Several years ago I went from being a high-functioning adult to suddenly being permanently incapacitated and disabled. Anne LaPorte compassionately, patiently and successfully helped me through the Social Security Disability process with a level of care that was so understanding and professional that it's virtually indescribable. Ms. LaPorte and the LaPorte Law Offices team via the work they did in presenting my case, in my view, without exaggeration, absolutely saved my life. With regard to seeking help navigating the Social Security Disability system, I'm not sure there's a better firm available. I feel blessed and I'm infinitely thankful to everyone who has helped get the help and assistance I need in this horrible, horrible time in my life.
I just completed my appeal for Social Security Disability and was represented by Anne LaPorte of LaPorte Law firm. I strongly recommend Anne to represent you in your disability case. It's a lengthy process and this law firm is very familiar in all the phases. I found Anne easy to work with and very patient. She's smart, studies your medical history, and coordinates all the medical records and inputs to Social Security. I had a large medical history and Anne worked through all that to provide the key points she presented in the case. We also met to coordinate my court appearance. We won our case in 30 minutes. I was surprised and impressed ! A few years ago, at the beginning, I was uncertain as to the whole disability claims process and hiring a lawyer to represent me. Looking back, I can tell you that a lawyer is absolutely required to succeed. The para-legal to us "You came to the right place" and she was right.
Anne was instrumental in my case being successful. Her knowledge in the appeal process was one of the main reason I won my case. If I had to do it all over again Anne would still be my #1 choice to be my attorney.
In November 2015, after one year of cancer treatment (chemotherapy and three surgeries) I was faced with the challenge of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance. I knew I was not up to managing the complex application process. We found Kevin LaPorte on line, with high recommendations. From our first meeting, Kevin and Sylvia Marichalar, (the firm's legal assistant) were kind, supportive and totally professional. They remained so throughout the process, guiding us through the maze of paperwork and translating the "legalese." I especially appreciated Kevin's support in preparing me for my court date in front of a judge. Kevin accompanied me to the hearing, calmed my jitters. I have received a favorable judgment and believe it is fully due to the help and support from Kevin and Sylvia. I recommended a good friend to their office as well. Thank you Kevin and Sylvia!

We want to thank you for your support, expertise and professionalism in handling our daughter's SSI Disability claim. When we called you, we got an immediate positive response, and it gave us the first feelings of hope we had in over a year. You guided us through the process, returned all of our calls promptly, and answered all of our questions fully and clearly. With your expertise and kindness, we certainly felt like we were in excellent hands.
Most importantly, you treated our daughter with respect and dignity during a process that can be difficult and belittling for a claimant. It was very important for us that our daughter be treated as whole and not as a "disabled person." We very much appreciate the respect and support you gave to her. From working with you, it is clear that your work comes from your heart. We felt that our daughter's case was important to you; in fact, that she herself was important to you. It has been wonderful to work with an advocate who was on her side and who gave our family such needed support through this process.
