I highly recommend Disability lawyer Richard Seelig. I was clueless about the disability process, Mr. Seelig helped made the process easy, and helped me every step of the way. He always gave me his input on everything. If I had to do this whole process again I would definitely pick him as my lawyer. Thank you to Mr. Seelig for helping me with my case! He is an honest trustworthy lawyer who cares about his clients.
