He was very knowledgeable and persistent with my case. He didn't sugar coat anything he told me everything the way it was which is what I wanted to hear. The other good thing about this lawyer is he doesn't say something will or won't happen because each case is different. He gives out multiple methods of contact so if you need to reach him he is reachable. He is very diligent and his staff is on top of getting all the documents needed. I respect him and he puts time into the case. I am very impressed.
Mr. Liner was very straight forward and gave me the best advise he could offer and, in turn, was able to help me get approved for disability when other representatives have not. To this day, even though he, technically, did his job, he still is very helpful in answering my questions. He always gets right back to me and I appreciate that more than he knows!
Michael was a great help to me in obtaining my Social Security Disability benefits. He followed the entire process from start to finish with a favorable outcome.
Mr. Liner handled my hearing for disability. At the hearing, the Judge asked if I would be willing to amend the onset date of my disability, which would have meant I would get thousands of dollars less. Although most attorneys probably would have just said okay to get a favorable decision, this attorney negotiated with the judge so that I got an extra 6 months of benefits included in my lump sum check. I couldn't be happier!
Mr. Liner was my minor daughter's attorney in her SSI case (for mild mental retardation). Because he took the time to write a brief to the judge stating why my daughter should be given social security, she was given her benefit's without even having to go to a hearing like is usually the case.
Michael handled my Social Security Disability hearing. Not only did he win my case, but he really showed the vocational expert who was boss when she said I could do jobs that it was obvious I could not. I would and will recommend Michael to other friends of mine looking for attorneys to help them with Social Security cases.
