Attorney Gordon Gates and his legal team are highly qualified professionals, and are my #1 recommendation for anyone pursuing disability benefits. I believe I would still be appealing denial after denial if I had tried to go it alone. As it was, my case didn’t even require a hearing! If you are disabled, these really are the people you need on your side! Can’t thank you enough, Gordon, Laura and Beth!

Gordon Gates is the kind of lawyer that you want to represent you. Mr. Gates responded quickly each time I called or emailed. He was compassionate, and tackled difficult issues with kindness but directly. He explained the process in as much depth as you wanted or needed to know. His office staff was equally responsive. I highly recommend Mr. Gates.

I couldn’t possibly thank you enough for all of your hard work and expertise in handling my case. The relief that I have now in knowing that I can pay my bills is tremendous.

I was impressed with the website from the start. I checked other sites and found this one and him the person to go with. I filled out the online questionnaire and didn’t wait long till I got a call from him. He put me at ease right off the bat. He was so responsive via phone and e-mail. It was good to know I could contact him directly.

Gordon Gates is professional courteous and easy to communicate with. He always answered my phone calls, (he answered not an automated system). His paralegal Laura is a wonderful addition to the office. Would highly recommend Gordon Gates to anyone seeking SSDI benefits.


Thank you for being there for me.


Thank you so much for handling my case for Social Security disability. I was so scared through it all & you really helped calm me down. Thank you for gathering everything and putting my case together, so the judge could see how I really am.


I can’t begin to express my thanks for the very professional job Mr. Gates did on my recent social security case. From the very first time that I talked to him I felt very confident in his knowledge and expertise.

He always returned my calls and answered any questions that I had, as well as keeping me informed of the status of my case. One day I called him and when he answered I asked him if it was a bad time to be calling. He answered, “It is never a bad time for you to call.” I was so surprised and thankful because going through the disabled social security process is a daunting task.

Another thing that he did was ask for a bench decision on the day of our hearing. I did not even know that was possible. The judge agreed, and when I walked out of the hearing I knew that I had been approved. I slept well that night, not wondering whether I was going to be approved. That was the best nights sleep since this process started two and a half years ago.

If I can offer any advice, choose Gordon Gates. Don’t try to go it alone. I truly believe that if I gone to him in the beginning instead of waiting until I had been denied twice I would have been approved sooner. Even if you are not sure about hiring an attorney, at least call and talk to him. If you talk to him, I am sure that you will understand what I am saying.

It’s a fact of life that when we are at vulnerable times, we have to make important decisions. And not easy ones. I was fortunate to have found Gordon to help me with my disability application at a very vulnerable time in my life. It was the best decision I could have made. Gordon knows his stuff, is very service oriented, is empathetic and honest, does what he says he will do, and keeps you apprised of the status of things every step of the way. Highest possible recommendation.
