“At first I was apprehensive about applying for SSDI. After visiting BR&R, they assured me that I had a good case and they would be with me every step of the way. Although I was denied at the application and appeal levels (which they told me was normal), I felt confident as we went to the hearing stage. I was well prepared for it. The lawyers at BR&R made an excellent opening statement to which the law judge had no questions that he really needed to ask. After a year of being nervous, I was finally approved. I cannot thank everyone at BR&R enough for what they have done for me and my family! “

– Dave M.
