Disabled Widow Survivor Benefits
Harry Brenner is an Excellent Attorney to say the least, A Caring Attorney that you don't see much these days! He Represented me during the Appeal/ Hearing level for Disabled Widow Benefits. Harry answered / Returned my calls, Emails in a timely fashion. He worked hard to get a multitude of medical records for me from many specialist i've seen. And During my Hearing with ALJ 4/14 /21 , He explained in detailed to Judge my unique case. The Vocational expert commented in my favor with her professional opinion, Judge finally ruled in my favor on 4/29/21. I put myself thru so much worry about the Hearing!! Attorney Harry helped to reassure me & God Worked it out!! Blessing to Attorney Harry Brenner & Family. Affleck & Gordon

Phenomenal SSDI Attorney
Mr. Brenner is a very gifted and talented attorney. I retained Mr. Brenner in October of 2017 when I needed assistance with my SSDI claim. He was extremely attentive to my needs and understanding. Being a former paralegal, I'm used to the daily rigors of handling clients and attorneys. However, I couldn't believe how different Mr. Brenner is from every other attorney! Polite, kind and detail oriented are just a few words to describe him. I would highly recommend Mr. Brenner to anyone that's needing legal counsel in the area of Social Security Disability. He continues to go above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you Harry for everything! Keep up the phenomenal work sir! You are a great attorney!

Personal Injury
I was rear ended by a driver texting and was injured. Harry handled everything with the insurance company and medical facilities. He was professional and got me out of a bad situation with flying colors.

Mr Harry Brenner treated me with the up most respect and courtesy. He kept me informed in every step that he and his staff did. If you can call being disabled a success then I'm a success. I will recommend Mr Harry Brenner and Affleck and Gordon to everyone I know.

SSI Case
Harry took a case that had very minimal paperwork. A case that had been misfiled by the applicant twice and thus denied. The claiment is severly disabled but had created quite a mess of their application. Harry dug through the existing paperwork and was able to locate details the applicant was unaware of, hospital & doctors records. He did a great job and essentially created a new life for this person.

Over and Beyond
Harry Brenner, my attorney, was very thorough and detail oriented. I was very stressed during this time we were working on my disability case and Mr. Brenner was very caring and empathetic, he calmed my fears. I was always kept on track, reminding me of Doctor appointments, anything that was pertinent to my case. I am so glad I chose Harry Brenner. I did not know an attorney would care (and show it) this much. In fact we still stay in touch to see how each of us is doing to this day. I would highly recommend Harry Brenner to be your attorney at Affleck and Gordon!
