About me

Lee Jurewitz is the lead attorney responsible for helping Social Security Disability clients for the Jurewitz Law Group, helping disabled clients who cannot work at any job get the disability benefits they deserve.


Unlike most law firms, Ms. Jurewitz believes that helping applicants from filing through appeal is the best approach since 75% or more of all applications are denied and this method ensures that the application is perfectly positioned for appeal.  In addition, due to her civil litigation background, Ms. Jurewitz works up each case to a level of detail not typically acheived by other Social Security Disability law firms.
