Approved at the Reconsideration Appeal, thanks to Roger
Roger was instrumental at getting me approved once the initial appeal was filed. My SSDI claim was initially filed on June 17, 2010 and I was officially approved on December 14, 2010. He charges a 25 % fee of all backpay or $6000.00, whichever is less, but it is well worth it. The initial consult with him was very professional and he was very good about getting back to me if I had a question or something (text messaging works best with Roger because he spends a lot of time in court). Anyway, only about 15% SSDI cases get approved at the Reconisideration level and I was one of the lucky ones. Thanks Roger.

Excellent Attorney
I retired recently. I have three issues that I felt qualified me for disability. Each issue, on its own, may not have been enough, but combined together properly I felt it might work. Roger took me on and had me qualified at my second review. I received back disability payments to my retirement date. In every aspect of my application Roger assisted me in gathering the correct information, submitting it correctly, and answering all questions from the folks in the disability process. He is easy and pleasant to work with, responding to all my calls and emails. He made the process as painless as it could be. I recommend Roger to you with complete confidence that you will receive the same response and care I received. There is a reason he is so highly rated. I rate him at six stars, but unfortunately, I am limited to five. Thanks Roger for all your help.

Disability Claim
Met with Roger after filing a disabilty claim on my own and was denied! I should have gone to him from the beginning. At our first meeting we discussed what was needed from me and how he would handle my appeal. We kept each other informed as the process contiuned. When it was time for my hearing, Roger was well versed with my case and prepared me for what to expect at the hearing. The day of the hearing, he had a calming manner and guided me throught the proceedings! He was amazing! By the way, we won the case! Great attorney!

Date of last Insured issue for SSDI appeal
I hired Roger Hutchinson to represent me for my SSDI hearing. I had a very difficult case to win due to the fact that my case had a Date last insured issue. I had attempted to speak to several different lawyers to determine if someone thought they could represent my case, and when they saw the date last insured issue, no one would even meet with me to review my claim. Roger from the very first phone conversation was very compassionate & agreed to meet with me to go over my case. In fact, he said that even if he could not take my case, he could give me some advice on how to proceed on my own. Roger looked at my case through a free consultation. During the consultation he explained why there was a date last insured issue & why they are so hard to win. After reviewing my medical records, he agreed to represent me. He advised that due to my complex medical history & date last insured issue, that a medical expert would be beneficial for my situation. Roger knew the best way to present my case & medical evidence to the Judge. Roger was always compassionate, professional, and patient with me and answered all my questions during every phase of my case. I would highly recommend Roger to others. He presented to me and my Husband as a man with compassion, integrity, and vast knowledge of the disability claims process. I would not have won my case without his expertise & understanding of the system.

Highly Qualified, Professional and Responsive
Roger is an outstanding attorney representing social security disability claims. His professional and caring manner proves him to be successful in his work. I knew my claim was going to be a challenge and Roger met those challenges with knowledge and expertise. What I considered to be an 18 month project was approved within 5 months. He is energetic and responsive to the needs of his clients. He is honest and upfront in his advice and I highly recommend his services.

Invaluable expertise with professional, knowledgeable and caring legal services
Roger Hutchison is everything that a client needs and appreciates in SSD legal counsel: caring, yet extremely professional, knowledgeable and responsive throughout the entire process. Filing an SSD claim is the most daunting task I have ever been involved with. Hiring Roger to handle my SSD claim from the outset was the best decision I could ever have made with regard to my case. In fact, I am certain that my claim would not have been accepted without his invaluable expertise. I highly recommend Roger’s support, guidance and representation for anyone intending to file or who has filed a SSD claim.

For complicated disability matters
I knew my Social Security disability case would not be easy, but Roger made it happen! His decision to hire consultants to review my records was spot on! And his knowledge of the process made all the difference, winning a favorable attorney advisor decision on my behalf, even after I had moved out of state. He is especially good at client relations. I felt well-advised throughout the process. I highly recommend Roger.

Disability Social Security
Roger is a skillful attorney who helped me successfully resolve my disability claim. Without his diligence and expertise, it would have been extremely difficult to navigate the system on my own. He is very professional and knowlegeable of the process needed to get things done.

The Best Investment For Your Future
I could not be more pleased with Roger’s performance and brilliant handling of my disability case. I spoke with two other Social Security disability attorneys and I knew immediately Roger was the one I wanted to handle my case. He incorporated the help of a vocational expert to seal my case in less than 3 months. Don’t go this route alone. The best investment for your future is to contact Roger.
