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!

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.

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 extremely kind, conscientious, attentive and thorough. He took our calls and explained very clearly the processes and procedures. What we could not 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!

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.

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!
