    • I do not recommend Peter Mcguire.
    • I hired Peter 1-3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Social Security matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Unfortunately I believed any lawyer representing disability clients would be doing so because they believed in their clients. After no contact from my attorney himself over one year period of time I realized it was about making money for doing nothing but filing paperwork which probably wasn't even done by him. He was nice when I first met him and then prior to the disability appeal hearing he was short with me, cutting me off, not giving me a chance to ask questions and wasn't as educated in the SSDI process as I expected him to be. Now going through the final stages after being approved I am finding out crucial things related to income I was receiving for some work I was doing that he should have told me that might create problems. Highly advise to avoid this attorney. Reading through the decision by the judge I can see he could have done much more for me because the decision was barely in my favor. Like having more recent medical records. I asked if he had any or needed them and he said no, only if I wanted to make my disability onset begin sooner. After reviewing the decision I can see it would have strengthened my case to have them. Bad advice from him.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Since this review was written anonymously ten months ago I cannot comment on specifics. I would like to respond though by stating that our office prides itself on personal service to all of our clients. Our clients always meet with one of our lawyers (not a screener or paralegal) for their initial consultation and then the lawyer and our staff work closely to handle the case to conclusion. I have been handling these cases successfully for the past 17 years and I am at least glad to hear that we won your case and reached the goal we originally set.
