About me

With more than two decades of experience practicing Bankruptcy law and Social Security law in Buffalo, Paul Pochepan is able to help consumers facing financial hardships and disabled workers and their dependents. He has helped many western New York consumers navigate the bankruptcy system under chapter 7 or chapter 13. He also helps Buffalo-area residents apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or appeal Social Security Administration decisions denying, reducing or revoking benefits.


Mr. Pochepan has a wealth of knowledge regarding the multiple medical impairments afflicting disability claimants and dealing with the medical profession to secure the support necessary in these matters.

  • Donald Edward Kelly

    I am proud to recommend Paul Pochepan as a gentleman and as a lawyer. Paul has demonstrated over his twenty years of practice that he is a “go-to guy” in the prosecution of Social Security and Bankruptcy claims. There is no doubt that the many accolades that have been showered upon Paul are very well deserved. Anyone would be well-served to enter a courtroom with Paul by their side.
