New York, New York, July 2, 2018 – Bressler, Amery & Ross, P.C. congratulates Susan George for her successful pro bono work on behalf of No Greater Sacrifice (NGS), an organization that honors the sacrifices of our military members by investing in their children’s education.
In 2017, our firm had another opportunity to partner with NGS. This time we helped a veteran, who was severely injured while on active duty in Afghanistan, regain his Social Security disability benefits which had been discontinued. Although our initial application and request for reconsideration of the initial decision were denied, in May 2018 we obtained an expedited hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. The ALJ ruled in our client’s favor and awarded the veteran his monthly disability benefits, including back pay from when we initially filed his application in March 2017.
