I totally recommend Luis Gracia for social security disability claims
Since 2007 I've suffered from horrible back pain. Finally in 2009 I could not work anymore. I have worked 18 years for the same company and over 25 years in the same type of work. So when I applied for social security I was sure that my claim would be approved. How wrong I was ! A friend of my wife that was also represented by Luis Gracia at Rue & Ziffra told me to call him. After 2 years of trying to get my benefits we went to a heaqring in front of a judge. The judge had a vocational person saying that I could be a cashier or do some other work. By the way, Ive never been a cashier in my life. Attorney Gracia made the vocational lady admit that I could not do the jobs. The judge agreed and I got my benefits. To say that we are happy is an understatement. If anyone needs a social security lawyer in the Volusia county area, I totally recommend Luis Gracia.

Prior Client
I have used Attorney Luis Gracia for several years. Mr., Gracia and his staff are willing to take the time to answer all of your questions. I would highly recommend them if you have any type of personal injury case that you need help with. They will always make you feel as though you are their number 1 priority and make you feel like you are important no matter how big or small your case. Mr. Gracia is very knowledgeable in the area of Social Security Disability Law, therefore if you are considering that type of case, I would without a doubt recommend him for that case.

Great attorney
I used Luis Gracia in a social security disability case and I had heard from friends and relatives that it would take years to get the claim approved and Luis did it in about 8 months. I will always recommend him.
