I recommend

I am so grateful to Mr. Cervoni for helping to get my application for SSDI approved on initial application. I provided medical records and he did the rest. Honestly. I was a bit nervous through the process because I could not see the application. When SSA asked for more information (a standard form), his staff spent a couple of hours on the phone with me and completed the long form. When you are sick, it's really hard to figure out new systems and forms. Mr. Cervoni made it easy.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

When my wife’s SSDI disability claim was denied we lost all hope but then I hired Mr Derek Cervoni to file an appeal and persue her case with the Social Security Administration. His professionalism, knowledge, experience and the way he presented the case to the Judge was extraordinary. He provided the highest level of service and I am very happy and grateful to him that my wife’s disability benefit was finally approved.

SSI Lawyer

Derek is an amazing lawyer who handled our SSI case. He began the process with explaining how the application is submitted and the documentation needed. He communicated with both SSA and us regarding additional documentation needed, and meetings to attend, until our application was finally approved. He made the entire process smooth and easy. We are very happy with his service and expertise. We would highly recommend him and his staff.

Excellent SSDI Attorney

I contacted Derek for help filing for SSDI benefits and on our first phone call he walked me through the process, explained everything, and answered my (many) questions. Derek is exceptionally knowledgeable regarding Social Security law and the benefits application process. He is thorough, always available, regularly kept me updated on my claim status, and made me feel very comfortable knowing he was handling everything. I cannot recommend Derek enough and will continue to refer friends to his practice.

Highly Recommend

I hired Derek's firm to help me through a disability claim. I don't have a lot of experiences with lawyers and Derek was recommended to me by a friend. His firm made the process easy for me, handling much of the heavy lifting. When my court hearing came, arguably the most stressful and daunting portion of the process, Derek walked me though my testimony, making me feel comfortable to tell my story. Things went well and my claim was ultimately successful, thanks to Derek's advocacy on my behalf. I highly recommend his services. Plus, he's a nice guy.

My claim was approved and I couldn’t recommend his work more

Derek Cervoni is a great lawyer and as others have written, he's patient, empathetic and a pleasure to deal with. My claim was denied twice yet Derek was able to secure for me a hearing before a judge. He patiently walk me through my testimony and made the process as stress free as possible. As a result, I felt comfortable and confident during the hearing. Thanks to Derek's counsel, my claim was approved and I couldn't recommend his work more.

Mr. Cervoni always kept me updated on what was going on and was always available and would respond quickly by either phone or email to any questions or concerns I had throughout the process. Mr. Cervoni prepared me for my hearing and knew exactly what evidence to present as well as what questions to ask to both myself and the vocational expert. Due to this Mr. Cervoni and his staff we were able to get a fully favorable decision at my hearing. I am so grateful for both Mr. Cervoni and his staff, especially Mrs. Clarke and Mr. Camper-Barry for all of their help. I cannot thank you enough.

Disability Lawyer A+

After my 1st denial, my Mr. Cervoni accepted my case and worked with me very patiently and professionally answering all my emails and calls. Many times he followed up a voice mail with an email. The SSDI process is long and tedious, I would suggest you contact him prior to submitting your initial application. Thank you Mr. Cervoni for always hearing me out when I needed to vent and for making sure I had a successful outcome.

Experienced, Efficient, and Accessible

Mr. Cervoni was an excellent choice to handle my disability appeal before an administrative law judge. He is a specialist with years of experience in the SSA disability field (he had even previously appeared before the ALJ who caught my case); he adapted quickly to the changes in the appeals process caused by the covid pandemic; he got to know my case by reading the material I had already submitted on my initial application so that I didn't have to explain it to him on the phone; and he always kept me updated on developments and responded promptly to my requests for information...

I could not be happier with Mr. Cervoni’s work on my case. I hired him after my denial knowing I needed an expert. He managed the case very well and was always responsive to my questions. Clearly he has expertise and experience that was invaluable to me. The case has been successfully completed. I would be delighted to recommend him to anyone needing help with their claim.

