Gregory A. Hicks secures Social Security benefits for disabled client

On January 20, 2010, after considering arguments made by Gregory A. Hicks at a hearing before an administrative law judge, the Social Security Administration determined that Mr. Hicks’ client was entitled to past due benefits since December 2005. Mr. Hicks successfully argued that his client met all of the requirements under federal law to obtain disability benefits.

Mr. Hicks’ client suffered from numerous problems including back pain, hip problems (including a hip replacement), shoulder pain and diminished eye sight. After the client unsuccessfully tried to obtain the benefits on his own, he sought Mr. Hicks’ help. Because of Mr. Hicks’ vigorous advocacy at the hearing, his client will now recover approximately $40,000 in past due disability benefits from the federal government.
