Our Success

Our Success Stories

My attorney at LS&G went the extra mile...

Diane V. had a long and productive career as an administrator before she became unable to work due to a combination of severe arthritis, fibromyalgia and depression.

Although she was approved to receive private long-term disability benefits by her insurance company, Social Security was much more difficult for her to obtain. Before she came to Leventhal Sutton & Gornstein, she had two hearings with two different Administrative Law Judges, both of whom turned down her claim and required her to file appeals.

When her lawyer at Leventhal Sutton and Gornstein started to work on her second appeal, it was discovered that Social Security had lost Diane’s entire medical file. As a result, she and her attorney were forced to reorder all of her medical records from over fifteen different providers in different cities going back ten years in order to reconstruct her file for Social Security. Once this was accomplished, Diane had a third hearing…


My attorney at LS&G never gave up...

Steven T. was a young man with a great career as a skilled tile setter until he was injured in two work incidents and a motor vehicle accident. Imaging studies of his cervical and thoracic spine showed that he had multilevel disc disease with stenosis and radiculopathy, and he was no longer able to work in his profession or in any full-time job due to severe pain and inability to use his hands and arms. The evidence showed that Steve had multiple falls, and was barely able to play with his infant son.

Despite the evidence, however, an Administrative Law Judge denied Steve’s claim, and his attorney at Leventhal Sutton & Gornstein had to file a civil action against Social Security in the United States District Court. Based on his attorney’s brief, the Court reversed the decision and sent Steve’s case back to Social Security for another hearing. Unfortunately, the same Administrative Law Judge denied his claim once again. Steve’s attorney wrote another brief to the Appeals Council, which reversed the decision to deny his claim and sent the case back for another hearing before a different Administrative Law Judge…
