Osterhout Berger Disability Law, with offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Jacksonville, FL, is a boutique law firm dedicated to the representation of disabled persons in connection with their claims for Long and Short-Term disability claims and claims for disability benefits under the Social Security Act. Our attorneys have a combined 100+ years of experience representing clients in their claims against insurance companies and at all levels of the Social Security disability process.
In our Long and Short-term Disability practice we represent clients all across the United States and consistently obtain very favorable settlements and court decisions for our clients who have been wrongly denied disability benefits by their insurance company or employer’s HR department. We have counseled and represented over a thousand such clients.
We handle administrative level Social Security claims local to our two offices, in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and Ohio, as well as Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, and Louisiana. Our dedication and compassion for our Social Security clients is demonstrated by the 20,000+ favorable decisions we have obtained for our clients.
And, our Appellate Department is frequently engaged by other attorneys and non-attorney representatives to appeal unfavorable ALJ decisions to the Appeals Council and/or federal courts in every federal district court in the United States, as well as a few United States territories. To date, we have successfully handled more than two thousand appeals. In this respect, we stand alone as the only law firm in the country that provides full-service appellate representation, as well as staff training for our referral sources as requested, on behalf of attorneys and non-attorney representatives.
