Have you been injured at work or been denied Social Security? The Carlo Law Group can help you
Disability attorneys serving The Greater San Jose Area
Social Security Disability (SSDI) & California Workers Compensation. We know the Rules!
We are a San Jose disability law firm with many years of experience in the community helping thousands of clients with severe disabilities and work injuries get the compensation and medical benefits they need.
Our law firm was founded in 1999 and the philosophy
that guides our firm rests with the ancient basis of virtue: Truth, Beauty, Unity and Justice.
We handle all matters in accord with this philosophic base.
Our firm expects fully truthful presentations of fact from both our clients and adversaries. We work on a team basis to obtain justice for our clients who are very often the underdog (the disabled claimant against the insurance company or federal government). This theme represents a core belief and philosophy of our attorneys and staff.
Our attorneys are very experienced at securing benefits for clients that have had their Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Workers’ Compensation claims denied or delayed.
We are highly skilled in the more complex areas of disability law such as the Subsequent Injuries Benefit Trust Fund (SIF/SIBTF).
