Andalman brought a steady and calm approach to resolve a complicated mutli-front matter. He worked effectively with me (the client) and added value from his special experience in disability, and I believe that by following his guidance we have better positioned my legal claims.
I came to Elliott Andalman for assistance with my Federal Disability Retirement and Social Security cases. I had tried to handle these at first on my own with no success and then hired another attorney who was a complete scam and lost my reconsideration (Harris Federal Law Firm based in Kentucky). We had pretty much given up at that point. We were emotionally and financially drained. Then my husband found Andalman & Flynn on the internet. That's when everything changed. We first talked with Mr. Andalman and his WONDERFUL assistant, Zubaidah Haamid, on the phone and the compassion and empathy from both of them were overwhelming. They gave us new hope and strength. They immediately took over my cases and handled everything. Any questions or concerns were answered promptly, thoroughly and with kindness and compassion. We also loved that Zubaidah not only would explain the current step, but also prepared us for the upcoming steps. Elliott and Zubaidah won both of my cases. They made a very difficult process seem simple and never made us feel like a burden. We would STRONGLY RECOMMEND this law firm.
After being denied OPM disability retirement and having a dreadful experience with another firm that charged very little for handling my initial application for disability (I found out the hard way that it's true -- you get what you pay for), I went to see Mr. Andalman for help with my Request for Reconsideration. I found him to be very knowledgeable, ethical, and responsive. Due to the work by Mr. Andalman and his assistant, I was approved for OPM disability upon reconsideration. I'm very grateful for having found his law firm, Andalman & Flynn, and highly recommend them to all who are disabled from work.
I came to Mr. Andalman after a very bad experience with another firm. Mr. Andalman assigned Zubaidah in his office to assist him with my case. They were always available for questions and always showed concern. Based on my dealings with the other firm on the same case, I can tell you that Elliott and Zubaidah are at the top of the list for handling disability cases. Everything happened just as they had extensively explained it to me. They were in contact with the medical professionals that handle and know my health. They ultimately won my Social Security and Federal Disability cases. I am sincerely thankful to have found their firm. They are many miles away, but it made no difference to the outcome of my case. I only wish I had found them sooner.
Mr Andalman handled both my social security and private disability cases with skill and compassion and I finally received benefits in both. I was very sick and felt extremely vulnerable--the process can be very difficult and even humiliating, at a time in your life when you are least well prepared to deal with such things. Elliott understood the toll the process took, was efficient, fair and compassionate. I've worked with him off and on over many years, and I'm grateful I found him.
Elliott Andalman and the people at his firm are the best! I needed a lawyer to help with my Federal Disability Retirement from the Postal Service. I did a lot of research, and called several law firms in and around my area before I settled on Andalman and Flynn. I saw that they have a great winning percentage on the first try at disablity benefits..I had always heard that you were mostly turned down on your first application. Not true!. Andalman and Flynn won my case the first time around, no appeals!
They explained everything up front, told me what to expect, kept me informed. They actually treated me like a person and not just a potential check.
I was being given false information from my employer about what I could and couldn't do during the disability process pertaining to resigning and health benefits coveraage. I called Elliott's office and they showed me when and how to do it the right way. I had a great contact in Andalman and Flynn's office named Zubaidah Haamid. She took care of most of the day to day stuff with me. She is very proffessional, but also very kind, patient and understanding. My family was going through a very rough time and they made it easier.
If you ever need a lawyer for anything, check with Andalman and Flynn first.
