Hi my name is many, I am thankful to MR Richard Feingold for helping me with my Social Security
case, which came to a fully favorable decision recently. When I first called him he told me that
he did this kind of work because he liked to help people, he did that for me, he helped me through
the entire process and treated me with respect. To those out there who need to file for Social Security
I highly recommend MR Richard Feingold

Mr. Feingold was very helpful in processing my change in status with SSA from early retirement to disability. I would certainly consider him for any future legal advice.

Being a single mom with twins I had run into some extremely hard times. Mr. Feingold literally saved my life. I thought I would have to relinquish custody of my children and live on the street. Thanks to his help I am back on track and able to survive with my sons. He was a blessing!!

I have been dealing with SSA for the last year or so. Once getting to the point of legal assistance I went to Richard Feingold for help. I was at that the point of not being able to appeal all of the denials for SSI assistance. Not only was he and his team on top of what was required, Richard returned my emails over the week end...a lawyer responding over the week end. Needless to say, his knowledge and ability to present my case to the state earned me SSI status. I cannot thank him enough....I hope those that take the time to read this understand the quality of representation you will receive should you actually put your life in his hands. Thank you Richard and team for making my life so much easier.

After being injured while deployed in Iraq I figured I wouldn't have much trouble receiving social security. I couldn't have been more wrong I was denied. After that I got help from Richard and had no trouble at all, thanks to Richard.

When it seemed nearly impossible to receive the benefits that I had been fighting for, Richard Feigngold stepped in and went beyond what any other lawyer could have ever did! He kept me informed every step of the way and did not stop fighting for me. He helped me to win my case and I am forever grateful for this blessing. IF YOU NEED HELP WITH WINNING ANY CASE RICHARD FEINGOLD IS THE GO TO GUY!!!!

Richard was a very good Lawyer. Social Security Disability gave me all kinds of grief. At times it seemed there was no hope, but Richard kept fighting for me even after several years of being turned down. I did however win the case. He also referred me to a Federal Specialist lawyer who is now fighting for my back-pay.

I was extremely pleased with Mr. Feingold's knowledge and experience in the area of Social Security law. However, what was more important was the kindness and understanding he showed me, while handling my case. He made a difficult situation, much easier to deal with. Also, I received my settlement a lot quicker that I thought I would. So, for those of you you out there that need help with a social security issue, or a disability case. THIS IS THE MAN YOU NEED TO SPEAK WITH!!!

RICHARD FEINGOLD REPRESENTED ME IN MY SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY CLAIM AND I HAVE ONLY POSITIVE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT HIM AND HIS STAFF.
HE WAS NOT ONLY PLEASANT, CONCERNED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE BUT ALSO LET ME KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT ONCE HE FILED MY CLAIM. I LEFT HIS OFFICE FEELING UPBEAT AND POSITIVE ABOUT A DEPRESSING TIME IN MY LIFE. HIS ASSOCIATE RICHARD LUO WAS IN ALMOST CONSTANT CONTACT WITH ME AND ANSWERED ANY QUESTIONS THAT I HAD UNTIL MY DISABILITY CLAIM WAS APPROVED ( THE FIRST TIME).
I HAVE NO PROBLEMS REFFERRING RICHARD FEINGOLD TO ANYONE WHO IS IN NEED OF AN EXCELLENT DISABLITY ATTORNEY.

I first went to Richard Feingold's office in March 2011. Now I am receiving Social Security Disability benefits and last month was awarded $14,111 in retroactive benefits. I am also on Medicare.
My daughter who was taking a class Social Security learned that I could be eligible for disability benefits and found Richard on the internet. She literally dragged me to his office. Richard knew what questions to ask. He helped me through the entire process, which included 2 appeals. He and his staff were understanding, supportive and kept regular contact with me.
This has been a life-changing experience for me. I have been fortunate to have a family that has been giving me a place to live, but now I can look forward to finding my own apartment and living independently, thanks to Richard.

My husband was denied social security disability benefits two years ago. Rich Feingold was recommended to us by a friend. From the beginning, Rich was thorough in gathering his information about the case. He stayed in contact with us throughout and made sure we understood all aspects of the process. Rich understands the law, and in our case, especially in the area of Social Security. What I truly appreciated was the fact that he left no stone unturned! So when we went into the hearing there wasn't anything the judge asked that we couldn't confidently answer. Rich is VERY approachable and has a kind personality that I felt was truly genuine. As a result of his hard work, my husband now receives regular monthly disability social security benefits. Without Richard Feingold as our lawyer this would not have been possible. For these reasons and much more, I would highly recommend him to friends and colleagues who are in need of an excellent attorney.

The past 9 years I have had difficulty sleeping. I usually only get 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night. This past Sunday, I fell asleep at 12pm and didn't wake up until 6:30am. Monday morning. This might sound strange to you, but I can attribute this to Richard Feingold. The reason, he lifted all the pressure off my shoulders. I filed for Social Security Disability in May, 2011. I was given good advice that Mr. Feingold is an excellent Social Security Disability Attorney, and I should hire him. This was an excellent suggestion. I was denied my claim, and Rich came in like a Knight in Shining Armour, and fought with Social Security, and I was finally approved last week, and will receive all back pay since I filed. I owe it all to Rich. He worked countless hours on my case. The reason I would recommend Rich to anyone is he truly cares, and is very sympathetic to his clients. I have dealt with quite a few lawyer over the years. But Rich shines all over them. He is always available to his clients, which impressed me the most. Nearly every time I called him with a question, and i had plenty of them, he would always talk to me. If he was with another client, or out of the office, he would return my calls the same day. Most other attorneys won't call you back for days. He is so knowledgeable about Social Security laws, he always kept in touch with me, and if I didn't phone him, he would call me with an update about my case. He has a wonderful personality, and he talks in jargon that I can understand. This past year has been a hardship on me. I was rapidly approaching homelessness, but thanks to Rich, everything worked out. I am indebted to him for everything that he did for me; I would recommend him to anyone. Richard Feingold was an angel sent from heaven to help me, and he came through in flying colors. Thank you Richard Feingold for everything you had done for me.