Great Lawyer for SSDI

Mr. Cervoni handled my case for the long haul. I have PTSD so often wrote emails that were emotionally charged. Also it took almost 2 years for my case to settle and I often complained. Mr. Cervoni was always professional no matter what I said. He answered my emails the next day. He gathered my medical records when I could not. I have very high praise for how he handled my case.

His representation is the reason our claim was approved! Presentation is everything! I would absolutely recommend Derek Cervoni!

A Disability Lawyer that Actually Cares

Being a relatively younger individual diagnosed with multiple rheumatic diseases, it was hard trying to find a lawyer to take me seriously or even take my case. One of the lawyers I encountered prior to Mr. Cervoni referred me to him. I’m very grateful she did! Derek is an awesome communicator and tries to understand all the issues I was experiencing. After losing my initial appeal, I was very discouraged and didn’t think I would get awarded with SSD. THANK YOU MR. CERVONI AND ASSOCIATES!!!

Mr. Cervoni provides outstanding legal representation and honest guidance throughout the period of client representation and beyond. Mr. Cervoni demonstrates tenacious and relentless efforts while serving his clients no matter how lengthy and complicated the process might be. Mr. Cervoni represented me for a few years and refused to give up on my case before exhausting all the due process until I received approval for my claim. Mr. Cervoni is a very honest professional that serves his clients with dedication and respect.

Smooth Process

Before coming to Mr. Cervoni I had been denied twice, and needed assistance appealing my case before a Judge. I received a call back from a friendly receptionist within a short while after submitting my online inquiry. After explaining my situation, I received a callback that same day from Mr. Cervoni to further discuss my case! From the beginning, he treated me as a person, with dignity. He explained everything, and always answered my questions same day with a email or phone call. My case turned out favorable, thanks to Cervoni Disability Law.

Wonderful experience

I had nothing but a wonderful experience from the moment I contacted Mr. Cervoni’s office. From the initial intake person up to talking to Mr. Cervoni. If I had any questions I sent a e-mail or requested a phone call and I always received a quick response. I had an issue getting some of the requested information and his office was very understanding. Even after my case was closed I had questions and as usual his office answered all of my questions. I will make sure to pass his information along to anyone in need of assistance.

I have the utmost respect for Mr. Cervoni and his staff

First, allow me to say I have the utmost respect for Mr. Cervoni and his staff. About a year ago I was contemplating on filing for disability after working for a very strenuous, physical, and demanding job for 35 years. I am not one to quit as I tried several work attempts to continue my job after taking time off but my back and lower extremities we're really taking a toll on me which made it hard to function outside of work let alone work 14 hours a day at times. I decided to call Mr. Cervoni's Law Firm just to get a feel of what to do as I knew nothing about this process. Derek politely and calmly give me every answer I needed with no pressure at all, as a matter of fact, I even tried going back to work after giving him the information an indication I was going through with this case, I took his time and he was more than patient with me. I think this is another reason I called him back after my last work attempt. Mr. Cervoni asked me a few questions to get the initial application started and to submit a few forms, then he took over right away. Between Derek and Michael, both always promptly answered my replies or emails with issues that sometimes weren't even relevant enough for the case, but made me feel at ease anyway and extremely professional and courteous. They were very descriptive and detailed of what they needed from me and if I didn't completely understand they would walk me through it with no problem. Filing for disability is extremely difficult and technical and if any mistakes are made, it could prolong or even have your case denied. I believe it is extremely important to have professional help in this matter and Derek Cervoni is that man. I was awarded the first initial application which I heard is rather rare. I was speechless and relieved, to say the least! I would highly suggest using this firm for any type of disability through SSA or disability period! The man knew every question I threw at him with great detail and confidence. I can only imagine him in action at a hearing, even though ours didn't make it that far. I cannot thank him enough for what he and his staff have done for me and my family in such a short time. I was made to feel completely comfortable throughout the process with a lot of compassion expressed from Derek towards the disabled and special needs. Thank you, Derek and Michael! You changed my life for the better!

