Bruce B. was my SS Disability lawyer. He does not pussy foot around. You might not like what he says, but you can be assured it is the truth. He's quite blunt. He doesn't have a sparkling personality, and he's not going to tell you how wonderful you are. So if that's important to you, look elsewhere. But if you want someone who will tell you exactly how it is, and what you need to do, this is your guy. I appreciated knowing the facts.
I hired him after my disability claim was denied by Social Security even though I was disabled and told by my doctor that I could no longer work. Mental disability is very tricky, so I needed an expert. He knew exactly what to do. In fact, he was so good that the magistrate (judge) called him the day before my hearing to tell him he was awarding me my SSDI. I didn't even have to appear before the magistrate! How good is THAT?!
The paperwork and documentation Bruce had turned in was so complete that the magistrate had no questions about my eligibility.
He is successful. If you want to prevail, do exactly what he tells you to do. He knows what he's doing. MHCD and the local Social Security offices know who he is. He is effective, and that is what I wanted and needed.
