Reviews and Testimonials for Derek Cervoni

October Case

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!

Acquiring good legal counsel is crucial in successfully navigating this process. Mr. Cervoni is an excellent attorney in this regard. Derek completed and filed all necessary paperwork, gathered supporting information from my doctors, kept me aware of the status of my claim, patiently and accurately answered my questions, and was with me during my hearing before the social security administrative judge.

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.

I highly recommend Mr. Cervoni!

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. Most importantly, anytime I called with a question, he either answered the phone right away or he called back me back very quickly and all my questions were answered. Mr. Cervoni won my disability benefits on the first appeal! Once disability was awarded, I was bombarded with mail from both SSA and SSI that at times contradicted themselves. Even though Mr. Cervoni had already been paid, he took the time and helped me sort through the letters to make sure I completely understood what was happening. It was always a pleasure speaking with Mr. Cervoni. He always made me feel like my case was important to him. He never rushed speaking on the phone so that he could move on to the next client. He is polite and professional and truly deserves 5 stars of excellence.
