, excellent character and his experience paid off. His service to us was both personal and professional.
Don't get lost in the large firms where you may never even see or consult with an attorney. The fee structure is the same everywhere. Why not have your case previewed and then accepted by someone who gets the results that you desire and doesn't just go through the motions. Gordon Gates was the perfect ending to a nightmare that was thrust upon us and we highly recommend his services to others in need.
I have never needed a lawyer for anything. However, if I ever needed one, I sure made the right choice here. Something about his honest website and talking to him on the phone i didn't think you could trust a lawyer. You can here. Getting my benefits was a God send & Gordon and his staff made that happen effortlessly...:-)
I retained Attorney Gordon Gates in 2012 to help me win social security disability benefits for a chronic health condition. He was extremely knowledgeable about the legal case requirements, he knew just how to proceed, and he reviewed over 400 pages of my medical documents in support of my disability case. Although his office in is Maine, he can represent clients in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts because social security involves federal court. My case was unusual and complicated but because of Atty Gates, it all worked out and now I finally have the justice I deserve.
I highly recommend The Law Office of Gordon Gates to anyone needing representation for a disability claim. Attorney Gates and his staff are professional, courteous, and diligent. The Law Office of Gordon Gates took my case after I was denied SSDI. The helpful staff filed all the complicated paperwork, and always had someone there who could answer my questions. I could call-in or walk-in and they would see me. Attorney Gates told me what to expect before we went to court, and also after court. Attorney Gates office settled my case quicker than I expected, and gave me HOPE from the minute they took my case. Words would never be able to express my gratitude to Attorney Gates and his staff.
Mr Gates helped me to win my difficult social security disability case. He was easy to work with, very knowledgeable and he helped me win where others might have failed.

GOD BLESS YOU GORDON & LAURA FOR SAVING ME....YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY SUPER HERO !!!! Anyone who has a case worth fighting for THIS MAN GETS THE JOB DONE !!!!!!
I worked hard for 30 years in the trades and when I failed my first employment exam due to my medical problems I was just taken back by it all.I filed for disability myself and was declined. it that point I knew I needed help to handle my appeal. for 30 years I paid into the system and when I needed it most it wasnt there for me. gordon did an excellent job representing me providing all the facts that won my case..
I had a fantastic experience with the Law Offices of Gordon Gates. Always received a fast responses to every email I sent and when ever I called. Found his website (www.socialsecuritydisabilitylawyer.us/) to be very informative. I became a client April 2009 when I received my first denial for benefits. He made my appeal which was subsequently denied November 2009. He made the appeal for a Administrative hearing December 2009. When I finally received my hearing date (November 2010) I met with Mr. Gates and an associate, Collette Cushing where we went over my case and how to say my story to the Administrative Law Judge a couple weeks before my hearing. I met Ms. Cushing at the Hearing office the day of my hearing and had my hearing. It was nerve wrecking but it went really great for me. I received a full disability decision. Thank you Mr. Gates and Ms. Cushing.
