Disabling Conditions

Since 1980, Balin Law has helped thousands of individuals get disability benefits for a wide variety of medical conditions.

We frequently represent clients with common disabling conditions such as back injuries, arthritis, heart problems, respiratory disorders, mental health conditions, cognitive impairments and strokes.

Balin Law has also had great success obtaining disability benefits for more rare and lesser-known conditions such as EGPA / Churg-Strauss Syndrome, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Long COVID, and CRPS. Knowing that only 21% of initial applications are approved, the approval rate for lesser-known disorders is likely even lower.  With an experienced disability attorney to guide you, the likelihood of getting approved can more than double.
