The Law Offices of Russell J. Goldsmith, and its founder and principal, Attorney Russell Goldsmith, is admitted to practice law in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and is committed to providing effective legal representation throughout New England to those injured and disabled. We have four (4) offices conveniently located in Maine Massachusetts and New Hampshire to serve you. However, we are able to handle most matters by way of phone, mail and email and meeting in one of our offices is thus unnecessary. And should it become necessary to attend a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, understand that whether your hearing is being held in Massachusetts (whether that be Boston, Lawrence, Worcester or Springfield), Manchester, New Hampshire, Brattleboro, Vermont or Maine (Portland, Augusta, Bangor or Presque Isle), Attorney Goldsmith will attend that hearing with you personally should that prove necessary (as many times Attorney Goldsmith is capable of obtaining a favorable decision by way of an argument brief to the presiding judge). Attorney Goldsmith does not simply send one of his underlings to attend the hearing, as is common place with other firms or lawyers. Likewise, you can rest assured knowing that with his 34 years of experience, during which time he has handled 1000’s of cases before the Social Security Administration, that your case will be in good hands.

Whether it’s an initial application for Social Security disability, a reopening of a past disability claim, a request for reconsideration, a request for hearing, reopening of a claim from years ago, request for review of a hearing decision before the Appeals Council or an appeal to Federal District Court, we’ve been there to help New England’s disabled for the past 34 years. The earlier on in the process you obtain the assistance of an experienced disability attorney the sooner we can provide you with the advice and assistance you need to ensure your case gets on track and stays on track. The intricacies of the Social Security regulations require the assistance of a professional who can help you then understand, as early as possible, what needs to be proven. The failure to be in the right kind of treatment for purposes of both documenting the severity of your condition and your attempts to get better, or the failure to provide sufficient details in your application materials concerning how your condition impacts your ability to function can ultimately prove fatal for one’s disability application. Simply misunderstanding what some of the questions in the application materials are asking for, or being less than clear in one’s responses, can serve to cause problems down the road when the claim is being reviewed: whether it be at the initial application level or at the hearing level. Moreover, the failure to obtain the appropriate supportive medical documentation from one’s medical providers to corroborate the nature and severity of one’s medical conditions support can likewise prove problematic down the road.
