Excellent Attorney
Marcus is a great young man and excellent attorney. My husband is 53 and I am still working at 49. Well my husband began having medical problems including several heart attacks in the past 2 years. He couldnt work and we were living off my part time wages. I couldnt believe he was denied benefits. We called Sam Bernstein, and eventually Marcus became our attorney. He was upfront, and he was always there to answer our questions. Even our dumb questions. At the hearing we learned that he had written several briefs to the judge and pushed to have the judge make a favorable decision for us. We were so suprised when the hearing only took 4 minutes.
