I have suffered with health issues for over 25 years. I had applied for Social Security Disability on my own, but I was turned down.
I had heard that Attorney Antonio Viera specializes in Social Security Disability law and that his office offered a free consultation, so I scheduled an appointment. It didn't take long to learn that Attorney Viera is a tenacious, intelligent, hard-working lawyer. Because of his dedication and experience, I was awarded Social Security Disability.
I would not hesitate to recommend Tony Viera to anyone in need of a top-notch lawyer.

When I was denied twice Mr.Viera had a 100% trust in my case that we would win in front of the Administrative Judge that he sent me for a third opinion, and the Administrative Judges ruling came back in my favor. I'm grateful to Mr.Viera for helping me get SSDI. He is a wonderful attorney and if I had to do this again I would go back to Mr.Viera. Thank you Mr.Viera.

I would wholeheartedly without reservation recommend Antonio Viera and his staff to anyone who needs assistance with the Social Security system. He has always told us the truth, explained the laws to us and made himself & his staff at our disposal. Calls to his office are always returned within ten minutes or less! This law office treats you as if you are the only clients that matter! Many people were waiting the day of our hearing for disability, but my husband was the only one to get a favorable judgement. I believe that is due to all the hard work Mr. Viera and his paralegal, Vickie had done prior to the court date. Traumatic brain injuries are very difficult to prove. Mr. Viera and his team have a great reputation for getting positive outcomes on difficult cases. My husband and I are extremely happy with everything Attorney Viera and Vickie have done for us. Without them, we would've lost our home! They worked expeditiously and tirelessly on our case. They treated us like family. They represent the best of the best in Florida!

Antonio is fluent in the law, whether Social Security, workers' compensation or personal injury as well as being fluent in Spanish. He is hard working and strives to obtain the best result possible for his clients. I endorse this lawyer.

Tony works hard for those who can no longer work. He is dedicated to obtaining benefits for those hard-working Americans that, through no fault of their own, have suffered from injury or other malady and can no longer dedicate themselves to providing an income to meet they or their families' needs. It is with great pleasure that I endorse an individual who works at such a noble task.
