About me

Peter J. Lemoine served as a Social Security judge for seven years before returning to private practice in 1997. Mr. Lemoine’s practice is devoted entirely to Social Security Disability Law, and he has been involved in thousands of Social Security hearings. He has appeared as topic presenter at numerous seminars dealing with Social Security Law across the South and served as an Adjunct Professor at Northwestern State from 1995-97.

Mr. Lemoine received his J.D. from Louisiana State University Law School in 1979. He has also written several articles on various Social Security topics that have been published in the Louisiana Law Review and West’s Social Security Reporting Service. 

The Lemoine Law Firm handles only Social Security Disability (DIB) and SSI. Many other attorneys who handle these cases practice other types of law. Mr. Lemoine has the experience of a former Social Security judge and a staff of fourteen professionals who have been working in the social security system for many years.
