Social Security Disability
"I contacted Charles Bean after having been denied social security disability twice. He and his staff were very understanding and comfortable to work with. They took the time to explain the process and what to expect. When it came time for my hearing, Charlie called me in ahead of time and explained what was going to happen during the hearing and how he would help me through it. He came to court fully prepared and knowledgeable of my case and showed a genuine concern and interest. I went in feeling comfortable and secure knowing he was there with me all the way. We were successful in the end, and I was so glad I had Charlie there with me. He knows his business well and truly cares about his clients and their well being. Thank you for everything!"

Absolutely AMAZING!!
Charles Bean and associates are amazing at what they do. They are very thorough and caring to what you are going through and get GREAT results. They treated me with respect and made me feel very comfortable. Charlie seemed to care very much about my injuries after my car accident and was able to get GREAT results for compensation. His office and staff are very professional and knowledgeable and they make sure you understand what is happening with your case all through the process. They were very fast and efficient when working with the insurance companies to get me the MOST compensation that was deserved, and they DID!! I am VERY PLEASED with the outcome of my case and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone and would use them again if i needed to.
