what makes us different
Dave Chermol, Esq: "The reason clients can feel comfortable coming to our firm for help with their disability cases is because that is what so many other disability lawyers do. Other disability firms from around the country bring us their most difficult disability cases that they know they cannot win without our help. There can be no greater endorsement than the fact that some of the very best disability attorneys in the nation come to us. We are national leaders in this area of the law.
Part of the reason why our fellow disability lawyers look to Chermol & Fishman so much is because our attorneys have more high level experience within SSA itself than any other law firm in the nation. As our firm moto says, our edge is bringing experience from the inside to your side.
We know the system from the inside and that let’s us maximize your chances of winning. And unlike many disability firms, we will handle cases at every level from initial applications, to hearings, all the way up to federal court. There is no more respected name in the disability community than ours."
What We Do
Our Practice Areas
Social Security Disability Benefits
Each year, an increasing number of individuals apply for disability benefits. While many people are aware of the benefits the program provides, very few understand the complicated application process itself.
Supplemental Security Income
SSI is primarily a federal welfare program for disabled individuals. SSI benefits are paid out of the yearly federal budget drawn from income taxes. They are not paid out of the Social Security trust fund.
Simply put, we know the system, its rules and its pitfalls both inside and out. As a result, we believe that our firm is uniquely suited to help you succeed at any level of the disability claims process.
Who We Are
"...we close by commending all counsel for the skill of their advocacy. In particular, for plaintiff’s counsel, this litigation has been a testament to both persistence and passionate advocacy, qualities that mark the highest ideals of our profession.”—Judge Martin C. Carlson on Mr. Chermol’s advocacy work in Diaz v. Saul (2019)
