Our family hired Cheryl to take on our brother's social security disability appeal. Cheryl and her staff informed us from day one what to expect from her and what she expected from us. She stuck to the facts and let us know of positive points and weaknesses in the case. A few months before the hearing she informed us that she was concerned about winning this case and that it was on the weak side due to the absence of some medical information, but she had and would do anything possible to get a positive outcome for our brother. She believed in our brother and that he needed these benefits to live out his life. He spent most of his life paying into the system. She won the case. Our family has been working on this for our brother for almost 3 years and Cheryl was successful in finally getting him the security he needs to live the remainder of his life. She is the most focused and tenacious individual I know and has a feisty side that is definitely needed for this type of case. Thanks to Cheryl Coon and her firm for their continued support and professionalism.
I'm so thankful i was referred to Cheryl to represent me. Her hard work and expertise resulted in the best possible outcome. Her high ethical standards are commendable and so appreciated! Thank you Cheryl for always treating me with respect and compassion!
Attorney Cheryl Coon successfully (!) represented me in my Social Security Disability case in a most expert, unhurried, thorough, timely and kind/ courteous manner .
She brought her many years of experience, and her quite evident expertise in this Legal specialty efficiently to bear in managing my complex, challenging, & rather unique case .
Attorney Coon patiently listened to and understood me, and studied/ analyzed all of the very extensive documentation related to my case .
She was always patient, clear and complete in her discussions with me, and in the counseling/ advice that she gave to me .
I feel that her fee was very reasonable for her expertise & for the time ( which she perhaps underestimated a bit , & certainly did not at all overestimate ) which she devoted to my case ( which I sometimes requested on a rather urgent basis ! ).
I most especially appreciated Attorney Coon's commendable flexibility and skills in accommodating my personal ideas and concerns reference my case, by expertly 'dovetailing' their representation into her superb final presentation on my behalf !
Cheryl F. Coon provided noteworthy representation in dealing with the Social Security Disability process. She had an extraordinary amount of material to examine in my case and kept me informed as the process proceeded. I would and have recommended her to anyone looking for representation when dealing with the Social Security Administration. My case was extremely complicated and her professionalism, knowledge, and experience made the difference.
By the end of the initial phone conversation I had with Cheryl Coon regarding the specifics of my SSD case, I knew she would be a superb advocate for me and would do everything in her power to obtain a positive--and expeditious--outcome in my SSD case. I could tell she was not only highly knowledgeable regarding all aspects of "Social Security World" and its complexities, but she already had formulated a comprehensive, well thought out 'game plan' for how she intended to proceed based on the specifics of my case, including my DLI, time of onset of symptoms and abnormal labs, nature and date of official diagnosis, anticipated life expectancy, and so forth.
From the day that Cheryl agreed to take on my case and represent me until the day a decision was made regarding the claim, I was confident that I had the best representation possible. Cheryl demonstrated high ethical standards and the level of dedication and commitment she brought to my case was remarkable and could not have been exceeded. Cheryl's perseverance, coupled with her wealth of expertise and ability to present key issues and evidence to SSA in a clear, persuasive, and cogent manner, resulted in a favorable decision, for which I am very grateful.
In addition to everything she did for me on a professional level, and for keeping me apprised of the status of my case and quickly responding to any questions I had throughout the process, Cheryl always related to me in a caring, compassionate, and respectful manner, which powerfully conveyed to me that she fully grasped and was sensitive to the human, personal dimension of my situation as well as the legal aspects of the case itself. Cheryl was not only adept at determining how best to approach my case strategically from a legal vantage point, but she never lost sight of the fact that I was an individual who was living with a challenging diagnosis, which also meant a great deal to me.
In summary, Cheryl Coon is a consummate professional who goes above and beyond in pursuing cases she believes have merit and I recommend her wholeheartedly. She's deserving of a six-star rating on a five-star scale!
Cheryl Coon worked hard to win my case, a case that other lawyers told me could not be won. Her legal assistant was knowledgeable and responsive and above all, courteous to me. But it was Cheryl who made the difference -- her skill in persuading my doctor to write a letter and her advocacy with the SSA lawyers really made the difference.
