Veteran Filing for Social Security Disability


Mr. Luke is a United States Veteran who found himself unable to work like he once could. He was looking at his options because he still had bills to pay, but his disabilities were catching up with him. 


Mr. Luke was in a lot of pain. He said, “I had issues with my back and hip that started to take a toll on me in 2014. I began to address these issues and my concerns at the VA hospital and went through an MRI. The doctors found that there were issues on both my left and right side of my hips, bulging discs in my lower back along with neuropathy.”


Mr. Luke was a driver for many years and found himself unable to get in and out of vehicles.


I was a driver for many years and couldn’t even get in and out of vehicles because the pain was so bad.”


Hiring experienced Social Security disability lawyers


Mr. Luke’s friend had worked with Balin Law and had a good experience so he decided to contact us.


We asked about his experience working with Paulette Balin and Balin Law. Mr. Luke’s responded, “I loved working with Paulette! She is so professional. [Balin Law] put me in the back seat of the car and drove me through the whole process. They made it simple for me and made my life easier. Balin Law helped me with patience and tolerance and told me to trust the process. The outcome was beautiful. The judge ruled a fully favorable decision on my case!” 


We asked what Mr. Luke’s favorite part was working with Balin Law. He said, “Everything [Balin Law] suggested was in my best interest. They were great about my documentation and following up with everything and they just always had great advice for me. I so appreciate Balin Law working with me…they were more than advisors and advocates for me…they became my friends.”
