How to Win Mental Health Disability Claims - Part 1
Show Notes

What are proven strategies you or a loved one can use to win a mental health disability claim?

This is part one of a two part episode in which I interview Scottsdale, Arizona attorney Jeffrey Herman about how he approaches the challenges of representing deserving claimants who are struggling with mental health issues.

In part one, Jeffrey and I go over the basics - what are the indicia of a winning mental health case, what evidence you need to win and what convinces judges that our client no longer has the capacity to reliably work.

In part 2 of my interview, which you can find here, we dive deeper into questions about what evidence is the most compelling and how do address problems like self-medication with alcohol or drugs.  We also talk about the non-verbal cues you need to send to the judge to position yourself as a reluctant but deserving disability claimant.

Jeffrey R. Herman has been practicing disability law since 2013 after graduating from Concord Law School in California. He received his Bachelor's Degree in English from Queens College in 2003 and he uses his command of the English language to draft persuasive briefs to help his clients win their Social Security Disability claim.

Jeffrey has a lifelong exposure to the Social Security disability system.  His father, Stephen Herman, is a retired attorney who practiced Social Security Disability law for over 30 years. Before he completed law school, Jeffrey worked in his father's practice where he learned the in's and out's of the SSD application and appeal process.
