Great Lawyer, Cared About Me, Won My Case
Brian is great. Last year my family hired him after SSI turned down my disability claim. I met with him publicly with my parents at least 4 times to discuss my options, and he reviewed my paperwork for weeks until he determined that I was wrongly turned down to earn SSD for my autism disability. I’m mildly disabled but can’t cook on my own and can’t EVER afford to live on my own, so he filed a lawsuit against the social security office. We went in front of a judge twice, because my first court appaearance got pushed back for no reason, and I finally stood my ground and reasoned that I have been disabled since 2009 and need more money help than just my part-time job, including that every employer in my town has refused to hire me full time due to my neurological disability, and it’s my right to appeal the refusal for social security disability pay. It took around a month but the judge was completely on my side and decided that I was in full favor of SSD payments. Brian won my case and ever since January of this year, I’ve earned monthly SSD pay to help me live off of plus my part-time job paycheck. Brian really cared about me to fight tooth and nail to win my case. He was extremely respectful and professional, even called me for consultations since my scheduling wouldn’t always allow me to meet in Greensburg to discuss my case with him. He’s definitely a great lawyer and knows what he’s doing. Thank you, Brian, for winning my case, and I would recommend you to anybody who is troubled with social security issues. 5 stars for you.

Pick him. He will work for you and win when the mega firms turn you down because you're not a swoosh.
I was turned down by 2 mega firms here in Pittsburgh. Robert pierce was one of them and I forget the other. I was let down and fed up with disability attorneys and their bs. A friend recommended I go see Brian. I get there and he immediately says it will take time and he's going to start my cases over from scratch to build them. So we did. He guided me through the process and a year or so later we had a hearing. We won. I got my benefits. The big guys will turn you down if you're not a sure thing. I use fedex vs a pedestrian in a crosswalk as example. If your not a case like that for SSDI/SSI, you'll get rejected my the mega firms like Edgar Snyder and Robert pierce. They will abandon you days before your hearing even. I've heard reports of it happening. Brian will not do this. He is super personal and trustworthy. We have a great client attorney relationship and he went over and beyond his call of duty when he could have just told me what the mega firms did and sent me on my way because I was "to much work and not a sure win". Do yourself a favor and retain him for your SSDI/SSI needs. You won't be disappointed. I sincerely promise you that. From the bottom of my heart.
