Testimonials from Real Clients

Thank you, SO MUCH, for your outstanding help. My claim was quickly approved without the need for an appeal! I especially appreciated Nadine’s professionalism and how quickly she always responded to my questions. You have a wealth of very helpful information on your website, too. I would STRONGLY suggest that anyone in need of SSDI immediately contact you PRIOR to trying to file a claim on their own. Many thanks!!!

This is long overdue, but I felt that it must be said. Mr. Forsmith is by far the most compassionate, understanding, knowledgeable, and efficient attorney I have ever have the pleasure of meeting. Neither my parents nor I truly understood the procedure. Mr. Forsmith demonstrated endless patience as he guided us through the entire process, answering all our questions and addressing each of our concerns. Not only was he very thorough and willing to make time for us, but he was very easy to contact and communicate with, something we greatly appreciated. Our case was that my father was initially denied Social Security benefits for his numerous and ever-growing health conditions. We then applied for an appeal with Mr. Forsmith as our attorney. I still remember the day of the appeal? it was pouring rain and my parents were a bundle of nerves. Mr. Forsmith?s presence changed that? we were easily reassured. With his help, we were able to receive the financial aid that we so desperately need. I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am to this man, how fortunate I was to have met him, after all these years. Thank you, Mr. Forsmith. Our family remembers and loves you for all you did even to today.

Everyone told me I would never win my case on the first try, especially for a back injury. Not only did I win my case the first try, it was won in under 6 month’s time. I would like to thank you and your associate for such a pleasant experience. You turned a very trying time for me into a much-needed reassurance that everything would turn out okay. I would recommend you to anyone who help in these matters. Again, I would like to thank you.

I finally won my case after a denial at first and then we sent an appeal. I waited a long 4 years to get a court date. My entire case was very long and frustrating. I called Mr. Forsmith and Peter Caldone a lot. I had a ton of questions because I had a hard time understanding how the system works and what to do next and etc, etc,. Even though I had so many questions, Mr. Forsmith probably had a headache after talking to me on the phone each time. But Mr. Forsmith and Peter worked hard and were the best at putting things together and answering my questions. I thank them both so much for all of their hard work.

If you are reading this then Herbert Forsmith should be your first call—or if like me, your second, after your case was denied. My mistake. Herbert Forsmith and his staff were wonderful from start to fully favorable decision. Can’t thank them enough.

I cannot thank Herbert Forsmith and Peter Caldone enough. I just won my SSDI case after 5 short months, on the first try. They were patient, supportive and very informative. I couldn’t have filled out all the mounds of forms without them. They are always available and so speedy and professional, but most of all they are gems in a very confusing process!

Upon meeting Mr. Forsmith, he was very warm and welcoming. After our meeting for an initial filing for disability benefits, I was able to call and still speak to Mr. Forsmith directly without delay. He is knowledgeable and straightforward. I would recommend Mr. Forsmith to everyone in this universe.

Mr. Forsmith was my attorney and he won my case. I didn’t think that I would win because my case kept getting denied. I had given up. Mr. Forsmith took care of everything for me! He explained everything to me and I would tell anyone to let him be your lawyer. Thank you.

I needed representation in applying to the SS Administration for disability and after doing some research, decided on Herbert Forsmith’s Law office. After meeting with Herbert and Peter Caldone, I knew I had chosen the right firm. Their knowledge, attention to detail, preparation and overall thoroughness demonstrated the depth of their experience. I felt very comfortable with them and I left that meeting with peace of mind. My case was successful and I thank you both Herbert and Peter from the bottom of my heart for guiding me, being there for me when I needed you. I am very impressed with your services and would highly recommend you to anyone who is unsure of choosing a lawyer. SIMPLY THE BEST.

After several years of my Social Security Office losing all my records, another lawyer failing to timely file my appeal, I found my Angel and the greatest attorney I know, Mr. Forsmith! Thank you so much, Atty. Forsmith for all your caring, patience, wisdom, and friendship. Thank you too, Mr. Peter Caldone, the other angel with limitless expertise. Without YOU, Herbert Forsmith, I would NEVER have gotten a favorable decision on SSI, no less than on SSDI too! My family and I will always be grateful for your genuine kindness, diligence, and endless efforts that got the job done! Thanks for being the BEST! We highly recommend you. God Bless.

I had heard such horror stories of people applying for disability and how long it took. Mr. Forsmith seemed to have sped things up for me. I hired him to file my appeal. Our hearing was less than a year later. I was approved and had a check within a week of my approval letter. The thing I appreciated the most is that there was always someone available to take my calls and speak to me from his office. They are all very polite and patient and down to earth. Thank you Mr. Forsmith and team!

Speaking with Mr. Forsmith regarding my case eased my fears of the disability process. Not only did he and Mr. Caldone understand and completely explain the logistics of the process, but they understood the emotional and physical aspects of my disability. Thank you. Very thorough and accommodating.

On this Thanksgiving Day of 2011, I have been truly blessed by having family, friends and Mr. Forsmith in my life. He helped me through the disability process one step at a time and his caring staff was also very fast in answering the proper forms to fill out. Then Mr. Forsmith went over with me EACH and EVERY question I had, and walked me through the process in a very caring and sensitive manner. Mr. Forsmith won the case and I am ever so grateful that he was MY attorney.

Mr. Forsmith took my case after 2 other lawyers said I didn’t have a chance of winning. We asked for a hearing and at the hearing Mr. Forsmith explained to the Judge my disabilities and problems. After testifying, the Judge agreed with Mr Forsmith.

Mr. Forsmith’s home page says it all, ” Experience, Knowledge, Empathy”. I highly recommend this gentleman. Thank you Mr. Forsmith.

Attorney Forsmith is, in my opinion, a leading lawyer in the field of Social Security, and there is no one else in the New York tri-state area who I would go to with a question about matters of law and procedure. He knows how to help, and is also friendly and compassionate.

Thanks for showing compassion for my disabilities and the merits of my case and vowing to stay with it until the end.

My initial consultation with Mr. Forsmith was very formidable and enlightening. Although it was found I was ineligible for disability benefits currently, the reasons were explained to me fully and the actions necessary to achieve acquiring benefits were clearly identified. Mr. Forsmith demonstrates full knowledge of the way the Social Security Disablity system works and I look forward to having him represent me in the future regarding these matters.
