Would recommend this attorney to everyone
I was frustrated and confused about all the paperwork involved with filing for disability. She was very helpful with the paperwork and helping me with getting the right information for my appeal. She was helpful with getting me information to find a doctor when I had no insurance. She kept me informed and updated with my case.

Truly a godsend
Very kind woman who took the time to understand my condition and needs and helped me understand much of the system I did not understand. She was/is a godsend.

The help we needed ... WE FOUND!
Very professional. Knowledgeable on all the most recent changes and laws pertaining to the social security case we hired her for. Kindhearted and prompt with all communications with us. We went thru two other attorney's prior to using Samantha. I would urge any of my family or friends to use her for any future case they would have.

Amazing Service
I could not have computer-developed a better attorney! Living out of the country, I had to shop online for a dissability atty. I am sure Samantha has alot of clients but when we were on the phone or together, I never felt rushed or unimportant. Not only were she and her staff helpful & professional but also compassionate to my illnesses. To be honest, I didn't expect that since they do this all the time. The receptionists would even look for Samantha if I got her voice mail. Twice when she was in court, Samantha returned my call @ 7pm!!! I want to give a special thank you to her post-court support person, Sarah. Notwithstanding Samantha got my approval, there were hold ups with SS since I live out of country. Sarah stayed on top of it and kept me posted, by the time my case was settled I had a new best friend. Thank you so very much. May God bless you for the great job and help you provided to me.

Samantha has some very excellent qualities. She is compassionate, detail-oriented, honest and extremely educated in the disability law field. We attempted to handle our daughter’s disability claim on our own and we not successful. We had been told by many people that even with an attorney to plan on fighting this process for years, that we would have more than one court appearance and it would be a long and frustrating battle. Samantha put together all the documentation that was needed and when we went to court it took the judge less than ten minutes to make a determination in our daughter’s favor. He had everything he needed to make an informed decision and there was no long frustrating battle, other than when we tried to do this without Samantha. She was very patient and kind with our adult daughter and took the time to explain things so that we all understood what was taking place. I would and have recommended Samantha to others.

Samantha Ball is #1
Samantha Ball was a very helpful asset to me During a rough time in my life last year. I suffered A stroke and became disabled physically and mentally. I was confused and did not understand the law In regards to my condition. Samantha was very Professional and always kept me informed and Prepared. I applied on my own and was denied, Then hired Samantha, she was a very responsible Representative for me, as she then saw my through Til the end. Which was a success. I felt the weight Of everything involved lift dramatically. I still have many Difficulties, however the social security I paid into For many years can finally help me when I need It most, which happens to ( unfortunately ) be now, At the age of 43... Thank you Samantha for giving Me peace of mind. She comes highly recommended.
