Successful SSDI claim

I am a 100% disabled veteran. I hired Mr. Cervoni to assist me with my social security disability insurance claim. Working with him and his entire staff was easy and pleasant. I provided him with my medical history and he interacted with the social security administration on my behalf, which resulted in my SSDI claim being administratively approved without having to take the case to an ALJ. His entire staff was responsive and professional at all times. 5 stars.

Review of Derek S. Cervoni

I highly recommend Derek Cervoni, who represented me in filing a Social Security Disability (SSD) claim. Mr. Cervoni was recommended to me by a partner at the Goodwin Procter law firm in Washington, DC. Mr. Cervoni was wonderful to work with during every aspect of my case. He was very approachable, and he was extremely helpful in filing my claim. He filled out all of the SSD forms for me, and he continually kept me up-to-date on the status of my case. I am very grateful that he was able to represent me in my SSD claim.

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...

Derek Cervoni is a great lawyer and as others have written

Derek Cervoni is a great lawyer and as others have written, he's patient, empathetic and a pleasure to deal with.

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!!!

Will Work Hard for You

When you leave it in his hands you can truly focus on what matters, your health.  I was a federal employee that found myself no longer able to work due to having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), which was complicated by injuries from an auto accident. ...he's used to working with people that are so ill that making or answering calls is extremely difficult. From our first conversation, I felt very well taken care of and understood.

Social Security Disability Claim

Mr. Cervoni thank you because I was going to give up

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 was the most success while working with Mr. Cervoni. I was denied on my own twice, so do not wait to hire a disability lawyer and I would recommend Mr. Cervoni to anyone that needs him.

Excellent SSDI Attorney

I cannot recommend Derek enough and will continue to refer friends to his practice.

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.

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.

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.

When you are not able to help yourself …..

You are successful, smart, intelligent, energetic, purposeful, and life is great until one day, you can no longer function in the way you once were able to. You can’t fake it anymore-people notice that something is not quite right with you and avoid you. You keep working until you almost become a detriment to yourself or others. Then you know you need someone to help you. Don’t do it alone. Attorney Cervoni applied for my disability and I was approved quickly. I could not have done it without him. He communicates clearly and helps you so much. Attorney Cervoni is to be trusted.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Knowledgeable and Responsive

Attorney Cervoni helped us file a disability claim for our disabled son and guided us effectively every step of the way. There is a lot of paperwork involved but he helped us sort through all the documents and navigate smoothly through this system, which was totally unfamiliar to us. He also anticipated every step and kept us informed on what would happen next. Aside from being knowledgeable about all the ins and outs, Attorney Cervoni was very responsive to our needs. We highly recommend him.

Cervoni Disability Law

Mr. Cervoni and his firm represented me for a disability insurance claim related to mental illness. He was able to have the ALJ’s unfavorable decision vacated through the Appeals Council which is very difficult to do. Mr. Cervoni and his firm were able to present the documentation to SSA on my behalf so that my case was given a fair and thorough review. I would highly recommend Mr. Cervoni to navigate your claim through an application process that can be frustrating without an experienced advocate.

Awesome Lawyer

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.

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.

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.

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.

As someone who was indigent and homeless at this time one year ago and with several co-occurring medical conditions, I was experiencing multiple challenges around this time last year. Several law practices were not able to take on new cases given the size of their caseloads or their preference for taking a case only on appeal. However, with the Cervoni law practice, he was able and willing to take my case from the time of the initial filing without all of the prerequisites being demanded from other law practices. My case was favorably decided in less than four months. ... Finally, Derek's familiarity with the local DDS and their local SSA offices made for an even smoother process which I would have never been able to navigate by myself. I consequently recommend Mr. Cervoni as the best disability attorney whom one can work with on any given appropriate and suitable disability claim.

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.

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!

I was not disappointed

I was referred to Mr, Cervoni when filing my claim for disability. I was not disappointed and was so thankful to his staff and him for helping guide me through the process. All of my inquiries were responded to timely, he explained the process to me in terms I could understand and ultimately represented me before my appeal before the judge. He was extremely knowledgeable and treated me with respect during the entire process.

VERY HAPPY CLIENT

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.

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!

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.
