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, was always available to answer my calls, regularly kept me updated on my claim's status, and made me feel very comfortable knowing he was handling everything.

In addition, he was very receptive to my concerns regarding how my physical limitations impacted getting him the information required to complete my file and went above and beyond to accommodate me. I was shocked and immensely grateful when he notified me that my claim had been approved mere months after I hired him! I cannot recommend Derek enough and will continue to refer friends to his practice.

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. Your career ends in embarrassment because you can’t do it anymore. You aren’t dependable because your body and mind or both have betrayed you. You can’t enjoy being around others because of overwhelming physical, or mental issues that overtake your joy and your ability to function. Others help you with daily functions.

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.

Great Law Firm

Derek Cervoni assisted my wife and I with our claim for Social Security disability benefits after a brain aneurysm. Derek was one of 3 lawyers referred to us by Brain Injury Services, and after researching our options, we opted for Cervoni Disability Law practice. And very pleased we did.

We were told that navigating the Social Security Administration process for disability in Virginia was very time consuming, tedious and at times, confusing. Derek Cervoni’s knowledge on the process and also the inner workings of the administration, made the process effortless. He took the time to explain at length (more than once) how the process works, what to expect and when to expect it. It was a long process, but Derek Cervoni was there every step of the way, and always responded to questions/requests in a very timely fashion.

Thanks, Cervoni Disability Law, and thanks to Brain Injury Services of Northern Virginia.

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. I definitely do not think I would have gotten my SSD if I had to use another lawyer because Derek was always on top of things and preparing for the next steps. THANK YOU MR. CERVONI AND ASSOCIATES!!!
