Herbert Forsmith’s experience with metropolitan New York City and Connecticut Social Security disability claims

I have been practicing Social Security disability law for over 30 years. I was privileged to serve as a Social Security administrative law judge for 20 years, hearing and deciding thousands of disability cases of every type. If you need help with your Social Security disability case at any stage, please fill out the free claim form to the right and I will respond promptly.

Since leaving the bench in 1998, I have devoted my practice almost entirely to the representation of applicants for Connecticut and New York Social Security disability and other Social Security benefits, including Supplemental Security Income (SSI), before the Social Security Administration and the United States courts. I represent Connecticut and metropolitan New York City disability claimants at all stages—whether at application, first appeal, second appeal, or hearing level.

With over 30 years of experience, I can help you through the Social Security disability process. I will walk you through all of the required paperwork, your testimony and other procedures, making certain that your impairments and limitations as you experience them are truthfully and effectively presented. I will also develop the necessary medical data and opinions, and present the best-supported and most persuasive arguments through the administrative law judge level and, if necessary, to the Social Security Appeals Council.

My principal law office is located in Lower Manhattan at 26 Broadway, 17th Floor, New York, New York 10004. However, I practice and travel to meet clients located throughout the New York City metropolitan area, including western Connecticut.

I invite you to complete and submit the free claim evaluation form on the right side of this page. You will receive a prompt follow-up consultation, and a carefully considered evaluation of your case, without charge.

I wish you well in your efforts to deal with your disabilities.
