    I endorse this lawyer. Matthew and I co-presented a Social Security continuing legal education program, and I was extremely impressed with his depth of knowledge of the subject, as well as his ability to clearly communicate a complicated area of law within a very rigid timeframe. I beleive he would handle SOcial Security cases in his area of the country very competently, and I highly recommend him. Linda Ziskin