Choosing an attorney is difficult. Mr. Cervoni was recommended to me by another attorney. After consulting with Mr. Cervoni, I felt he was professional and the right person for my disability case. He was clear on what he needed from me. After I provided him the information and documentation, it was a matter of a couple of days and he had the appeal submitted to Social Security. He explained what to expect and how long it may take. He is polite and professional and truly deserves 5 stars of excellence.

He explained what to expect and how long it may take. He is polite and professional and truly deserves 5 stars of excellence. (more…)

I STILL Cannot Recommend Mr. Cervoni Enough

First, if Mr. Cervoni takes your case, he believes you have a valid Social Security Disability Benefits claim. Second and most importantly, you can count on him to exceed your expectations. Mr. Cervoni is a no-nonsense, meticulous, and thorough disability attorney. He is an expert in navigating disability claims, and I couldn't be more thankful to have him represent my case. Mr. Cervoni has put an exceptional amount of time, effort, and energy into my case. While I do not know my next decision from SSA, even if it's (unfairly) unfavorable, I STILL cannot recommend Mr. Cervoni enough.

We are forever grateful to Mr. Cervoni and his amazing staff

In 2014 - my vibrant and healthy 32 year-old daughter became ill with Lyme disease... Not aware of the complexity of the SSD process, we filled out her application, applied, and was quickly denied... When I first called Mr. Cervoni, I was put at ease as he asked detailed questions about my daughter's disability and how far along she was in the SSDI process. When he spoke with my daughter, he was so patient and answered all of her questions. We both knew she was in good hands... They guided us through the process, kept us informed, and were sympathetic when we called... Mr. Cervoni and his staff were compassionate, thorough, understanding, patient, and they were always available if you had a question... If you are serious about winning your social security disability, you should contact Derek Cervoni.

Amazing Victory in my 2 year long disability case!

I had applied for disability between 2016-2017 when I had to stop working after numerous health issues and diagnosis: fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, GI issues, chronic anxiety... These issues caused very debilitating years for me but between 2018-2019 I was successful while working with Mr. Cervoni. I was denied on my own twice, so do not wait to hire a disability lawyer.  I would recommend Mr. Cervoni to anyone that needs him.

Great advocate for navigating the system

Dealing with a severely disabling chronic illness can be treacherous on many fronts. Aside from the daily pain of living with disease, having SSA dismiss your case only adds insult to injury. Mr. Cervoni took on our case when another disability lawyer wouldn't due to the complicated nature of the disease. Not only was he there every step of the way during the multiple appeals processes, he was quick to answer any and all questions in a timely manner and guided us through the disability hearing process.

The best choice I could’ve made!

After using another company to file for my social security disability and being denied benefits several times, I finally smartened up after almost four years and hired Mr.Cervoni. Let me tell you...it was a decision I should’ve made years ago had I been better informed. Mr. Cervoni agreed to take on my case despite my complex medical history and from the beginning, was always very compassionate, well-informed, and responsive.

After the second denial of my Social Security disability claim (the initial and the redetermination) I thought I would never get approved, but Mr. Cervoni believed in my case and we went for the hearing. He knows the system and told me what to expect during the hearing and he was absolutely right. Mr. Cervoni won my case.

Social Security Disability Claim

When my SSDI disability claim was denied I lost all hope but then I hired Mr Derek Cervoni to file an appeal and persue my case with the Social Security Administration. His professionalism, knowledge, experience and the way he presented my case to the Judge was extraordinary. He provided the highest level of service and I am very happy and grateful to him that my disability benefit was finally approved.

Great experience!

I've learned 2 things as the parent of a special needs child. 1) There are a lot of brick walls to be knocked down. 2) When someone else already knows how to knock them down, ask them for help! Such was the case with our SSI application and Derek Cervoni. He walked us through how the process would work, he did the legwork, and he kept us informed throughout the process. Derek knows the application process inside and out and made sure everything was in order to make the process as smooth as it could be.

