Get Morgan & Weisbrod
I heard about Morgan and Weisbrod through a woman who was my mama classmate. I called the Law Firm in February of 2017. I have several Health Issues that affect me every day that I have to try and maintain to live. It took awhile but, his representatives would always contact me and let me know what was going on with my case. One person in particular that I had the most contact with the most was Mrs. Laura Sigard she represented me very well. She also traveled from Dallas to Waco when it was time for my SSI hearings. I am very grateful to have chosen Morgan & Weisbrod Law Firm. Special Thanks to Mrs. Sigard.

Amazing!
Excellent service from start to finish! There was absolutely no way I could navigate through the complexities of filing a claim let alone going through the appeals process. They handled absolutely EVERYTHING! Given my disability, I had a hard time with processing and following through on important steps and it was nice to have a competent attorney and staff to handle my case. Highly recommend for anyone filing for disability. I am truly grateful for everything Laura and her staff did to help me. Excellent service from start to finish!

Great Attorney
Hands down the best firm I found! Their staff was friendly, helpful, reassuring, and willing to take the time to listen showing that they truly care about their clients. Mr. Weisbrod himself proved to be skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate in his work. After a long road Mr. Weisbrod brought my disability case to a close with more than positive results. If I could I would give them a 10 star rating.

Carl Weisbrod - Best Disability Lawyer!!!!!!
Carl Weisbrod and his team handled my disability case and succeeded with only 1 week to prepare after I moved from IL to TX. No matter how large the task was, it was not a hurdle for Carl or his team. Very professional and respectful, would highly recommend him to EVERYONE! Thank you Carl!

Great attorney
Mr. Weisbrod and the people at his firm were exceptional. Always prepared and on top of any and every aspect of my case, Mr. Weisbrod and his people were great. My case was hard to understand and present as my maladies were not easy to identify. Mr. Weisbrod's firm provided a list of various medical providers that improved my health as well as documented my case. He was always available and we met to review the case well before we went in front of the ALJ. At the hearing Mr. Weisbrod was in command of the law and the facts of my case. He is the reason the ALJ ruled in my favor after I had been denied twice before. Mr Weisbrod is an outstanding attorney.

Dropped me !
Dropped me and gave me no specific reason while waiting for my hearing for PTSD and Biplor Disorder .
Response from Carl Weisbrod May 8, 2018
Hello Christina, I am sorry to hear that our reasons for not continuing to handle your case were unclear to you. You did not pick up when we called and your voice mail had not been set up, so we sent you a letter. We reviewed your medical evidence carefully as soon as SSA allowed us access to your electronic file. We promptly notified you of our decision well before a hearing was even scheduled to give you plenty of time to seek other representation. There was no charge to you for our services appealing your case to the hearing level. Your information is confidential of course, so this would not be the place to repeat any of the specific reasons that led us to conclude we could not help you. However If you'd like to call my office, we'd be happy to go over the issues with your file again to be sure you understand them more clearly.
