Fortunately, Mr. Salzman has an impressive track record of handling cases that have been denied, and often denied more than once, and ultimately prevailing. As a St. Petersburg Social Security disability lawyer, Mr. Salzman knows how to speak the language of Social Security; it is not enough to merely recite the medical condition of a claimant, it is essential to explain how that medical condition impacts the claimant’s life.
