About Don

Learn Don’s areas of practice.

Don Jorgensen was born and raised in San Diego, California and is the youngest of six children. He was brought up in a household where there was great emphasis on principles of honesty and integrity. As a young man, he found himself an avid defender of the “little guy”. Mr. Jorgensen learned the importance of diplomacy and the power of kind words and honesty in resolving conflicts. These skills worked well in his decision to go to law school and continue to help him in his practice.

After completing his education at Brigham Young University, Mr. Jorgensen practiced law in Texas for several years. It was during his time in Texas that Mr. Jorgensen really began to understand the frustration and fear of disabled people struggling through the Social Security process. As a full partner in one of Southeast Texas’ leading law firms, Mr. Jorgensen helped establish a leading Social Security Disability Law practice.

It is with this background that Mr. Jorgensen established Jorgensen Law, which specializes in Social Security Disability and SSI law. Mr. Jorgensen assembled a team of professionals who share his vision of helping those who are frustrated with the Federal Government and need help navigating the Social Security system. The goal of Jorgensen law is to assist clients and to help them waylay their worries involving Social Security claims while focusing on getting better.

Obtained SSI Award for me!
Very patient and helpful staff. Got my SSI Award for me.

Kind, Honest, and very knowledgeable! Strongly recommend.
Don Jorgensen was wonderful. I met him and I was frustrated and desperate. He was kind and compassionate, but told me exactly what I needed to do to help the Judge grant me benefits fast. After just 3 months I got my benefits approved. I'm just so pleased!

The only one who would finally listen
My case has finally been accepted to an appeal judge for SDI, thanks to the persistence of the staff. They have kept me informed every step of the way. This all started on 10-2-05 after being hit by a drunk driver. My insurance company, the owner's insurance company, and a long list of other did nothing to help. This group is helping.

Jorgensen Law helped me get my benefits.
I just can't say enough good about the helpful staff at Jorgensen Law and the professionalism they used in not only preparing my case, but helping me to get prepared. They reviewed all of my medical records and then told me where my case was strong and weak. I had been having mild seizures daily for several years, but I stopped telling my doctors about it. Once Mr. Jorgensen learned about it, he instructed me on how to effectively communicate my disabilities to my doctors. Every time I called, I was helped and treated with kindness. I just can't say enough good about Mr. Jorgensen and how much Jorgensen Law has meant to me.

Do NOT recommend
Retained Jorgensen law to appeal my case within the 60 days allowed and my case was not only ignored but closed by social security because they never filed a appeal. The entire staff at the office gives the run around and no answers. Ask to speak to a attorney and they’ll refuse. This form is a clown show. Instead of helping they only added stress.

Social Security & Disability Attorney | Oct 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Don is a true scholar when it comes to Social Security and their complicated laws. I have represented over 1400 claimants in front of Administrative Law Judges and I have personally referred him several cases of mine to handle in Southern California. Do not hire one of the national firms because they do not know the local medical providers and often do not give adequate attention to their clients."
