I was very grateful to Mr. Ginsberg for the way he handled my social security disability case.
I had been denied social security disability twice but Mr. Ginsberg helped me receive the disability benefits I deserved. Thank you Mr. Ginsberg and staff for all of your hard work.

I've had the privilege of knowing Atlanta bankruptcy attorney Jonathan Ginsberg for many years and have often called on him for advice in filing my Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases here in Iowa. Jonathan keeps abreast of the latest developments in bankruptcy law. He is also amazingly responsive, so if you email Jonathan about your Atlanta bankruptcy you will probably be shocked at how quickly he responds. I would encourage anyone filing bankruptcy in Atlanta to entrust Jonathan with your case.

Mr. Ginsberg, I can't find enough words to express what a great attorney he is. He is honest with you from the start to the end. He is very knowledgeable, if you read his wedsite you will know what I mean. And Ms. Kathy (OMG) is AWESOME! she always talk to you in a respectful manner, no matter what , she offers caring advice. They are the GREATEST!
Thank you so much!

Jonathan has done a great job for us from the moment we met, through the whole process (chapter 7), and until now since our case is almost done. He was very helpful in the process of making informative decisions, and most efficiently following the necessary steps to ensure proper execution. Jonathan used state of the art technology to expedite the process and save our time. When you work with Jonathan it is clear from the start that he is very knowledgeable and comfortable in working within the Georgia legal system. We also noticed that colleagues liked him and gave him respect. We are thankful to Jonathan for taking the time to transform what was to us a traumatic experience, into a streamlined comfortable process.

I went online seeking a social security for disability attorney and Mr. Ginsberg's office responded to my request. His office personnel worked with me even before I felt confident enough to allow him to work with me. I have no regrets with his experience and qualifications. We had a hearing November 14th with success and I highly recommend him to anyone at anytime. The office worked with me even while I was out of town. I am so thankful and proud.
What a Thanksgiving!!!!

I did a lot of searching for an attorney to represent me for my SSDI case. I feel as though I hired the best attorney for the job. Mr. Ginsberg was very impressive. He was straightforward and to the point. His office was very responsive and kept me informed as needed. I would say that Mr. Ginsberg as a superb attorney. He knows what is best for your case and will fight for you.

I was looking on the internet for an attorney to represent me in regard to Social Security Disability and I was impressed with the fact that the website was so user friendly and informative. So, I submitted the initial information to see if they felt they could help me and from that point on the communication flowed. I always received a prompt response when I contacted them.

Mr. Ginsberg made my case easy to go thru and win. I was skepical about hiring an attorney for my Social Security hearing and I am SO glad I did. He always took time to explain things and always treated me with respect. I would not have been able to do this without him. Kathy Presley was also extremely kind. Always had answers for my silly questions and treated me as a friend and not a "client". That was very important to me that both Mr. Ginsberg and Ms. Presley were very kind and understanding. I have since referred friends to him and will continue to refer as well as use him again if needed.

I first met Jonathan Ginsberg through his Internet Website (www.glolaw.com) in mid-2002. For a year-and-a-half, I used the content from Jonathan's websites to obtain some very factual information about various legal issues that concerned me; and I was able to make strategic, legal decisions based on Georgia Law, as it related to those issues. It wasn't until 2004 that I finally met Jonathan face-to-face and retained him to represent me. But, by this time, I was thoroughly "educated" by the comprehensive nature of the information that I had absorbed from his websites, so we were able to "hit-the-ground-running" when it came time to meet and get ready to go to court. Not only did Jonathan's websites answer every question I could think of related to my case and Georgia law; but his websites also saved me untold dollars in legal fees, because I was able to become thoroughly knowledgeable about my case and the process of going to court at my own pace and speed. In my fifteen years on the Internet, I have found no other legal website that gives away so much valuable information with no strings attached.
On several occasions, I’ve had to ask for Jonathan's assistance with other legal issues that have come up since my court case ended. And, on each of those occasions, Jonathan has been quick to offer his assistance in getting the desired result. In my experience, I have never found another attorney so willing to help as Jonathan has been, repeatedly. For all of these reasons, I would recommend Jonathan to anyone needing legal assistance, including my own family members, who have also been very pleased with his legal services. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Jonathan Ginsberg and Ginsberg Law Offices.

