    From initial application up through the Appeals Council, I have helped thousands of claimants navigate the SS Disability process and receive their awards. I also assist our Veterans' in receiving their maximum Disability allowances.

    19 years, 5,000 cases

I genuinly care about people and understand how scary and often upsetting it can be to find yourself in the position of having to deal with the Legal System. It could happen to any one at any time. I understand that and treat our clients with all the respect and compassion that I would like if I were to be in their shoes.  I take my job and my responsiblities very seriously and will work tirelessly to do the best job I am able to do for my clients.

Jennifer helped me when Jim Addler dropped me from his caseload!
I highly recommend Jennifer Lynn! Jim Addler had dropped me from his caseload in the middle of my SSi situation and right before I had a court appearance before an SSI Federal Judge. Jennifer was very helpful. She took on my case with confidence and help get my SSI started and my backpay from 2 years prior...she was well prepared at court, helpful and reassuring...you would be doing yourself an injustice if you don't hire her as your representitive. I thank God for leading me to her.

Awesome lawyer!!!
Jennifer Cook was awesome. after using other firms, and taking 5.5 years to get my case approved, she was able to accomplish success in a matter of mere months. she knows her stuff and her staff is friendly. definetly would refer her to everyone! she is a fighter. she doesnt take any guff from the ssi people. she also seems to genuinely care too.

don't go to her
Very frustrating experience. I used her for my ss disability claim. She never returns calls in spite of so many requests. My disability claim was denied because of lack of experience and poor communication. I have since found another attorney with the help of Avvo's website. My new attorney is appealing my case. As a consumer, I am so glad there are websites like Avvo that help us share our experiences. Jennifer does not listen to her clients problems or offer any real advice, she is very rude and will not answer your questions or return calls. I am sharing this experience so that someone else does not have to through what I did. There are lots of good attorneys out there who care, sadly this one is not one of them.
