Disability case
I hired Nicholas Romer to help me file for disability. The entire process took a long time but, with his help everything went smooth. He is a kind and easy-going person to work with. He showed compassion for my situation and, I am thankful for all the work he put into my case. I would highly recommend him.

I had an excellent experience working with Nicholas Romer on my disability case. In addition to being very straightforward and honest regarding my case he was easy to get in touch with by phone call and/or returning my call in a timely fashion. He was very kind, encouraging and patient with my questions. The outcome of my case was approval and I appreciate his work.

Taking care of business.
Nick renewed our trust in attorneys he worked hard on the two cases he took care of for us. Nick kept us informed about what was going on with our cases he was always always returned our calls when we had questions. Nick really went the extra mile for us we would recommend him to anybody who want a lawyer they can trust. One of the best things about working with Nick was he is located in Grand Rapids Mi so you can go see him if you need too. Nick is a great person and a great lawyer. Thank for everything Nick.

Disability Application
Mr. Romer did an excellent job guiding me through this process and achieving a positive outcome in a matter of months, and without the necessity of a formal hearing. He was professional yet personal, quick to respond to phone or email requests, and moved my case along as swiftly as possible. Hiring Mr. Romer was a great decision and I would strongly recommend his services.

Social Security Disability Claim
We met with our attorney after we lost our first Appel for disability benefits. We explained our case and why we felt we were entitled to benefits. He said if he didn't feel we had a case we would stop. After reviewing our information we processed. He helped me to understand what the process would be, and what may or may not happen. With his help we won our case.
