They are very knowledgeable and put my mind at ease helping me understand each step of the proces of me getting my disability. I would highly recommend Steve Casper and his staff to anyone seeking social security disabilities.

Yvonne Charles - Dayton Ohio

...I had initially been denied by SSDI and my case went to hearing. Steve guided me along each step of the way and prepared me by helping me understand what to expect during the hearing process. My case was complicated and he sifted through a huge file, reached out to doctors and created a portfolio documenting why I deserve the benefits and how my conditions tie back to specific SSDI listed conditions.
