Social Security Disability / SSI

Our primary area of focus is Social Security disability law. We have zealously represented clients at every level of the Social Security disability process, including appeals to Federal Court. From Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore, each attorney in our law firm has represented clients throughout the state of Maryland. We have appeared before numerous administrative law judges in both the Baltimore and Dover hearing offices. Throughout the years we have fostered several relationships with other disability representatives and law firms. We take pride in referrals to our firm for further appeals.

Unique Social Security Legal Experience

Partners Anthony Mignini and Frederick Raab have both previously worked for the Social Security Administration. Mr. Mignini worked as a disability claims supervisor and taught several training classes for disability claims authorizers. As a part of the Staff Development Program, Mr. Mignini gained valuable experience in multiple areas of Social Security Administration operations including the Office of General Counsel, Medicare Hearings and Litigation, and Supplemental Security Income Quality Review.

Mr. Raab also worked for the Social Security Administration, initially as a disability claims authorizer.
