SSD Overview

We are proud to be one of the top Social Security Disability benefit attorneys in Buffalo, NY. Specializing in fighting for clients who are disabled and can no longer work, we will help you each step of the way to apply for and receive the  Social Security benefits that you deserve.

During your difficult hardship, we will fight on your behalf to make sure you can continue to support your family.

Led by our founder William C. Bernhardi, our firm has over 50 years of experience in Social Security Disability (SSD) cases. Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Bernhardi worked as a Disability Analyst and Claims Representative for the Social Security Administration. That experience coupled with his legal training has provided the firm with a comprehensive understanding how the entire process works.

Our firm works on many types of Social Security Disability Cases, including applications, disability cessations, overpayment cases and worker’s compensation issues.

Keep in mind, benefits are based on a wage earner’s earnings. An earner can be found disabled for a wide range of medical conditions, including both physical and mental ailments.  We will analyze your claim and help to tell your specific story in a way that will get the best results.

In addition, disabled widowers can apply for widow benefits after they turn 50 and there are benefits available to disabled adult children of a wage earner if his or her disability began before age 22.

Those are just a few examples of a very nuanced process. To learn more about the process or to discuss your specific needs, contact William C. Bernhardi Law Offices, PLLC today.
