What Our Clients Say About Us
Top notch. I’ve had to deal with attorneys before so I knew a little of what to expect when I got in my accident. I called Sobo & Sobo first because of their reputation for getting great results. They got be a great result in my particular case but what I was surprised about is how nice and friendly everyone is at the firm. You don’t feel slimy when you hire them to help with your personal injury case because they are great lawyers and good people too.

I love these guys. They helped with my personal injury case and are now helping with my SSD case. If it weren’t for this firm, I would be financially ruined. They have made all the difference for me.

- C.D. June 17, 2018
There is so much to like about this firm. They don’t charge you a penny except from what THEY WIN. They take the time to explain things, and you don’t feel slimy seeing them because you can tell that they are great lawyers but also great people. I wish all lawyers were like the Sobo firm.
- K.M. May 3, 2018
I have nothing but positive things to say about this firm. Warm and welcoming from the very first day to the very last day. Terrific settlement that was more than I could have hoped for. I just don’t see how a firm can get any better than Sobo & Sobo.

Experienced New York Social Security Disability Lawyer That Get Results
Unable to Work? Your Story Matters
Social Security Disability Benefits
Many people suffer injuries or illnesses and find themselves in a position of being unable to perform simple activities much less make it into work each day. When you are hurt and are facing the possibility of being unable to work for an extended period of time, the physical, emotional and financial stress can be overwhelming. Fortunately, if you have an illness, injury or disability that makes it nearly impossible for you to work, you may qualify for benefits from the federal government called Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI).
SSD is a benefit program run by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you have worked hard and paid into Social Security through your taxes, then the benefits are there to help you and your family through this difficult time. Unfortunately, over 60 percent of the people who apply for SSD benefits are initially rejected. This is where the assistance of an experienced social security disability attorney can be your biggest asset. You need Sobo & Sobo.
The application process for collecting Social Security Disability Benefits can be overwhelming, especially if you are not at your best. The eligibility requirements can be at times complicated. You see, the more you have worked and paid into the system, the more compensation you will be able to receive. Working with a law firm like Sobo & Sobo means that you have a team of people dedicated to helping you collect your benefits. Our team will collect evidence for you, fill out paperwork on your behalf, and even help you write a letter to notify your employer that you have been injured.
Social Security Disability Benefits Eligibility
According to the Social Security Administration, you can apply for disability benefits if you:
- Are age 18 or older
- Not currently receiving benefits on your own Social Security record
- You have not been denied disability benefits in the last 60 days
- Have a medical condition expecting to last 12 months or more that makes you unable to work
Medical conditions that are eligible to receive SSD benefits include:
- Musculoskeletal problems such as back injuries
- Respiratory illnesses such as COPD or asthma
- Cardiovascular conditions such as heart failure or coronary artery disease
- Neurological conditions such as MS, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease or epilepsy
- Mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia or autism
- Immune system issues such as HIV, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
- Syndromes such as Sjogren’s Syndrome or Marfan Syndrome
- Digestive tract problems such as liver disease or IBD
- Skin disorders such as psoriasis or dermatitis
- Vision or hearing loss
Even if you are rejected during the first step of the process, we will be by your side to make sure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled. You have up to 60 days of the date you receive a decision letter to request an appeal. During the sometimes arduous appeal process, we will be by your side, keeping you informed along every step of the way.
