Nora Staum was recommended to me by a friend who won his disability case using her as his lawyer. Prior to leaving my job and applying for disability I had a free consultation with Nora who after evaluating my case thought I had a good chance of winning my application for disability which gave me the confidence to leave my job. After leaving my job, applying for disability and being refused twice I hired Nora to represent me when my case came before a disability judge. During the year prior to my case finally being heard before a disability judge Nora gave me assurance which I badly needed, advised me correctly to refuse a video hearing and to get a psychological evaluation which turned out essential in winning my case. After waiting almost 3 years to have my case heard in court I wouldn't have felt comfortable not having an experienced disabiliity lawyer such as Nora representing me. There was too much at stake. With Nora at my side during the disability hearing I felt more confidant in presenting my case to the judge. Nora helped to prepare me for my hearing, told me what to expect and filed all the necessary paper work. Her office personel answered any questions I had. I'm convinced I wouldn't have won my application for disability without Nora Staum representing me in court. I highly recommend her.

My wife developed Dementia in 12/11 after losing her job on 7/11. We applied for disability SS and was turned down twice. We applied for a hearing date with a judge. However, we had no clue what to do to obtain evidence to support our case. We found Nora in the yellow pages and called the same day. We liked what she told us so we hired her. Nora and her legal asst. Rhonda were wonderful to work with. We did everything they asked us to do without hesitation and trusted Nora 100%. In june, 2015 Nora was able to get an "on the record" favorable decision from the judge and because of that we didn't have to wait for a hearing that would have happened at the end of this year. We got a lump sum for back disability SS and my wife's monthly SS went up almost $500. We went through 4 years of hell financially & emotionally and now, thanks to Nora & Rhonda we have a new lease on life. We highly recommend Nora for any disability case you need help with. She did everything she promised and won our case through all her saavy experience & knowledge of Disability SS. As far as we're concerned there is no rating high enough to give Nora! She was super. We are so grateful that we found this wonderful, caring Attorney & her assistant Rhonda. Thak you for everything. Sue & Dan

I started the process in January 2014. I had to wait about a year, but I got approved and that's all that matters.
Thank you Selene and Miss Nora.

Nora has handled three disability cases in our family and was successul as promised on all three. Each individual was told at the beginning that she only takes cases that are sure to be favorable. I think her experience and knowledge give her the ability to assess a case up front.
Nora's staff were easy to contact. The first assistant we dealt with was not responsive to my expectations so when I informed Nora she immediately replaced her with Dianne who was responsive, informative, and proactive with the case as it dragged through the SSD process.
We've known Nora for about 10 years and can say that her office organization has always been impressive.
My wife an I give Nora the highest praise and go out of our way to recommend her if we see an opportunity..

After I was turned down twice for disability, I called the law offices of Staum & Ostfeld and in less time then I could imagine, attorney Nora Staum had got me my approval for SSI and SSD. They are professional, reliable and dependable. They were also quick to return all my calls and always kept me well informed on everything that was going on with my case. They walked me through everything step by step and handled everything for me very professionally. There was absolutely no stress on my part. I would highly recommend Staum & Ostfeld to represent anyone in any matter. I would like to personally thank them for all they have done for me. With thanks and the most highest gratitude.
Sign Most satisfied client.
