How did you build a successful practice?
A substantial portion of our cases are based on referral from satisfied clients and their families. They know that we prepare very hard for cases. We commit to returning phone calls by the next business day, and send a letter at the end of the case asking the client if we met that commitment.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients need an attorney with substantial experience in Social Security law. They need an attorney who will talk with them during the case and meet with them before the case to prepare; an attorney who will draft a brief explaining what the evidence is.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Different judges will ask different questions. We know the judges who hear cases in Salt Lake City. At our firm, we review the questions the judges will ask and review them with our clients before the hearing.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We can help a client understand what type of benefits to apply for and the date the client should claim they became disabled (it is not necessarily the same as when you last worked). We can help a client understand the process and what type of medical problems should be considered.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
We ask that the client knows when they last earned over $1,000 in a month, when they last worked, their age, their medications and what their medical problems are. We do not expect clients to obtain records before talking to us or meeting with us.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
Glen Cook has over 30 years in the practice of law and was an attorney for the Social Security Administration. He will talk directly to clients and meet with clients. His staff have substantial experience with the practice of Social Security law as well. Before the hearing, he prepares a brief explaining the evidence and meets with the client to prepare for the hearing. We work to obtain all of the medical records for the client.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Obtaining Social Security and SSI benefits can mean a client has a roof over their head and food. The work we do can actually prevent or end homelessness.

Are you involved in your community?
Glen Cook has served on the Board of Governors for Shriners Hospital for Children, the Board of Directors for the Scottish Rite Foundation, the local NAACP Board of Directors, the Clan Urquhart Foundation, as a Bar Examiner, on the editorial Board for the Utah Bar Journal, President of the Utah Scottish Association, Chairman of the Society of Scottish Armigers.
