About Kerie

Learn Kerie’s areas of practice.

I have been handling Social Security Disability cases since 1994.  I started my legal career as a Staff Attorney for the Social Security Administration.  I rose through the ranks and became an Adjudication Officer and a Supervisory Staff Attorney.  I left SSA in order to "move to the other side" to represent people who need help with their disability cases.  I've successfully handled thousands of cases, with a win rate of over 99%.  I have a clear understanding of the medical and legal issues involved in these cases.   At my office, you will not just be a number.  I will personally know your name.  I will personally make sure that you and I are both prepared if we have to have a hearing on your case.    I also have handled numerous cases in bankruptcy, workers compensation, personal injury, medical malpractice and small claims.  I maintain a network of highly respected attorneys in every field.

An Expert in SS Disability. A True Professional
Kerie Stone, PC Attorney at Law is extremely professional and knows the SS Disability system very well and how to properly navigate it. The SS Disability claims process is very complicated and something that I felt uncomfortable confronting on my own. Filing for disability is extremely difficult and technical, and if the slightest mistake is made, it could prolong or even result in your case being denied. That is why it is important and beneficial to have legal help in this matter, and Kerie is the best at it. From the start, she knew exactly what records and documents I needed to compile for my case. She would reach out frequently and promptly to advise me of any issues along the way and how she intended to address them. She assisted me through the application process and kept me updated throughout the whole case in preparation for the in- person hearing with the judge at the end of my case. She even advised me that bringing in a vocational expert to testify in my case would provide impartial and expert information that could benefit my case. The testimony that the vocational expert provided definitely worked and had a major impact on the decision of my case. She is extremely knowledgeable, which I am so excited and grateful to say resulted in a positive decision on my behalf. Because of the backup in the SS Disability system, my case took 2 years. Kerie never gave up and was patient, dedicated and focused on a win! In the end, she won, what was a difficult case. I could not have done this without her expertise. I highly recommend her!! Thank you again for your hard work and persistence.

So nice, I felt so comfortable.
I contacted Kerie Stone through her website which was very easy to navigate. I was looking for a consultation on Social Security Disability. She got back to me right away. She made me feel so comfortable and listened to every word I had to say. She was very knowledgeable about the process and gave me some good advice and suggestions free of charge. A family member referred me to her because she had helped them so much and won their case for them. I will be sure to hire her if I need to.

Very satisfied
I had the pleasure of meeting Kerri in July of 2020. When I first met Kerri she was very helpful, caring and knowledgeable in her expertise as Attorney. She is very quick at returning any text/phone call or questions you might have about your case. I personally would highly recommend Kerri as an Attorney for all your SSA concerns. You will be very happy with her experience and expert knowledge. I am grateful I chose her to be on my side.

Extremely knowledgeable Lawyer

Knowledgeable and Experienced. Helpful and patient. Won both my cases.
Kerie Stone is obviously very experienced and really understands the Disability Process. She also understood about my private disability insurance. She was interested in me as a person. She knew exactly what records to ask the doctors for. I only spoke to Kerie Stone and was not pushed around to assistants and less experienced people. I won my Social Security Disability case. I also had private disability insurance and she handled that for me also and it went very smooth. Very highly recommended.

She helped me so much
I just found out that we won my disability hearing. Kerie Stone knew exactly what to do and she took care of everything. I've been sick for such a long time and I knew that it would be difficult to take care of my case by myself. When I saw how much work goes into it I realized that I was in very good hands. The judge had an expert testify at the hearing and Kerie knew exactly how to handle that. Kerie had worked with this judge before and I could tell that he really respects her. He told her that the brief she wrote for my case was excellent and that it would help him in his decision. Then when I got the decision I saw that the judge used a lot of informatiom that Kerie gave him. Kerie told me that I would not win overnight but she was very confident that I had a good case. She just told me that her work for me is not done because she will make sure that I get the right amount of money that SSA owes me. I would probably still be waiting for a decision if I did not hire Kerie.

She was wonderful, knew her stuff and was always honest with me. She explained what would happen in my case and she predicted everything perfectly. It was great to deal directly with the owner of the law firm.

SSDI Attorney | Feb 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I highly recommend Kerie Stone for disability cases. Our professional circles have overlapped for years as we both practice Social Security Disability law. Kerie has been at it longer than me and is professional and extremely knowledgeable. I seek her advice frequently as she has a background working for SSA when I've been on my own and had to learn myself. I owe a lot of my knowledge to her, as she has been a wonderful mentor. She has answered questions for me at all times of day for which I am most appreciative. I would not hesitate to recommend clients to her on the East Coast."
Administrative law Attorney | Dec 06
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I highly endorse this lawyer. I have handled a few thousand disability claims but I only take cases which will come to hearing in the five boroughs of NY City. When a Prospective client calls from Long Island, Kerie is the one. She knows it all, truly. Because she worked for the SSA before opening her office, she knows how the system really works. She knows the things which lawyers like me, who never worked for the agency, don't know. She has given me so many useful pointers over the years and, I don't know how she does it, but she has an uncanny ability to know the right people when you need someone with special gifts in any particular area. She introduced me to people who were on the rise up through the system. She is one of the very few very good lawyers handling what we call "private disability" which means union or company plans. That is a rare skill to have. She is also a wizard in Bankruptcy, I have heard."
