About Me

I am Chicago Social Security attorney Timothy White, and for over 12 years, I have dedicated my area of practice solely to helping people pursue Social Security benefits. I understand the ins and outs of the Social Security Administration, and I can help you present your case in the most effective manner possible. If your claim was denied, I can also help you appeal the decision.

While my Chicago law firm regularly handles a wide range of Social Security benefits issues, I am also one of few Chicago Social Security Disability attorneys with strong experience and interest in children's disability benefits cases.

 In addition to having an in-depth understanding of Social Security law, I am known and respected by clients and judges alike. I am:

  • Experienced: For more than a decade, I have helped thousands of men, women and children navigate the Social Security system.

  • Available: Clients meet with me personally, not with an assistant or paralegal. I also take the time to communicate with clients during each step of the case.

  • Prepared: I diligently research evidence and carefully prepare each case for the very best chance of success.

  • Quick: My law firm has a good reputation for filing appeals and other paperwork quickly and accurately.

  • Understanding: I truly care about my clients' well-being, and I work hard to help them receive the benefits that they need.
