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.

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 always was able to reach Mr. Cervoni via telephone, email, U.S. mail or fax, and he answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Mr. Cervoni was able to guide me through the entire process, and, once the process started, he told me what I should expect. I was awarded my Social Security Disability benefits on the first attempt because of Mr. Cervoni’s expertise. I am very grateful that he was able to represent me in my SSD claim.

Social Security Representation

Approximately eighteen months ago we hired Derek S. Cervoni to handle our Social Security claim! Both my wife and I found him to be professional honest, knowledgeable, sincere and kept any promise he made to us!

All of our expectations, questions and concerns were always met! He was very clear and concise regarding how the claim is submitted. He told us there was a high chance that we would get approved, gave a percentage that was reasonable, also said there would be a lot of paperwork! And, trust me there was! He also said it was a slow process!

I really appreciated several key points that made us recognize he was the best choice.

Any promises made were met on time or early. He followed up every few weeks or monthly to advise us of the status.

His representation is the reason our claim was approved! Presentation is everything!

I would absolutely recommend Derek Cervoni!

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.
