Blessing from God
I was injured in the line of duty during my deployment and sustained several life changing injuries. I filed for ss disability prior to being medically discharged. I filed for ss disability myself and was denied. My friends and family encourage me to get an attorney. I was already exhausted from rehabilitation and fighting to keep my job. Mr. Lusk took my case with only days to file an appeal. He seemed pretty confident that I had a good case even though I already feeling let down and discouraged. However, Louis Lusk met with me the day of my hearing and was well prepared with evidence to support my case. I am very grateful and glad that at the last minute I decided to hire him!!!! Thank you Attorney Lusk for accepting and getting my benefits approved!!!!

Good Communication
Mr. Lusk was very helpful in explaining everything to me. Basically his office got all the documents together for court and the judge ruled in my favor right there in the hearing room. He helped me through a very frustrating process.

Glad I Hired Him
I was turned down for disability even though I have congestive heart failure and diabetes. Mr. Lusk took my case and worked with me for almost 2 years. (Social Security takes a long time!) He won my case in court. He had to file two appeals but we finally got to explain to a judge my condition in person. Thank goodness I got back benefits for all the time I waited.

Helped Me Out
Mr. Lusk helped me get my SSI started even though I had been rejected by social security. He did an appeal of my case and ended up getting a decision where they gave me disability. It's not a whole lot of money but the main thing is that I get medicaid now which is what I needed most.

Very Good Lawyer on My Case
I hired Mr. Lusk to help me on my SSI case. His office kept me up to date on what was going on so that was good. Plus he went over my case with me before the court hearing and made me feel not so nervous. I am now getting my disability. I would use him again if needed.

He is a life saver!
I can't say enough about how great he was. His office staff is so sweet and so is Mr. Lusk. When my husband died, I had no idea what I would do. He called me personally and took time to explain everything to me.

He did great job. Hired many others before but got no where. His office staff do great job too. Very happy.

It's a win!
I thought I could do it myself, but found it was much better with a good office handling all the paperwork. He got the benefits that I really needed.

Great Lawyer!
I am young and originally go turned dwn. I hired one attorney but he droped my case saying I would not win. Mr. Lusk took my case. I worked with Jackie in his office and she helped get all the medical records and statements from my doctors that the other lawyer was not able to get. He won case and I am so glad I hired him.

I had hired someone else and he did not do anything. Never heard from his office so I hired Louis Lusk. He followed up with my doctors and won my case

Well worth hiring!!
Was great experience. Girl in his office was friendly and called occasionally over the 19 months to see how I was and update the case. Got full benefits. Well worth hiring him

Mr Lusk he won my case. I did apply 2 other times and they refused me but he won my case. he got them to see I really was disabled. he did save my life. I dont know what I had done if he did not win and don't know what that person who says his office never called cuz they called me all the time making me do stuff to get the case done

Very bad experience.
His paralegal swore until 2 days before my trial we were good to go. I got the call Friday that he was no longer my attorney giving me no time to find another attorney before Monday morning. And I meet another lady at the SS office he did the very same way. I suggest you find someone who you can depend on and it is not Mr. Lusk. He was my attorney on record for two years.

Response from Louis Lusk June 14, 2017
Since I do not know the identity of this reviewer I can only respond that in about 1 % of my cases I feel the need to withdraw my representation due to serious legal or ethical issues.
Posted by anonymous | October 7, 2014
He was my attorney for a year and dropped me without provocations or warning or reason two days before my hearing. I have since heard that he does this often. Now I have to wait even longer. I would not utilize his services if I were you.
Response from Louis Lusk October 21, 2014
In general, I only withdraw from a case for compelling factual, legal or ethical considerations. Of the thousands of clients I have represented I have withdrawn from representation less than 1% of the time. However, I understand the frustration of changing attorneys, and I welcome a phone call from this former client to discuss the specific reasons for the withdrawal and the options for hiring new counsel.
