Thank you for considering me to serve as your lawyer. Over the past 25 years, I have represented many honest, hard-working people during difficult times - either by filing bankruptcy cases or by pursuing Social Security disability benefits. More recently I have added student loan debt settlement and restructuring to my practice. I never charge for phone or email consultations and I encourage you to visit my websites and blogs for more information about Social Security disability, student loan debt settlement, or about bankruptcy and to learn more about me as well.

An attorney that knows his stuff
During the 2 and a half years of going through the disability approval madness Mr. Ginsberg and his assistants worked with me each step of the way. I couldn't imagine trying to do this myself. Many thanks for helping me get a fully favorable decision.

The only Social Security Disability Lawyer you will need!
Knowledge, Professionalism, Integrity, Excellent Client Service and 27 years in Business is how I fell about Jonathan Ginsberg Law. I contacted Jonathan to evaluate my disability case to determine if it qualified for Social Security Disability. Jonathan agreed to represent me and move forward and apply for benefits. Jonathan and his team helped me go through the entire process and receive a favorable decision. This process can take a lot of time and you need to be willing to do your part of what social security disability ask from you in a timely manor. If you are considering a lawyer to represent you in a social security disability case. I highly recommend you contact Ginsberg Law and see if your case qualifies for them to represent you!

Social Security Disability expertise and good, kind, professional people
After two years working with Jonathan and his staff, I received a favorable decision from a social security judge regarding my disability. I found Jonathan through extremely helpful online videos that he created to help people understand the Social Security disability process. I live in Michigan and Jonathan's practice is in Atlanta, GA, so I was a little concerned about him handling the case over a long distance. I spoke to some Michigan-based attorneys about my case, but none of them gave me the level of confidence that Jonathan did. I wound up selecting Jonathan because: 1.) I was comfortable with his apparent experience and expertise; 2.) He provided me with so much free information through his online videos; and 3.) He was willing to take my case, without being paid by me. Jonathan and his staff were very helpful throughout the process. After our initial meeting, I dealt mostly with his friendly and informative staff, who kept me notified of upcoming deadlines. The practice has secure online storage of case communication, so I could always keep track of what was happening with the case and ensure that they had every record that they needed. I wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan Ginsberg and his practice to anyone in the USA who needs help with a Social Security Disability claim.

Excellence, professionalism and teamwork produce positive results!
Counsel Ginsberg and his entire staff worked diligently together to obtain positive results with Social Security approving my disability claim after I had appealed it unsuccessfully. I was well informed throughout the process, their educational videos are excellent and they produced confidence in me that their professionalism and expertise would accomplish the goal. THANK YOU for a job well done.

Highest Recommendation
When I first contacted Jonathan Ginsberg of Ginsberg Law, my SSDI claim was on life support. I had received an initial rejection letter and foolishly missed the deadline to appeal. Somehow, Jonathan got my claim back on track. I was finally approved after a hearing with a judge, which is where Jonathan's brilliance truly shone through. He clearly understood a deeply complex medical issue and explained it better than I, the patient, could. In sum, I simply can't recommend Jonathan Ginsberg highly enough.

Jonathan and his team are amazing! Both Jonathan and Ms. Jen assisted my father with his SSDI claim recently and were absolutely wonderful to work with.

The best SSI attorney ever!
When I first consulted with Mr. Ginsberg I was in a very low place in my life. I was used to taking care of myself and my family, then all of a sudden I couldn't do that any more. I was depressed and in constant pain. Mr. Ginsberg listed and seemed to care not only about my case but about me as well. He was very clear about how it all worked and made sure I understood everything. When we went to court he fought hard for me. He contacted me after court and assured me that it went well. After a couple of weeks he emailed me to tell me we had won my case. I felt so much relief wash over me and this huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I would definitely recommend everyone to give his office a call if they need an SSI attorney! The best part is he is in GA. and I am in Illinois and I never had to leave my house.

I WON!
I can’t say enough about my experience at Ginsberg Law Office. I had recently been denied by SS…twice. I decided at the last minute to hire an attorney and am so glad I did. Jonathan Ginsberg and his associates Jen and Paola worked very hard on my case gathering information, always keeping in close contact if they needed something from me. Prior to my hearing I was well educated on what to expect that day and felt very comfortable going into the online hearing. I never felt left out, or hung up to dry. I always felt that I had someone in my corner. Having never hired an attorney before of course I was skeptical but again I’m so very happy I did. Of course the outcome was positive as I won my case. But I highly doubt I could have done it on my own. Thank you to everyone at Ginsberg Law Office.

Very hard working law firm
I would highly recommend Attorney Ginsberg and his dedicated staff. My particular case was not an easy one, and i hired his firm a very short time before my hearing. Jonathan’s staff worked diligently to obtain records, and keep in communication with me at least weekly. If I sent an email, it was answered very quickly. I liked that there was a portal where I could upload documents and records. I liked that I didn’t have to be from Georgia to hire him. Attorney Ginsberg was so helpful in helping me get through my hearing. I highly recommend this firm.

Top Notch Attorney!
Mr. Jonathan Ginsberg is at the top of his game. He is professional, organized, open to communication, and knows his area of speciality very well. He helped my niece win her disability after a nightmare dealing with her rep. He got the right paperwork together and brought the case together and was successful. Highly recommend this lawyer if you want to win.

The BEST SSDI attorney EVER!
Jonathan and his team at Ginsberg Law Office are AMAZING. Kind, incredibly knowledgeable, and very professional. Jonathan has been doing this for a very long time. He and his staff have been such a lifeline for me. I would not have been able to put my case together confidently alone. No way. Knowing that they were always doing what needed to be done in the background was a great comfort to me. Jonathan is a very sincere man. You can trust him. He did a beautiful job at my hearing. I was approved DURING the hearing! I am so grateful and relieved. My winning is due to Jonathan. He won my case for me. It was a great weight off my mind knowing he was always there. Social Security Disability is a very complex piece of the law system. You need someone to represent you. You need Jonathan Ginsberg!

Best SSDI LAWYER!!
Mr Ginsberg and his staff helped me through my SSDI process. They knew exactly what records and documents were needed to present at my hearing. Mr Ginsberg and his staff always kept me updated of what was going on and would respond quickly by email to any questions or concerns I had. Mr Ginsberg prepared me for my hearing and knew exactly what evidence to present, as well as what questions to ask to both myself and the vocational expert. Due to this, Mr Ginsberg and his staff were able to get a fully favorable decision for me. I am so grateful for Mr Ginsberg and his staff- I cannot thank them enough!!! If you are looking for professional, dedicated and knowledgeable representation through the SSDI process, I would strongly recommend Mr Ginsberg.
