Since 1982, when Morgan and Weisbrod pioneered as specialists in the field of Social Security Disability law, we have helped thousands of individuals obtain the Social Security Disability and Veteran’s Disability benefits to which they were entitled, including many who came to us after losing their cases with other firms.  Here is what our previous clients have to say about the experience of trusting us to help them through their claims process:

“I want to thank you for helping me with my case.”

I want to thank you for helping me with my case.  I couldn’t have done it without you.  I want to also give a special thank you to Ms. Hernandez, who is kind, passionate, and very attentive to details.  If I know of someone who needs a disability attorney I would not hesitate to recommend you guys!  Konrad W., Terrell, TX 2015

“For us, it felt like our lives had been saved in a way”. Marc M., 2014
In 2008 I applied for disability benefits because I was very sick and had been unable to work for some time. Because of ongoing medical treatment and no insurance my wife and I had fallen into considerable debt. Naturally, I was turned down and because I was depressed I just gave up. Later, out of desperation I asked my brother-in-law, who is an attorney in Houston who he would recommend to challenge the S. S. Administration and that is when I met Mr John Driskill.

Even though I had lawyers in my family (my children’s grandfathers as well) and have generally had good experiences with attorneys I never thought that in the profession as a whole there was much ‘heart’ or compassion for their clients until I worked with Mr Driskill.  I reapplied because I had let the six-month period expire and was turned down again. John Driskill then took my case and began to guide me through the appeal process.

I had become even sicker over the two years which had passed from the start of my first application and quite literally almost died. I found myself facing one of the most conservative judges we could have drawn, and at the time, my disease was not one that is usually debilitating unless it reaches a certain stage. Suddenly while waiting for trial, a dangerous tumor was discovered and my doctor wanted to remove it right away. I was unbelievably stressed because I had waited so long for the trial and it would have to be postponed again if I went to surgery. It was a very tough and major operation and would be a long recovery. I told Mr Driskill I wanted to postpone the surgery and he didn’t think it was wise because of the surgeon’s recommendations. I went ahead with it and all of the cancerous tissue was removed perfectly requiring no chemo or radiation. It was about five weeks before I could even get up but during that time Mr Driskill worked hard and used every ‘trick in the book’ to put documentation and testimony before the court.

I was a business owner for several years and I know how easy it would have been for him to have just postponed the court date and set my case aside because there would have been other clients with pressing matters. But instead, he assessed the the situation and saw an opportunity to approach the Judge with information which could make the court understand the seriousness nature of my condition. He pleaded with the court to accept my petition for 100% disability status without even requiring me to show up and it was granted!

I recognize there are relatively few people who can grasp what my wife and I went through (and of course she deserves her share of praise for her part, but that’s for a different forum) and what a relief it was to finally get the financial help we needed. For us it felt as if our lives had been saved in a way. And please don’t think it was all about the money for John Driskill because I was amazed at how little they actually allow the attorneys to make on a social security disability case. To me, it seemed like chump-change 🙂 for the amount of work he did.

As melodramatic as I know it sounds, my wife and I were not any more fond of any of our own family members as we felt towards John and his staff (shout-out to Justin!) and we still feel the same way.

Don’t go through the Social Security disability process without the experts!

I want to thank my great attorney, her assistants, and all the other legal professionals at Morgan and Weisbrod, for their hard work and dedication they performed on my behalf. They treated me with the utmost professionalism and as a client who needed help. They took on my case from a previous law firm, and took the necessary time and steps to thoroughly review and prepare it for my disability hearing. My social security benefits were finally approved with the help of this law firm. I would recommend Morgan and Weisbrod to anyone who is trying to go the disability process alone.

Veteran receives favorable award after hiring VA disability expert Paul Burkhalter and his team.
With deep gratitude, thank you and your team for everything you did for my brother, Wes H.  I realize how much time, effort, skill and professional experience are required to be able to walk into a hearing and have a decision made without any testimony or evidence.  Kyle has been extremely helpful, responsive, and compassionate in guiding us through this process.  As a first point of contact, I felt such comfort in talking to Bill.  He took so much time with me and gave me hope for my brother.  Wes’ and my meeting with you was amazing.  Your years of experience, compassion, and knowledge came through at every step.You and your team have been absolutely instrumental in changing the lives of our whole family.  We love Wes and have always supported him.  There have been many years of stress, fear, and sadness.  Now we have the comfort of knowing that he will always have the financial and community support that is so important for any individual to function and live with dignity.

Thank you for being there for us.

Has Your Request for Social Security Disability Been Denied? Contact a Skilled Social Security Disability Attorney Who Doesn’t Back Down From a Fight.
“I would just like to take a moment to thank the team at Morgan & Weisbrod for all the professionalism and effort that they put in to win my disability case. My wife and I have been partners in our highly successful residential home building and repair business since 1978.

Around the summer of 2009 I began to notice that my health was failing and being one to rarely EVER go to a doctor I kept on driving nails until it got to the point that I was not even able to climb into my truck to go to work. I had to quit the first job that I was under contract to perform for the first time in my career. I eventually went to the ER and discovered that I had a major herniated disc and multiple large kidney stones. I have been going back and forth between my Urologist and Neurological Surgeon since January 2010. Being unable to drive and barely able to ride in a car, I hired one of those TV disability attorneys that bombard us every day from the comfort of my own bed. BIG MISTAKE! This company was located in California of all places and I ended up having to request most of my medical records myself and fax to them. They sub-contracted a Dallas attorney to represent me before the Administrative Law Judge and I didn’t even have the opportunity to discuss my case with him until he was almost late for the hearing. Well, you can imagine how that went.

I not only lost my initial request for disability, but my ALJ case as well and then when that was finished my attorney said that they don’t handle cases beyond the ALJ stage. In the meantime I had been diagnosed with a host of debilitating health problems with the primary one being a failed back/chronic regional pain syndrome among others. I would never be able to return to my lifelong work and I couldn’t give up on trying to receive the disability that  I was owed and had paid in during my 30 year career amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars to Social Security.

I saw all the loud mouthed attorneys on TV shouting about how much money they had won for their clients and then I saw an ad from a soft spoken, professional attorney by the name of Carl Weisbrod. Don’t let his commercial fool you! Carl is a bulldog when it comes to standing up for your rights and he doesn’t back down from anyone, especially expert witnesses and even Judges.

Carl took my case and not only won a new hearing from the Appeals Council “which rarely ever occurs” he then won my case before the same ALJ in a new hearing. Carl and his team will answer all your questions promptly, courteously and even if it takes submitting 6000 pages of evidence (as in my case) they will do it to get you every dime you have coming.

My only regret is that I didn’t contact Morgan & Weisbrod first. Remember…you pay in social security, it’s not an entitlement and it’s your right. Fight for it!”