He completely took the reigns and helped me keep my dignity through this very emotionally charged transition. No one wants to be disabled or feel useless and he pushed me when I was giving up as I have been so depressed about my limitations. Thank you for pushing me through a humiliating process!

Awesome Lawyer

My wife and I have worked for years (with an advocate) to get disability benefits. Her doctors have diagnosed her with Parkinson's, Dementia and much more. Our advocate failed miserably and even embarrassed us in front of the judge. Derek was our last hope. He was kind, conscientious, attentive and thorough. He took our calls and clearly explained the processes and procedures. What we couldn't accomplish in years Derek accomplished in months. My wife's disability claim was approved due to the efforts of Derek Cervoni. We are so grateful!

Mr. Cervoni helped my wife, who was suffering from a permanent brain injury, get approved on her first go around. A lot of people get denied their first time. Mr. Cervoni is well versed with social security methods, rules and regulations and was always contacting the necessary parties by phone vs email or snail mail. He kept us abreast of the case status throughout the whole process and made us feel confident that the case was proceeding as expected and not lost between the cracks.  I would recommend Mr. Cervoni to anyone who has a legitimate claim.

SSDI Approved!

Awesome litigator! I thought navigating and applying for SSDI would be similar to that of the VA benefits. It was not. Although 100% P&T, I was denied initial SSDI benefits. I researched Mr. Cervoni’s record and contacted his office. His staff was pleasant and very helpful right out the gate. He accepted my case. I didn’t look back; however, I was amazed at how swift and un-stressful my hearing was. After months of waiting, my case was over in less than 20 minutes. Mr. Cervoni was prepared to the point the SSA expert witnesses had no rebuttals. Would I recommend Mr. Cervoni? Yes, without hesitation. However, I would also recommend you as the client to help yourself out in advance by seeing the doctor(s), start gathering your medical records, and research all disabilities being claimed.

Because of my rare medical condition I had no hope of winning my case. I could not even get a proper diagnosis from a physician. But Mr. Cervoni did not give up and continued to help me. He was always easily accessible and kept me informed of the entire process. Because of his knowledge, guidance, tireless effort and encouragement I hung on and within a short period of time I won my case. Mr. Cervoni is not only an expert in his field he is a compassionate person who truly cares about his clients and their families. I am thrilled with the results and so glad and grateful I found him because without him I would not have pursued or won my case. If you need an attorney I would not look any further, he is your man, a top notch well respected attorney who genuinely cares. I would not go anywhere else.

They helped me every step of the way, keeping me on track with what I was supposed to do or paperwork to fill out or find. It is due to them that I received my SSDI award this month!

Ultimately awarded benefits after Mr. Cervoni had the ALJ’s unfavorable decision vacated

I met with several attorneys after my SSDI claim was denied twice by SSA. I ultimately chose CDL to represent my disability claim related to mental illness. This type of claim can be difficult to prove since the disorder does not have the clear biological markers of a physical disability. Mr. Cervoni's firm handled the paperwork with SSA on my behalf and accompanied me to the review hearing. We were ultimately awarded benefits after Mr. Cervoni had the ALJ's unfavorable decision vacated by the Appeals Council. His firm is familar with the nuances of the application process and can navigate through the appeals process to give your claim the best chance for a successful outcome.

Derek S. Cervoni knew precisely what specific facts and medical tests results to present at my hearing. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Support for Complex Disability Case

Derek Cervoni helped me win my complex disability case with great care and skill. After several years of denials, he took over my final appeal, explained the steps, and worked with me to make each submission complete. Nothing slipped through the cracks and he used whatever my doctors provided to make the best possible case. After years of increasing medical problems and denials it was very comforting to have a positive outcome. Thank you Mr. Cervoni!

Cervoni Disability Law

I have spent my career being involved in government regulations or working on statutory language. This area of law is complex. We were completely lost until we retained Cervoni Disability Law. Thorough. Competent. In short, they provided excellent representation. We were very pleased with their service and, more importantly, the outcome.
