Nationwide Success Stories from Illinois Social Security Disability Lawyer
Richard I. Feingold

Benefits won for Ohio Woman Disabled by Multiple Sclerosis

Mr. Feingold helped his client win years of past due benefits plus ongoing monthly benefits for her and her family. Despite a significant award of past due benefits and potential future benefits, the amount withheld for attorney fees amounted to less than 5 percent of the past due benefits actually awarded to the claimant for attorney fees. This is because the fee agreement process approved by the Social Security Administration puts a cap on disability legal fees.

Victory in Federal Appeal Yields New Hearing and Benefits – No Fees Paid by Client

Mr. Feingold won a client’s Motion for Summary Judgment in a federal court appeal of the client’s disability determination. As a result of the favorable federal court action, the claimant secured another hearing and eventually won disability benefits. Fees for the federal court work by Mr. Feingold were paid by the government under the Equal Access to Justice Act.

Hearing and Benefits Won for Client Repeatedly Denied Hearing by SSA

Disabled by severe migraine headaches, a displaced New Orleans resident had moved numerous times and requested a hearing several times, but the request were dismissed by the SSA every time. Mr. Feingold finally got him the hearing he needed and deserved. Through the hearing, the client won disability benefits back to 1999.
