About Chad

Learn Chad’s areas of practice.

Practice area

I was pre-med during undergrad and during my junior year my sister fell ill and passed which caused me to no longer want to practice medicine. I subsequently switched majors to Criminal Justice which then led me to law school, during which I clerked at a disability law firm. I’ve dedicated my practice to this field ever since. What gets me out of bed each day is knowing that I have a chance to help someone who is struggling mightily and very sick to gain much-needed medication and access to medical care, a roof over their head, food on the table, and maybe a few bucks in their pocket at the end of the day. I suppose this is my way of helping to spread some good in the world.

Very kind and diligent
Chad and his assistant Deb took their time with me and kept me up to date on their progress. Their hard work and 700 + pages on my medical and work history so impressed the judge. He ruled in favor of my SSI/SSDI without a hearing. Since I have a social anxiety this was a true blessing. I can never thank Chad enough for his kindness. Now I can focus on getting better.

Mother of an Autistic special needs son. Adult child with Autism.
Chad was so understanding & well educated with Autism and special needs for children, which helped my son & I to feel confident with Chad representing him/us going thru the SSD system & hearing. Chad was equally well educated, thorough, professional through the review of all my son's paperwork from preschool to present day 19 years later. I would definitely recommend Chad Christopher Delesk as well as Paulette Balin whom we also had the pleasure to meet & consult with. We are from the Youngstown Ohio area and Cuyahoga area was close, not a problem at all to get to. I thank Chad for his wonderful patience again with a special needs child and a frustrated mother, family. Our win for my son's disabity would not have been possible without Chad's expertise.

Atty Delesk is fantastic
I was hesitant to hire an attorney to obtain disability because I didn't know how to choose one. I wasn't getting anywhere on my own so took the plunge, did a Google search for a disability attorney, and contacted Atty Delesk's office. The process was long (2 years) but Atty Delesk and his support staff were thorough. As a psychologist, I've spent a lot of my career doing clinical interviews, requesting records, compiling information, and writing reports. I can affirm that Atty Delesk is exceedingly competent in these areas. He also has a fair amount of medical knowledge, which is helpful in his area of law. We hire attorneys to advocate for us and get the job done. However, an added bonus, and much needed in my case, was Atty Delesk's professionalism and kindness. The process, although long, was successful and painless. Thank you, Atty Delesk. You are making a difference in the lives of disabled Americans. You made a difference in mine.
