About Dax

Learn Dax’s areas of practice.

3
Practice areas
  1. Social Security & Disability
    80%
    I assist claimant's of all ages, even children, applying for social security disability income benefits and supplemental security income benefits. I am available to counsel you through this often multi-year long process. If it were easy, then it probably wouldn't be listed as an area of law on here.

    15 years

  2. Administrative law
    15%
    All of the law I practice is Administrative in some way. Avvo does not list as a practice area an area of law for a very important segment of our population....veterans. I assist veterans in claims for compensation and pension benefits due to disability and/or injuries incurred in or aggravated by service.

    15 years

  3. Personal injury
    5%
    I have almost a decades worth of experience handling all types of motor vehicle accident cases.

    17 years

My consultations are always free and you will always speak with me for the consultation, not some intake person who is not even an attorney. I even handle children's cases and disability cessation cases. 

 

Social Security Disability and Veteran's Compensation & Pension claims are so complex and take so long that you should have the counsel of an attorney to guide you through these processes.  I have dedicated my career to helping those injured and disabled in obtaining the benefits they deserve. I have helped hundreds of individuals obtain benefits and it would be my pleasure to help you as well.

Thanks
Worked with Mr. Dax Jordan Lonetto and his team (Ms Carolina) on my VA claims. After years of submitting claims and going to C&P exams, DAX helped me complete/finalize my claims. Wish I’d worked with him and his team sooner. They completely understand the whole process and their experience shows it. As a result, I trusted them on my cases and they helped me step-by-step on the process. I highly recommend them to everyone. Thank you to Dax and his team, Rob

Positive VA Results
I would highly recommend Dax Lonetto to any Veteran needing assistance with their VA disability claim. He was very diligent and thorough and handled my claim to a very satisfactory conclusion. I really appreciate all of the help he gave me because I know without his help I never would have been able to achieve a positive result with the VA.

I recommend attorney Dax Jordan Lonetto because, he did a great job with my SSDI application. My application was denied two times before I hired him and I was very sick. He is very professional, exposed my case frankly with evidence and security. God bless him and his staff that was always available when I called. Finally, HE WON THE CASE.

Successfully Appealed the Claim In Connection With My Fibromyalgia And G.I. Disorders. Dax Lonetto Won For Me!!!! Dax and his team were phenomenal. The S.S initially denied my disability claim for benefits in connection with my fibromyalgia and G.I. disorders. Dax handled everything for me. He filed my appeal, scheduled an appointment with the court, and after a wait of about a year and 2 months, the S.S. approved my claim without me having to go to the court. I would highly recommend Dax as your attorney for any disability claims. He is compassionate and caring – God bless you and your family, always. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all you've done.

Veteran Review
I want to take this opportunity to thank and to recommend the services of Dax J. Lonetto Sr., Esq. to any Veteran that is applying for or having issues with the VA disability award process. I sought Mr. Lonetto’s assistance after my justifiable claim was denied by the VA. Through Mr. Lonetto’s recommendations, I obtained supporting statements from my VA physician, plus a non-VA medical expert in the field. Both were in agreement with my claim and Mr. Lonetto submitted the new supporting documentation. The VA again denied my claim. Dax then appealed and represented me for a new, or fresh look (de novo), by a higher level VA representative. My claim was approved! Granted, this process took many months for the VA to accomplish, but because of this attorney’s expertise, I was successful. If you have a valid claim, I can think of no one else to better serve you and to recommend a course of action, plus provide faithful representation than Dax J. Lonetto Sr.

Successfully appealed VA Service Connected Sleep Apnea claim denial.
Dax and his team were phenomenal. The VA had denied my disability claim for Service Connected Sleep Apnea. Dax handled everything for me. All of our correspondence was handled through email and phone, so I never had to travel up to the lawyer's office. He filed my appeal, scheduled an appointment with a civilian doctor, and after about a 12 month wait, the VA approved my claim and I received the increased VA disability rating, plus the back pay from the date I originally filed my claim. I would highly recommend Dax for any VA disability claims.

Dax Lonetto Won For Me!
I wish to advise all veterans that if you have been turned down by the VA for disability, you should contact Dax Lonetto. The VA denied my disability in 2015. I contacted Mr. Lonetto and for the next four years he battled the VA on my behalf. After denial after denial, he sent it to a higher review board. The review board then awarded my disability, and I received back pay for over four years. This would NEVER have happened without the hard work of Dax Lonetto. We lost battle after battle but he won the war for me! Give him a call...

Professional, knowledgeable, highly recommended.
I retained Attorney Dax Lonetto to handle my disability claim and file my appeal after my initial denial. He, and his staff, are easy to get in touch with, very knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to answer any questions. He is down to earth, detail oriented, very organized and extremely professional. Ultimately, I had to attend a hearing, and his legal knowledge and familiarity of my records helped me prove my disability to the judge, and my claim was approved. I highly recommend Attorney Lonetto for your disability claim needs.

VA Appeals and Claims Resolved Successfully
Dax worked diligently for 4 years to successfully get all of our Appeals and Claims to the VA from my son's injuries in Iraq accepted and resolved. He is extremely competent and always kept us informed as to what to do, when to do it and what not to do. His office is great to work with. Really appreciate him and highly recommend Dax for VA Appeal and Claim work!

VA Benefits Approved
I am very thankful to Attorney Dax Lonetto for his assistance navigating through the tedious VA system. After 3 years of fighting for my benefits on my own, I reached out to him and got the results I was looking for and deserve. Thanks, Dax!

Best attorney ever
Mr. Dax Lonetto has helped my family for years. He was the only one that accepted our case after dozens turned us down. I swear that I owe this man my life. I can count on him and his staff to be there for us. Rather it be a simple question or a request for assistance. I brag all the time on how well he is. My friends and family know who I turn to. My son needed assistance for therapists and doctors and other needs and Mr. Lonetto didn't hesitate to help. I told him that many have turned us down and he told me I will fight on your son's behalf. These words meant so much to me. We were granted benefits and I thank this man every day. He is a name in my house we will never forget
