The best attorney all-around!
Not only is Mr. Ginsberg very professional and knowledgeable, he is so compassionate and respectable as a person. He generously gave us a lot of extremely valuable advice during our first consultation. He is just exceptionally great in every aspect compared to other attorneys we had before.

Exceptional!
Thankfully I did not give up on securing counsel for my SSDI ALJ hearing. I could not have gotten through the process without Jonathan Ginsberg. I am so grateful he agreed to take my case, despite an abbreviated timeframe and that I live in NJ. Needless to say, his expertise was integral to the ALJ issuing a fully favorable oral bench decision at the conclusion of the hearing. The outcome far exceeded my expectations. With 20/20 hindsight, I realize a stack of objective medical evidence is often not enough; and fully appreciate the need to hire an expert, dedicated lawyer/advocate. Jonathan Ginsberg is the real deal!

Truly Grateful
I was truly grateful to this law firm as they helped me through my disability case from start to finish. I seriously believe that they were critical in getting me approved for SSDI in just over a year, which is very fast for a positive decision from Social Security. After being approved they followed up with emails telling me what to expect next and what all of it means. Very helpful organization… Thanks so much!

GREAT and knowledgeable attorney!
I can’t imagine a SSDI scenario Attorney Ginsberg isn’t knowledgeable in. A TBI case such as ours is nuanced, but he is well versed in medical records AND the law at all stages, and you will feel better educated in both areas of your case yourself with him. I’d HIGHLY recommend him!!!

So Thankful
I thank God I hired Mr. Ginberg's . Let me tell you he is the real deal. I watched some of his video's before knowing I would need to hire him. I had to drop some papers off and man did he look just like the video . That was good for me because that meant he was not a fake. Well I hired him then came covid. Mr Ginsberg was there for me through it all,if there was a problem he checked it out ,fixed it and call me with an update. He is a great attorney and very good at his job. If you need an attorney for your Social Security I highly recommend him. Thanks Mr Ginsberg

The Best in the business!
Jonathan handled my case beautifully. I've been applying for Social Security disability benefits since December of 2016 and was denied twice but Jonathan handled it and everything seemed harmless. The Judge came back and approved the case after only 35 minutes.

SSDI Lawyer
Jonathan Ginsberg and his team was genuinely empathetic to my disabilities and diligent when fighting for me throughout this long and painful ordeal. After multiple Denials they remained confident and encouraging which enabled me to remain positive and optimistic. If you are in the state of Georgia fighting for SSDI or SSI I highly recommend Jonathan Ginsberg.

Best Lawyer Ever!
With the help of Jonathan Ginsberg I was able to win my SSDI case through the initial application. I watched every video he had on YouTube and purchased his book. I corresponded with him through email with any question I had. He responded quickly and really helped me get started. If my case had gone to court I was prepared to hire Mr. Ginsberg and was willing to pay his expenses to come to Chicago. That's how much I believe in this man. I highly recommend buying his book to guide you through most of the forms. If you need an attorney for disability you need THIS guy!

Above and beyond
There are a lot of factors and details that go into each individual disability claim. Mr. Ginsberg separates himself with the rest of them by going over all of those factors and details with you, or in his videos. He will make sure that you are prepared to the fullest. How do i know this? Because unfortunately, I had a previous lawyer who did not go over every detail with me and did not have me fully prepared. Mr. Ginsberg's videos are invaluable! I'm confident that I'll will my next disability case thanks to his videos.

HE WAS DEFINATELY A GODSEND
After 7 years and 1 bad attorney i finally won my case after the appeals counsel returned it to a different ALJ. The new ALJ gave me a fair shot, but i MUST say that had i NOT come accross to J Ginsburg SSDI videos I probably would not have been prepared enough to handle my case. I literally saw 50 videos in a span of 2 weeks and i implemented 100 percent of his advice. And ofcourse it helps to have a strong medical record at my age. But all in all everything that he talks about just makes TOTAL sense. Im not invested in the idea of being on SSDI but its just means to an end and thank God for sending me J Ginsburg.

Outstanding Attorney - Professional and Caring
Jonathan Ginsberg helped us with a Social Security disability claim. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and gave us expert advice. He was instrumental in the successful outcome of our case. I would highly recommend him and in fact he was recommended to us by another attorney who does not specialize in this area of law.

I won, thanks to Mr. Ginsberg!
I hired Mr. Ginsberg after reading reviews and watching his videos on YouTube on his channel. The reviews did not lie! Mr. Ginsberg helped me gather all of the evidence needed to support my case, he and his team walked me step by step through the process of my case and always kept me informed and updated throughout the 2 and a half years that I worked with him. Mr. Ginsberg gave me a sense of confidence that I needed in order to win and I couldn’t have won without him and his team! If you think you have a case, call him today! He will help you win because I did!

A Wealth of information for the layman via the internet!!
I called Mr. Ginsberg's office for a consultation. Unfortunately, I am located a bit to far from his office for him to take on my disability case. He then referred me to another firm Friedman law firm. They are representing me very well and professionally!! I do admire Mr. Ginsberg for the very detailed and informative disability videos he puts on the internet!! I have advised MANY folks who are looking into filing for disability to see Mr. Ginsberg's videos and they would answer many if not all questions a person would ask about Disability or SSI. Not to mention, I think I may just be a wee bit smarter after watching his youtube videos!!! I urge all to watch them. Good job Sir!!!! Thanks a Bunch!!!!

Scared and confused
i was injurded in late 2017, and have been under contract with a huge firm insisting they would win my case each time i was denied. I first saw Mr Ginsburg on the internet and having time on my hands, watched a few of his helpful videos. After doing so i was aware of the reasons behind my denials ,so i decided to contact Mr Ginsberg. (This is where it gets good)...Mr Ginsberg has not been able to take on my case, (yet) but has spoked with me via email himself and helped me with direction and possibilities. I want anuone out there looking for representation to know, if you should be so lucky to have an attorney that responds to you and sees your case as more than a number, well that means everything. Going with a big firm full of attorneys only showed me Im a number written on the top of a file as ive been with this firm over 2 years now and have yet even been assigned an. Attorney. I am currently doing everything i can to have Mr Ginsberg represent me and would feel very fortunate if this would happen for me. Just by emails i felt better about my chances at a favorable outcome because of this mans compassion and knowledge. Before you decide on just any attorney, take it from me, talk to Mr Ginsberg. I would not only direct my friends or acquaintances to this man, but my children and any family members as well if needed. Thank you so very much!
