Summary

Attorney David Ferrari has advocated in over 1,116 Social Security disability hearings in 46 states and the District of Columbia since 2005. As the Managing Attorney for the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman's Social Security Disability Law Department, he personally supervises each case to be sure every claimant gets the best chance possible to receive benefits.

David is a cum laude honors graduate of Nova Southeastern Law School in Florida where he was the 2L class Moot Court Champion. He was premed prior to switching to the law, and started his law practice as a doctor’s lawyer, handling all the legal matters of the doctor and his medical practice.

Attorney Ferrari stays on the cutting edge of SSD law by attending every National Social Security Claimant’s Representatives, (NOSSCR) conference each year, since 2009. He is a Sustaining member of NOSSCR and has served it as a lecture moderator and a volunteer lobbyist in DC on SSA issues and funding.

From July 1, 2015 to Sept 30, 2018, Attorney Ferrari was the Chairman of the Social Security Law Section National Board of Directors of the Federal Bar Association, of which he served as Secretary, 2011-2013. Chairman Ferrari was unanimously recommended by the Board to his position.

“I have devoted most of my professional career to representing disabled people before SSA. Disabled people need an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer because too many times SSA denies claims simply because the system is overloaded."

We have won a large minority of cases at the first and second paper appeal stages, without the client going to a heairng , but most will to see a judge. David has won 92.2 % of cases closed from 2018 to present as of today 7-12-19.

Practice Area

Fees
  • Contingent Fees
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    Social Security limits ALL attorneys and non attorneys to 25% of your back benefits. Some firms ask you to pay costs even if they lose- we do not unless we win. I guess when we have won 92.2% of our cases, we are not worried about asking you to pay the costs too.
