Very Pleased With Quality Professional Service

We retained Derek Cervoni to represent me in my claim for Social Security Disability Income benefits. We were very pleased with his service. He is very knowledgable about the SSA disability system, and uses this to his client's advantage taking care of virtually all the aspects of this difficult process. While he basically took over the process, he kept us informed every step of the way with clear and timely communication. This was truly a relief as it allowed us to continue to focus on my treatment with one less thing to worry about. He was also always timely and helpful with his response to questions and requests for further information.

We would absolutely recommend Derek Cervoni to anyone seeking assistance with their Social Security Disability claim.

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. During the hearing with an administrative law judge, Mr. Cervoni was thorough and compassionate. We were pleased when the judge returned with a fully favorable decision.

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.

Was extremely good at updates and answered questions with very quickly. It can be difficult to get through government claims that make it almost impossible to get through. The government wants you to quit. Mr. Cervoni explained to me everything going on and helped get through the process which takes... a long time sometimes. He was patient and informative.
