Wiley Rein Attorney Wins Social Security Benefits for Disabled Client

January 11, 2011

On January 11, 2011, Wiley Rein associate John R. Prairie successfully secured a favorable decision for a disabled client before the Social Security Administration (SSA).  The SSA originally denied our client disability benefits despite being statutorily blind.  After a year of diligent effort, Mr. Prairie succeeded in having the case overturned.  Our client was awarded over five years of back benefits and monthly payments going forward.
