About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

Hi, my name is Tom Klint. I have been helping people like yourself file for disability benefits for over 30 years. When I was a young lawyer, the firm I was with needed someone to represent their disabled clients in the Social Security field. Because of my life experience, I stepped forward and took over the Social Security department. I transformed it into one of the largest and most respected Social Security Law Firms in the Midwest. In 2010, I began Premier Disability Services, LLC®. This company was started on the principles that have driven me my whole career as a lawyer – “If you care about people and work hard for them, good things will happen.” I know how disabilities affect families and their loved ones. I have personally experienced how Social Security Disability benefits can change a person’s life. It all started when my oldest brother broke his neck playing football and became a quadriplegic when he was 15 years old. The Social Security disability benefits and medical benefits helped my brother get through college, business school, and finally attending law school with me at the University Of Minnesota. That was not all; my youngest sister was born with Downs Syndrome. Again, I have seen how Social Security, Medicare and Disability benefits allowed my sister to live outside the home when she became an adult. Lastly my other oldest brother suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from his service in Vietnam. I assisted him with obtaining Social Security Disability and VA benefits. Without Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare this would not have been possible. My Passion to help people can be found in every team member at Premier Disability Services, LLC®. Every new employee sits down personally with me and I explain my passion to help people. All team members are committed to help all clients, like I was committed to helping my family. We treat everyone like family at Premier Disability Services, LLC®. This is simply the Premier way. If you are looking for a company that truly cares about you, Premier’s the one. Most importantly we understand what you are going through and know how important these benefits are to you and your family. Contact us today to speak to one of our caring team members, or complete a free evaluation.

Excellent Law Firm
From the first consult til my final hearing. I was treated like a person. Everyone I spoke with was always very courteous and patient with me even when I was a crying mess. I’m am very thankful for everything they did for me and helped me to receive my social security in just little over a year from start date. I would highly recommend using this company.

Quick case settlement
Initially I hired a local Atty to assist in getting SSI disability. After 2 appeals, a hearing and 2+ years my case was denied. Within SIX MONTHS Thomas Klint got me approved.

Super Satisfied Client
Mr. Thomas Klimt did a great job on my disability case. He himself or someone on his team were always available to speak with me at anytime. I highly recommend him. He kept me updated throughout the process until everything was taken care of. I have recommended him to several family and friends of mine.

Great working with my team at Midwest Disability
Very professional. I didn't have to worry about a thing. They made the process much easier to go through. They made sure I understood everything they were doing & the entire process. My lawyer went over what to expect at my hearing & accompanied me so I had support.

Thank you!
After being denied twice from the State, my doctors and family told me to get a lawyer cause that was the normal. Even though the Federal government had approved me the State had the authority to tell me no that I was not jntitled to the mkney that was forcibly taken from me my entire working career to set aside for me when I needed it. Well I needed it since I was losing my site and had had 5 heart attacks and 4 stents. Not sure why the State of Iowa had that right to put me and my family through hell for two years but irregardless Midwest Disability Legal form took good care of me and got me what was rightfully mine and ended the disastrous life I was forced to live while the State of Iowa waited for me to just give up or die whichever came first. I am ashamed to be an Iowan now. Thank you Midwest Disability for not letting me give up and lose my house and everything I have worked so hard for. Wonderful people doing wonderful things

Pleased with outcome.
I was pleased with my final decision and determination. Only problem overall, was lack of regular updates. I realize how busy a law firm can get. But I also know how much financial gain they make buy winning a case decision. The Way I understand it. The Social Security Administration can give you an update every three to four weeks. Whatever the time frame is. It would be nice if the client was also updated on how the case is proceeding. . Via text message, email or personal contact. Other than that, I am quite happy with service that I receive. From your legal team.

Awesome Job done !
I joined a page on Facebook and listened to people say 4 years they have been waiting I thought good lord this will never happen If I hadn’t gone to Florida for the winter to save my poor ravaged body from the cold I think they would have had it done in 6 months ! They did an awesome job and will tell others about them.
