The combination of the current recession and the aging baby boomer generation has dramatically increased Social Security Disability applications across the United States in 2011. Since most individuals who apply for disability benefits are initially denied, more potential clients will need to request hearings before Administrative Law Judges to have their claims approved. Therefore, the need for lawyers in this area of law is greater than ever.

This Social Security Disability Claim Primer, by nationally recognized New York Social Security Attorney Troy Rosasco, is the perfect starting place for lawyers new to Social Security Disability claims or to those who need a refresher on the basics. It will provide attorneys with the concepts and law they need to know to represent their first Social Security Disability client. Mr. Rosasco provides a fast- paced and dynamic PowerPoint presentation filled with both humor and practical advice. Whether you practice in California, Florida or Alaska, this is a must watch for personal injury, workers’ compensation or other attorneys looking to break into this growing area of disability law.
