Excellent attorney
Mr. Fischer handled my disability claim and I was very pleased with him. He was very quick to respond to my phone calls and answer any questions I had at that time. I would recommend Mr. Fischer to anyone needing an attorney.

Very Happy Client
The first time I talked to Mr. Fischer, he was so kind. Filing for disability is not easy. It is a long, sometimes difficult, undertaking. Mr. Fischer was always helpful and patient with me. We prevailed in my case and I could not have done it without him. I could not be more pleased with his representation and I would recommend him to anyone who asked me.

Professional
Mr. Fischer represented me in my Social Security Disability. He worked with me over the phone and through e-mail. Mr. Fischer was prompt with returning my phone calls or answering my e-mails with any questions. With Mr. Fischer’s knowledge and expertise in Social Security Disability I was approved within 9 months from the time I filed. I highly recommend his law firm.

Recommendation
Mr. Fischer handled my wife's Social Security Disability case. He worked with us over the phone and we met him just before the hearing. We felt confident in his expertise and found him to be both personable and professional.

Excellent experience
Mr. Fischer and his office were top notch from beginning to conclusion of my case. Although my case presented some challenges, they patiently worked through everything and kept me informed. Also, when I emailed with questions, Mr. Fischer or someone on his team were quick to respond. They took care of all the paperwork and I qualified for disability, with no need for my case to be appealed. Would highly recommend his services.
