I had to leave a career I loved at a young age to apply for disability due to a long-term chronic illness. I've gone through my entire application process from day one with Chris. To say that I am extremely grateful that I came across his and Kathleen's practice at the beginning of my application process is an understatement.
Chris is a kind, dedicated and professional attorney. I received prompt, knowledgeable and thoughtful answers to any questions and concerns I had through the process. The application process is long and difficult when you are very ill, but I always I felt confident that I had someone looking out for my best interests. Chris worked hard and fought to ensure that I received a favorable decision. Without his knowIedge and expertise behind me, I know my application process would not have gone smoothly.
If you need representation for a disability case I would highly recommend contacting Chris Pashler.

After surgery in 2012, I developed chronic hives - an autoimmune disorder. It soon became impossible to do much of anything and they exacerbated my pre-existing conditions.I spoke with other attorneys and they refused to take my claim. Then I found Chris.
Patient and compassionate, he understood what I was going through and he fought every step of the way to ensure that the ALJs, who heard my case, did as well. Even though my health issues were well documented, it was a difficult case due to the multiple health issues.
Anything that was thrown our way, Chris knew exactly what to do. Above all, he always knew we would win - even when I had my doubts.
It has been a long, frustrating 4 1/2 years, but I received my approval letter today, all thanks to Chris! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help to apply for disability.

In early 2012, my brother, a MENSA genius and well known international consultant, began to miss deadlines at work. He lived alone and worked remotely so his condition remained undiagnosed for many months. Later, he was admitted to ICU for heart failure and some time later when his condition stabilized, he was diagnosed with a watershed infarction stroke. He had retained a national firm to attempt to obtain long-term social security disability benefits since he could no longer work, however, that firm incorrectly filed for a heart failure condition. Worse, the date of the diagnosis made him ineligible for disability benefits. I was supporting him through this entire process.
Upon finding Chris Pashler, we dismissed the previous attorney. Chris took charge, gathering all medical records and obtaining expert opinions that pointed to an earlier onset, one that did qualify my brother for disability benefits.
Further, Chris also worked us through all the testing to prove my brother's diminished capacity to work, and prepared us for the interviews and for the hearing.
Before, during and after the hearing, Chris worked hard to communicate my brother's inability to perform work in each possible employment category to be considered by the judge and his advisers.
When the award was finally made, payments were held up on administrative matters for well over six months. Chris counseled us through the process to collect the award money and never asked us for a dime to cover his out of pocket expenses until the cash was in hand.
My brother's disability award would have never happened without Chris. I highly recommend Chris Pashler as THE disability attorney of choice.
