My late husband had hired a different attorney to represent him with social security. He was turned down 2 times. After the 2nd turn down, my husband was given a terminal diagnosis. He contacted his attorney and was told there was nothing they could do but wait for the court date. My husband told them that he would not survive to see a court date. That was in Feb. 2012. My husband passed away in June of 2012. I than searched for an attorney to represent me on my husbands pending appeal for the back pay. Mr. Gonzalez was recommended to me by another attorney. From the beginning he was honest and answered all my questions, including if there was anything that could have been done when my husband got his terminal diagnosis. He took my case even though it meant having to deal with the other attorney( who we dicovered had not ever requested a single document). The bottom line is we went to court and had a favorable outcome. and everytime I had a question I received a timely response. If you need an attorney in the area that he practices, use him. I am confident you will not regret it.
