About this title:

Synopsis: The Social Security disability application process can be long and difficult. I receive dozens of calls each month from individuals seeking assistance in disability claims. Plenty of legitimate claims are denied, despite the fact that the claimant has a severe and debilitating condition. I am constantly reminding applicants that there is a reason why I do what I do. I would not have a job assisting claimants if all legitimate claims were approved right away. Unfortunately, good claims are denied right along with the weaker cases. When people seek assistance, they tell me what they’ve already done in the claim. After years of practice, I’ve learned that claimants routinely make the same critical mistakes over and over again that can forever destroy their chances of ever collecting on their disability claims. That’s why I’ve written this book. I want to try and assist claimants in avoiding the most common mistakes in the claim process. If you visit my website, you will learn more about the Disability Insurance Benefit (DIB) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs of disability benefits with the Social Security Administration. The rules and regulations can be very complicated. This book attempts to try and educate claimants on how to avoid making critical mistakes that may cost them their claims. For some claimants, the advice in this book may make the difference in collecting thousands of dollars of benefits. For others, this book may make the difference in hundreds of thousands of dollars in benefits over their lifetimes. And don’t forget- if you are awarded benefits, you are eligible for health insurance via Medicaid or Medicare. Such health insurance benefits are critical for anyone with a debilitating disability.

About the Author: Nick Ortiz represents claimants in Disability Insurance Benefit (“DIB”) claims, Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) claims, Disabled Adult Child (“DAC”), and Disabled Widow’s/Widower’s Benefit (“DWB”) claims. These include disability claims under Title II and Title XVI of the Social Security Act. Mr. Ortiz assists clients in filing initial applications and administrative appeals in their disability claims. If the claim is not favorably decided in the early stages, Mr. Ortiz represents claimants in hearings before Administrative Law Judges. Mr. Ortiz grew up in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. He first became interested in the legal profession after participating in his high school’s debate program. He also played a lawyer in a high school mock trial. These experiences led him to become a student in the art of persuasion and argument. With this foundation, Mr. Ortiz went on to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Yale University. He took two years off after college to work in Washington D.C. at the prestigious law firm Covington & Burling as a paralegal. He then went on to attend UCLA Law School in Los Angeles, California. While in law school, Mr. Ortiz participated in the Moot Court Program and the Trial Advocacy program. He also participated in legal aide, assisting the poor and indigent in legal matters. Following law school graduation in 2001, Mr. Ortiz stayed in Los Angeles. After only one year representing insurance companies, Mr. Ortiz realized he did not want to represent corporate entities. He wanted to represent individuals. He therefore joined a small law firm representing injury claimants. By 2004-2005, the cost of living in Los Angeles was becoming outrageous. So, in 2004 Mr. Ortiz sat for the Florida Bar and passed the exam to become a Florida attorney. In 2005, Mr. Ortiz returned to Florida with his wife and practiced law with The Soloway Law Firm. While at The Soloway Law Firm, Mr. Ortiz broadened his practice from representing injury victims to representing injury victims and disabled workers. He learned how to handle a Social Security disability claim from beginning to end, and he learned how to handle short-term and long-term ERISA disability claims. After seven years with The Soloway Law Firm, Mr. Ortiz decided it was time to branch out on his own as a solo attorney. On June 1, 2012, he opened The Ortiz Law Firm. Mr. Ortiz is licensed to practice in all federal and state courts in the great State of Florida.
