Previous Law Firm Name

  • Sternberg, Newman & Associates

Law Firm Overview

Since 1996, the attorneys of Sternberg, Newman, Shifrin Inc. have been focusing on helping clients get the Social Security Disability benefits that they deserve.

Our expertise lies not only in understanding the complex laws which govern the Social Security Disability program, but in understanding the workings of the constantly changing bureaucracy of the Social Security Administration. This understanding is the key to determining the best ways to interpret the facts of your case, and present them persuasively to Social Security.

For example, the critical hearings before Social Security’s Administrative Law Judges are often held via video conference with an out-of-state Judge. These out-of-state Judges may have little understanding of the realities of life and work here in Northeast Ohio. We will work to ensure that these Judges see the facts of the case as it relates to your life.

At its heart, disability is really about medicine, work and law. Combined, our attorneys bring over 50 years of disability experience in the interpretation of medical histories and cross-examining physicians, expert witnesses, vocational specialists, rehabilitation therapists and the like.

Our large support staff is extensively trained to assist you in processing all the evidence, forms, paperwork and medical records that Social Security demands. At the same time, our attorneys and staff will treat you with the respect and empathy that you and every client deserves.