Mr. Ginsberg and his staff were excellent to work with on my disability appeal case. From the onset, they were very professional and helped with keeping my appeal moving forward after a long wait. They were responsive, very knowledgeable, honest and pleasant to work with. I was especially impressed and reassured after speaking with Jonathan before my hearing. He knew all the questions I would have beforehand and was very prepared. I am grateful to have had Jonathan Ginsberg representing me and would highly recommend his legal services.

Mr. Ginsberg is a gentle person who doesn't make everything to technical for your to understand. When he speaks to you he makes sure you can understand what is going on and when he talks to the people who need to hear the legal jargon that when he uses it. This was very important to me because I like to understand what is going on and he made that part very simple.
I tend to be impatient but no matter how many times I called it was never as if I was bothering him. He was a real help because I had been turned down initially for my social security not understanding that this was a normal process. He made the whole process so much easier. I was glad that I didn't have to file appeals or deal with the legalities of trying to make it all work when you are sick. It is so frustrating to have to be denied without any type of sympathetic ear.
He was also very straight forward about my personal case as to whether he thought I could even get social security. I enjoyed working with him and have already recommended him to two other people.

Jonathan was an amazing help to me and my wife throughout the bankruptcy process. After I went into the hospital and subsequently lost my job, we were in a really bad position financially. I found Jonathan via a rather lengthy online search and we could not have been more fortunate (and pleased) in the representation we received.
We were ostensibly over the income limit (i.e. a presumption of abuse) for a chapter 7 filing, but our debt was so large that a chapter 11 would never have worked in our case. I thought we were in a hopeless situationâ€¦but Jonathan worked with us and spend an incredible amount of time understanding our situation and examining our debt load. He then researched a large number of court cases to find case law to support inclusion of our student loans. He stuck with us through the entire process â€“ including a meeting with the US Trustee â€“ and weâ€™ve recently heard that they will not be pursuing a motion to dismiss (which is a very good thing). Weâ€™d definitely use Jonathan again (although, given the circumstances, we hope that we never have to)â€¦

Filing for SS disability is a completely overwhelming process, especially when you are sick! I had no idea where to begin. After researching many different sources, I purchased Mr. Ginsberg's Disability Answer Guide. I am so glad that I did. It spells out the process for you, including samples of how to fill things out. This is crucial for me. His website is also a wealth of information on SS disability.
I had some additional questions & emailed Jonathan. He actually called me on the phone and talked me through my concerns for quite a long time. I had already bought the guide; he had nothing to gain from helping me further. We have corresponded by email after that. I would bet that there are many people who have hired lawyers that don't get responses like that.
I am only sorry that I don't live in Atlanta and could have him for my lawyer! If you do live there, hire him and count your blessings! I cannot find any one comparable in my town!

Through over five years of hospital and doctor treatments, dealing with attorneys with workers compensation, and after years of misery, I had the pleasure of working with Mr Ginsberg. For my case of disability he had my history in order that proved a quick success to a favorable decision that very day with Social Security. He is a man that listens to your words. I thank him for understanding of my situation and recommend him to anybody needing a competent attorney. Thank you Mr Ginsberg, I appreciate your help.

Mr Ginsberg has been assisting me through a very difficult situation.
His knowledge of the Law and personable communication of my options made the process much more tolerable than I could have ever expected. His preparation & representation at the creditors hearing was flawless and even though my name is near the end of the alphabet, we were able to move to the top of the list and have our meeting first. A comment was made as to the completeness of our document(S).

Mr. Ginsberg has a professional, top flight law practice in metro Atlanta. After being denied my initial disability claim, I located this firm and glad I did. I was impressed with the responsiveness, care, and strategic planning provided by his team during the appeals process. With multiple medical procedures there were multiple medical setbacks that left me with nothing to look forward too. My disability appeal would have been a long-shot if it wasn't for Mr. Ginsberg ensuring that I was prepared. Prior to my disability hearing, we met to discuss my case. Mr. Ginsberg knew understood the medical challenges that I faced and was fully aware of my case. We discussed the hearing procedures, format, and types of questions to expect. In my opinion, I found Mr. Ginsberg to be trustworthy, dedicated, and honest with respect to my case. As a result, of his legal acumen we prevailed with a successful outcome resulting in a fully favorable decision.
I wold recommend Jonathan Ginsberg for your Social Security disability case.

