Mr. Carl Weisbrod and team are The Very Best of The Best. I cannot say enough. Dealing with disabled clients can be Very difficult, at times. Mr. Weisbrod and team have a tremendous amount of experience, wisdom and kindness to help guide everyone through. I now have the peace of mind that my disabled friend's most fundamental and basic needs will be met, and that he can hopefully and finally, continue to improve from there. Bless Mr. Weisbrod and Staff Completely! Best to you all!"

"Laura Hernandez represented me in my disability case. She was very informative. I was denied on my initial application but approved after the first hearing. She helped ease my anxieties by letting me know how the process worked and encouraged me to just be as honest as possible. The office staff is very professional, kind, informative and they return calls promptly. They did an excellent job of gathering my medical records and preparing my case, I feel the judge had a sense of who I was before I walked into the door. I would definitely recommend Laura And her colleagues at Morgan and Weisbrod. Thank you for helping me obtain a fully favorable decision!"

"I am most grateful to Mr. Carl Weisbrod for taking my case. I had never thought about applying for disability benefits. However, my wife knew a woman related (I don't recall how) to Mr. Weisbrod. When she heard my situation, she recommended to my wife that we contact him. When we did, he readily agreed to take up my case. I was forewarned that it's a long process that can take up to two years. I decided to apply because I had nothing to lose: Mr. Weisbrod's firm would not get paid unless I won, and then only a percentage of whatever back pay I received, up to a limit. I also owe much to Deana Boyd, a paralegal who helped and guided me throughout the process. She answered all my questions and reviewed material I sent to SS, giving me suggestions. Without her guidance I would have been lost in the labyrinth of requirements in the application process. Besides Deana, there were other paralegals working my case and helping me, most of whose names I unfortunately don't remember. One whose name I do remember is Cynthia Brooks-Delgado. She provided me with written and over-the-phone guidance in preparation for a medical appointment set for me by SS. Anyway, I just received notification from Social Security that I am approved for benefits. With the help of Morgan & Weisbrod LLP, I was able to obtain them in just five months (instead of two years!). I highly recommend them."

"I was so happy with my attorney. Laura was so knowledgeable, down to earth and caring. They got back to me quickly when I called with questions. They were quick at getting my paperwork filed and everything. As long as you do your part you won't have any problems. I've been fighting Social Security for decades. So, to get with Morgan & Weisbrod and within a yr get my benefits was a blessing. It was a great experience. Thank you again Laura!!!!!"
