I had checked with three other law firms but went with Jan based on his very favorable online reviews and I'm very glad that I did. Vicki was very prompt at returning calls and made sure my questions were answered. James Leeny did an excellent job at my hearing and even drove me to court (due to my vision, I couldn't drive). He prepared me very well for the hearing and clarified things during the hearing when it got confusing. Jan and his team kept me informed during the whole process and we got the best possible results. I highly recommend Jan Kodner and his firm.

Working with Attorney Jan L. Kodner and his staff was a extremely positive experience in pursuing social security disability. I tried to file on my own only to be rejected, then a friend recommended contacting Jan L. Kodner and Associates in Chicago. I was amazed how they used their years of experience, professionalism and diligence to have a successful outcome with my case. It was a long battle, with several appeals, but they perservered. I am forever thankful and they deserve the most compensation available for their hard work. He also just recently merged with another social disability attorney group, Rabin, Kodner, Brown which will provide even more experience. I would definitely recommend this attorney.

Mr. Kodner recently won my Social Security Disability case for me. He and his wonderful staff did an excellent job and I would highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable and I could not be more pleased! Thank you, Mr. Kodner!

Professional, Knowledgeable, Courteous and, most of all, Successful. If Jan Kodner takes your case it means he truly believes you have a legitimate claim to your SS disability benefits. We were successful at the appeal stage, but were prepared to go all the way to a hearing. Thanks to Jan and his team we didn't have to go that far. Thank you, Jan!

Hiring the Law Offices of Jan L. Kodner & Associates, Ltd. far exceeded my expectations! From the beginning to the end of my case, I received high-quality representation from the seasoned attorneys, paralegals, legal secretaries, and administrative staff at the firm. The firm works as a professional, patient, cordial, “team” which clearly attributes to the success of the firm. Going through the SSD process is lengthy, and it is very hard to find the type of representation where one feels “at ease” not speaking to the attorney with each call. 99% of any questions I had after the process began were answered by the knowledgeable legal team who answered the phone. Written correspondence with the firm was answered and handled immediately. This law firm cares about their clients, and works hard to achieve the results you are looking for. This firm keeps their records and clients up to date. If you want high-quality representation call the Law Offices of Jan L. Kodner & Associates today!

Mr. Kodner, Mr. Bass, Angel, and Vicki were patience with me. The disability claim with social security took 5 months start to finish. w/ $$$ back-pay. The cost-effective procedures used saved time and effort. My head is still spinning from how fast this worked out. The initial phone interview was an hour long. Easy and necessary in retrospect. Following the instructions given was easy . They explained a few details to me 3 times This aided my understating of the whole process.. This firm was recommended to me from another lawyer.

I was disabled two years ago and left without the ability to walk. I hired Jan Kodner to help me apply for disability and the experience was excellent. Their office walked me through the process and helped me to figure the best way to present my case to the state which I did by filling out a very long questionnaire. If I did not have the office's guidance, I would have left out several very important points and probably not been successful in receiving my disability.
Within five months of meeting with Jan, and filling out the state's forms, I received my disability. I am very pleased with the result because it is difficult to succeed in collecting disability and I was in the very low percentage of successful applicants.
The office was very professional, the staff attentive and courteous, and their fee was reasonable. I recommend this firm highly.

I have always been a challenge for lawyers to work with because I have a good knowledge of how the court system and political process work. Jan and I meshed well right away. You have to listen to him, take his advise, follow-up on what he says, and fight for your case. He will too. Remember, you are partners in your case. He knows his business and believes in what he does. He loves to help people and that is a big part of his reward. He is great at what he does and very efficient. Listen to his counsel. We finished my case in less than six months. He is a great guy and a great attorney.

This firm was fantastic while handling my Social Security Disability case.
Mr. Kodner and his Associates worked very hard. My case lasted over 6 years and they never gave up.
The communication was excellent along with their administrative staff. I would recommend Mr.Kodner, as he did not give up and fought for my rights.

This is not a firm you want to use! They're only interest is in your back pay, not YOU! Once they win your case they will only make sure their firm gets paid their payment from your back pay! Mean while you will still be waiting on your back pay for months and if you bother them about it. Mr Kodner will email you back some 3rd grade snappy response like a queen on the rag! I've had to continue to call and email just to get them to do their job! As a matter of fact the only contact you may receive with their firm is a 10 minute phone call the day before your hearing! Horrible Firm!!! Any firm but this place!!!