After my initial application for social security disability was denied, I had the good fortune to find Jonathan Ginsberg. Jonathan Ginsberg and his staff is very knowledgeable, thorough, and gave me hope that my case could move forward on an appeal for reconsideration. His staff helped me with all the forms, kept in contact with me during the waiting period and when the hearing was set, Jonathan prepared and counseled me on what to anticipate at the hearing. I found Jonathan to be very professional, responsive, receptive, and honest. Because of his exceptional expertise, we had a successful hearing. .I highly recommend Jonathan Ginsberg.

Mr. Ginsberg kept me informed and had a well planned strategy. He prepared me for the hearing and that made me feel comfortable. It ended on a good note with a bench decision at the end of the hearing.

John Ginsberg is the most honest attourney that we have ever interfaced with. He walked my husband and I through the entire process regarding his disability case. He was always available when we had questions. He made our experience seemless! Thank you Mr. Ginsberg. I wish that all attourneys could be as honest and proffessional as you.

Applying for Social Security benefits for a loved one can be a complex and overwhelming task, even for a CPA like myself, with all the forms requested and confusing description of "disability". Luckily, I stumbled upon Jonathan Ginsberg's Disability Answer Guide before I started my application.
I was quickly put at ease with the VAST WEALTH of FREE GUIDANCE from an expert attorney specializing in this practice. The process, timelines, tips and pitfalls were clarified, not in legalese, but in easy to understand language and via an outline of actionable steps and form templates.
Reading Ginsberg's words inspired confidence like that given by a success coach to prepare and win approval on the initial filing. For an attorney who is not poised to gain any $ unless the case goes to hearing, I didn't expect any response to my "contact form question" until at least 24-48 hours. But to my amazement and surprise, Mr. Ginsberg exceeded all expectations and responded almost immediately via email. His insight, expertise and concern were evident in his response. I now consider the application less daunting knowing I have a valuable resource to count on who helps others in similar difficult situations.
For these reasons, I highly recommend Jonathan Ginsberg to anyone planning to apply for SSI / SSDI.

You can talk to him and not feel that you are beneath him. His staff is courteous and prompt. He detailed my case, and had all the information required during the hearing. I recommend him very highly.

I have had the good fortune to discover a rare find: Attorney Jonathan C. Ginsberg. I am a professional in another line of work and I have dealt with many attorneys during my career. In the recent past and unbeknownst to Jonathan Ginsberg, I was also a known source of advice for individuals in similar circumstances that we fell into ourselves. From where I stand, Jonathan Ginsberg has earned the title of “honorable.”
The situation: We had a serious deadline looming on our son’s SSA-SSI appeal for reconsideration and Jonathan Ginsberg readily stepped in to assist me with it. He was focused, concerned, responded without delay and compassionate about our issues at hand. Jonathan Ginsberg literally held my hand and line by line we dealt with every daunting issue in our son’s appeal. And he worked until we had it all in hand. That alone says a lot about Jonathan Ginsberg and his commitment to the product and/or service he provides. I was not only more than pleased to find Jonathan’s website to be an educational and actually quite useful location , I also discovered Jonathan himself supporting his product and me, an otherwise overwhelmed, in-the-dark consumer. It is an all in one stop that cannot be found anywhere nowadays.
The application for reconsideration has since been filed. We do not know what the outcome may be. That is another day. But a treasure just as invaluable as having had the assistance of Jonathan Ginsberg in this particular instance is the relief and peace that my family has now. Because of our experience with Jonathan Ginsberg, our son’s file is now completely updated, organized and stands readily available for others to refer to in the event that we are no longer able to.
Had we found Jonathan Ginsberg earlier, we could have saved an indeterminable amount of time, money and stress resolving what he did for my son without further complexity and worries. It would be without hesitation and our great pleasure, if there is anyone who may be considering the services of an attorney in this area, we would recommend highly an attorney with honor, ethics, and reliability: Jonathan Ginsberg. Jonathan Ginsberg has surpassed any of our expectations of an attorney. It just does not get any better than this.

We are so very much appreciative of you, Mr. Ginsberg, and your office staff for taking our disability claim and case. The information you provided on your website was very much informative and helpful. It gave us a great deal of assurance that, hey, maybe we can win this thing. And WE DID! Our first meeting with you and your telling us what we needed to focus on was a big help. Thank you so much.
