Olinsky Law Group Case Results

What really matters are the results of your case.

Sure, we focus on understanding all the rules, navigating a complex system and taking your case through every appeal.

But in the end, it’s about fighting for your benefits.

So what kind of results do we get? Here are some examples.

*Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Sometimes you have to go to the Appeals Council.

Suffering from major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, back problems and diabetes, a woman files for Social Security Disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income.

She went to a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. She had a non-attorney representing her. The judge denied her claim.

Then she hired Olinsky Law Group. Howard Olinsky took her case to the Appeals Council, which ordered a new hearing.

The next time, she won her case. Not only that, but she won years of back benefits covering all the delays, going back to when she first reported her disability.


Never go into a hearing without a knowledgeable representative.

A 45-year-old woman could no longer work because of multiple health problems: depression, anxiety, torn ligaments, arthritis, left knee disorder, right knee disorder, ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux, obesity and carpal tunnel syndrome.
She filed for disability benefits. When she went to a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge, she had no representation.
The judge denied her claim.
Olinsky Law Group took over her appeal. Howard Olinsky took her case to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
The Federal Court found the ALJ’s decision was full of inconsistencies. It ordered a new hearing for the woman.
This time, she won a fully favorable decision and years of back benefits.


Sometimes you win when you get a second hearing.

No longer able to work because of multiple health conditions, a woman took her case to an Administrative Law Judge.
She suffered from mood disorder, personality disorder, bipolar disorder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative disc disease, neuritis and scoliosis.
But the judge denied her claim.
With the help of Howard Olinsky, she went to the Appeals Council.
The Appeals Council found the ALJ did not properly evaluate the medical evidence on her psychiatric disorders and called for a new hearing.
In the second hearing, she won full benefits.
