5.0 stars 11 totalReview Edward Ahlers
A medical provider referred me to Mr. Ahlers. The provider explained that Mr. Ahlers develops a relationship with providers who are part of your care. I found this to be very true. Mr. Ahlers covered every angle to make the best case for my living with epilepsy. He took the time to learn about the complications of medical care required for those who live with epilepsy. During the waiting period he maintained professional communication and updates on the case.
My case was further complicated because a decision was ruled unfavorably while living in another state. After returning to Ohio, I was able to get the proper medical care that allowed me to return to work .
Mr. Ahlers requested that the judge would allow for the 2 year period without work and a nine (9) month extension of benefits since I returned to work.
The judge did allow for the two-year period, but denied the nine month extension. Nevertheless, I highly recommend Mr. Ahlers as an attorney because he is very approachable and makes every effort to tackle a tough disorder such as epilepsy.

Edward successfully represented my interests in a case of suspension of Long Term Disability benefits by a private insurance company. At our first meeting Ed listened intently and took several pages of notes to understand the facts and my concerns. My appeal was by no means a sure thing, but Ed saw the potential for a settlement and agreed to move forward. After that meeting he promptly contacted the insurance company, established a point of contact and worked with them to set dates for the submission of supporting documents. Throughout the process I was kept informed by letter, email and verbal communications. He was always prompt to respond to my queries. Ed was very thorough. To support the appeal, he prepared insightful questionnaires which he asked my doctors to complete. He also employed the services of a vocational expert who completed a vocational assessment and report. I would highly recommend Mr. Edward Ahlers in cases of claims for disability. He is knowledgeable, experienced, professional, thorough and personable. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

My husband had a very complicated disability situation, and many attorneys were not willing to take on his case. Not only did Mr. Ahlers take Darin's case, he consistently exceeded our expectations. Tragically, my husband passed away exactly 3 weeks after he received his favorable disability decision. Mr. Ahlers continued to work with me to ensure that my husband's back settlement was paid to me so that I could cover the costs of his burial. At no time did I ever feel as though we were merely a revenue source for Mr. Ahlers. He even phoned me on Christmas Eve to offer his condolences. He is knowledgeable, personable and tenacious. If you want an attorney willing to go the extra mile in order to see that your needs are met, I would most definitely make Mr. Ahlers your first and only phone call.

In 2012, I answered a TV ad for a firm stating that they specialized in social security disability. They did not. They pulled the bait and switch on me. The firm that I got stuck with refused to meet me. In 2014, six weeks before my court date, they pulled out, leaving me helpless.
I contacted Edward Ahlers, who was highly recommended. Not only did he meet me in person, he was always available to talk to on the telephone. Ed got an extension and helped me get prepared for the hearing. It felt good to have someone who believed in me and that I believed in.
Ed helped me win my case and stayed with me until EVERYTHING was resolved. I feel that I not only had the best lawyer possible, I always gained a new friend. I would not hesitate to recommend him (in fact, I already did). I cannot give enough praise for this man! He was a life saver!

I would highly recommend Mr.Ahlers to my family and friends. I've never encountered a lawyer who was son accessible to me. He is highly educated. Was dedicated to my case for almost two years and stayed in contact and kept me informed the whole way through. Very knowledgeable of social security and the whole process. I would definitely use him again.

What a positive experience! From the first meeting with Mr. Ahlers it was apparent that he is quite knowledgeable in the necessary steps needed to obtain reinstatement of disability through a private insurance company plan. His communication skills, passion for his clients as well as being readily available to answer questions and offer support, keeps him at the top of his profession. He was able to obtain medical records and respond to questions by the insurance company in a very timely manner. Because of his dedication and drive he was able to move this case to a rather quick resolve with reinstatement and full reimbursement of back payments. Should we ever need legal advice again, he will be the attorney we call. We highly recommend him if you are in need of a positive experience with favorable results.

Mr. Ahlers was very concise, realistic in explaining his expecations, responsive and absoutely wonderful in his handling of my disability case. He came to my home for our initial consultation, and always clearly communicated his requirements for the information he needed from me and my physicians. Mr. Ahlers always promptly returned my calls, communicated very professionally and showed great care and concern in regards to my case. He is a pleasure to work with and I will definitely recommend him to anyone I know that may need representation in his field.

I am a former claims representative with the Social Security Administration. I considered representing myself but having known Mr. Ahlers from a Workman's Comp case I consulted him regarding my Social Security case. I decided to retain his services. I am glad I did. He is highly experienced and I found his advice and direction extremely valuable in preparing my case. He is ethical and has earned my trust. I would highly recommend his services.
