    I endorse this lawyer. Brian is a top notch Social Security Disabilty lawyer, and I regularly rely on his expertise in advising my divorce clients, when SSD issues arise in their cases. When I send clients to Brian to handle their SSD claims, I am confident they will be treated with compassion and respect, and the highest level of competence and professionalism.
