Wiley Rein Attorney Wins Social Security Disability Benefits Appeal

March 30, 2011

Wiley Rein attorney Jillian Volkmar acquired a favorable Social Security Administration (SSA) Disability decision on March 23, 2011.  Our client had been unable to work due to mental illness, back injury from a fall and finger amputations among other painful disabilities.  After Ms. Volkmar filed an appeal with the Office of Disability and Adjudication & review, the SSA found our client disabled as of December, 2008 and therefore eligible for past and future disability benefits.
