Cara Gallucci, a disability lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, got a Taunton man over $27,000 for past due benefits for his social security disability claim, and another $1,200 per month going forward. The man suffered from multiple conditions, including depression, bipolar disorder, and COPD. After he was initially denied disability benefits, he called the Taunton disability lawyers to get the Social Security Administration to reconsider his claim.
Attorney Gallucci and her support staff at d’Oliveira & Associates walked him step by step through his claim. Due to her experience handling Social Security Disability claims, Attorney Gallucci got the man the income that he deserved without having to go to a hearing in front of an administrative law judge.
Attorney Gallucci stated that “this gentleman worked very hard throughout his career, but was unable to work further due to his illnesses. We were able to have his case approved without having to go to a hearing, as we provided the Social Security Administration with all of the records necessary to approve his case.”
