    Mr. Gustad provided excellent, thorough and professional handling of the appeal of the SSA's denial of our son's application for SSA disability benefits. He and his staff are all very knowledgable and courteous, keeping us promptly infomed of developments as they occurred. Highly recommend the entire Gustad Law Group to anyone needing assistance or just having any questions about SSA benefits.

    • John-Paul handled my Social Security matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr. Gustad reinstilled my faith in lawyers. He is sincerly commited in going that extra mile for those whom he represents. If I had a question it was always answered and if the answer was not familiar he had no problem doing the research to get me the answer. When I recieved my Social Security decision Mr. Gustad was as excited as I was because he knew the massive difference this would make in both my son and my life. Hire him I promise you will not regret it.

    If you want to be treated with respect, sincerity, and professionalism, J-P Gustad is the lawyer that you need to hire for your case. I needed results in my social security disability case in a timely manner and got them. Go visit his office on Aurora Ave in Seattle, which is conveniently located next to the social security office. He and his staff were always courteous, straight-forward and answered any questions I had. As a Veteran who is currently getting paid my disability benefits, I would 100% recommend him as a lawyer.

    • I recommend John-Paul Gustad.
    • I hired John-Paul more than 3 years ago.
    • John-Paul handled my Social Security matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I had begun to lose faith in our legal system and all lawyers until I met John-Paul Gustad. Mr. Gustad kept me well informed, handled my case and was able to get my disability awarded to me. He was very good about walking me through this intimidating process, was incredibly patient and answered all of my questions, was reachable by phone or by email and always returned calls and emails promptly, and was also able to get my disability back awarded, even though I had screwed up my appeal on my own. When John took over my case, I had no faith I would win--or anytime in the near future would the case be resolved. I was pleasantly surprised at how professionally he handled the case, how knowledgeable he was about the law and process, and how quickly the case was resolved. Mr. Gustad is everything a lawyer SHOULD BE. I would heartily recommend Mr Gustad to anyone fighting for their disability, he is truly a great advocate and very caring about his clients. You would be very glad you did, I sure was.
