Social Security & Veterans Disability Client Testimonials
Hill & Ponton, P.A. has helped over 30,000 people secure the benefits they deserve. Here are just a few of our satisfied clients:
I will try to keep this brief, but wanted to inform you of how wonderfully pleased I am with the assistance that I have received from my Case Manager, Mary Ersland. Your firm has been representing me since June, 2014 and I received a letter from the SSA titled “Notice of Decision – Fully Favorable” today. From the beginning, Mary contacted me promptly and has responded to all of my requests extremely fast. She has been nothing short of polite and profession, representing your firm as a true professional. Your firm is truly fortunate to have such a caring professional working tirelessly and in turn solidifying the foundation of your firm. I could go on and on, but will leave you with these words, “The work that Mary has done for me not only secures peace and stability for me, but more importantly, for my family! I am deeply grateful and will suggest your firm to anybody that I come into contact with that may be in need of assistance that you provide.”
If you’re looking for assistance with a Social Security disability claim, or any other services that this firm can provide, look no further. They have represented me since June of 2014 and I received my approval letter from the SSA yesterday that I was approved. I’m not saying your results will be the same as mine, as all situations are different, but I can guarantee you that you will be treated with the utmost professionalism, empathy, sympathy and kindness in an expeditious fashion. I can not rave enough about Hill and Ponton and their amazing staff. They work as a team and are absolutely amazing!
The ultimate dream, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
I am at a loss for words to explain how I feel about the work that Mr. Hill has done for me.
I am privileged that Mr. Hill choose me and now I am sitting in my house because of the wonderful work that Mr. Hill and his firm did for me.
I am very blessed to have worked with Mr. Hill.
Thank you for being my attorney-but any one of choices I could have made could have ended up being my Legal attorney-mostly I want to thank you for your guidance, for your understanding, your interest in me, your belief that I was worth being your client when many other legal firms rejected my case because of unbelief of what happened to me in the Arm Forces. I am so proud of you for listening to you and observing your marvelous skills and tactics on my case that took me 42 years to resolve and win. Where were you 42 years ago when I needed you? (lol) But you made an impression on me that softened the stress and encouraged me to belief in you. Even though we really didn’t have that much contact which I attribute to your legal skills, I am stronger and better person and confident because you were my attorney, though it’s not over yet. I just wanted to thank you in advance.
Also, Natalia was so wonderful through this whole process. She not only did her job splendidly, she really helped, reassured, cared, and helped us through a difficult time. I really want to tell someone about her superior work. In fact, I would like to spread the word about your whole office. Where can I send a complimentary letter? The bar association? Local News? Where would it do the most good? I really think people should know. If you could help guide me in this endeavor I would greatly appreciate it.
I am contacting you regarding my SS Disability case. It has now been completed by the ALJ and the decision was a “Fully Favorable” one. Thank God and especially yourself for all your help with my case. I want you to know that I really appreciate your legal assistance with my case and your team at Hill & Ponton. Especially Ms. Noemi has been great comfort to me during this long, very hard time. I have been through a lot of family trouble and marriage problems due to my disability and finances and have been in tears and called Ms. Noemi and she always made me feel that I will come out on top through all the hard times. She is truly a special lady and has been of great emotional support to me and I want you to know how much that means to me. Thanks again for all you have done for me. I will certainly pass the word and refer your company with the highest regards!
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. Without each of you, a favorable decision would not have been possible. I filed twice on my own for benefits and was denied both times. I had all but given up hope until my Neurologist, recommended that I contact you. Even with all the medical records showing that I was disabled it wasn’t enough. Our family has been in such a financial hardship for almost two years, but thanks to your dedication to my case I am receiving benefits. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, a huge weight has finally been lifted.
I chose your law firm based on reputation when I finally accepted the reality that I would never be able to work again because of my disability. It was an emotional time coupled with the many physical challenges that comes with lupus. I first called your office in February 2009 and spoke with Michelle. She was understanding and supportive and after a series of questions, she scheduled an office appointment. I came to your office and found that Michelle was assigned as my case manager. It put me at ease, as much as possible, because of our earlier phone communication. It is often difficult for me to focus but Michelle moved at a pace to help me understand the process and shared all the necessary information. I knew after that visit that I had selected the right law firm and an added bonus was the good fortune of working with Michelle. She is professional, competent, and kind. Throughout the process she communicated with me and kept me updated. I have shared my sincere appreciation with her but I want you to know that she did an exemplary job of handling my case and I am most grateful.
Thank you and your staff for helping expedite our request for disability. It is really a God-send, and a blessing. We are very grateful.
Thank you so very much for all your efforts. To have met with us at our mobile home in Florida along with all the guidance you gave us has been beyond the call “of duty.” It will give us a sense of security to have these monies.
Dear Carol, …on behalf of my son, my wife, and myself…THANK YOU so wholeheartedly. To you and your friendly staff in handling our not so easy Social Security and Veteran Administration claims. We have been greatly satisfied and rewarded with your high level of professionalism, expertise and of course, that personal touch that sets your office apart. Not to mention positive results…beyond our expectations. We proudly recommend your services to all in our COI. Our prayers and desires for your lives and office to continually be safe and blessed.
I know that my husband got his 100% because of the wonderful persistence of Carol and all she did and for her big and wonderful loving heart for these forgotten veterans. There are really no words to express our gratitude for your firm, especially Carol. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to such wonderful people. Blessings!” (recovery for veteran: retro of $80,000 monthly benefits of 100% permanent and total)
Mrs. Ponton, I am writing to inform you of how I am extremely satisfied with the hard work of Mary and Shelly. Mary was my case manager and I could not have been given a better person. She has extreme knowledge and dedication to her job/clients. I know I am not the only client she oversees but made me fell as if I was. She always returned my emails or phone calls as well as obtain documents needed for my case. I really did want to give up quit after being turned down and Mary would not let me. I had no hope and given up and Mary used her experience and caring attitude to uplift my spirits and regain confidence. Shelly prepared me for my hearing and made sure I was aware of what was going to happen at the hearing. She looked over my documents and familiarized herself with my case. I felt like she knew more about me than I did. Shelly really went over my documents to ensure she was prepared for the case/hearing. I have traveled the world and dealt with my people/organizations, Mary and Shelly are by far the most dedicated and professional individuals I have encountered. My family and I are really thankful for the hard work both of these professionals exhibited. I will recommended Hill & Ponton to my family and friends.
My name is Vickie Clark. My husband, Robert Clark, was diagnosed with liver cancer back in March 2009. He was a Vietnam veteran. I had been telling my husband back in 1992 to apply for VA benefits but he would not do anything. Finally, when he got diagnosed I decided to take action. I was looking on the Internet for a law firm that specializes in veterans benefits. I called the law office of Hill and Ponton. After Hill and Ponton contacted me, they were so professional and so caring. I had no idea how to do any paperwork and so I hired them. I can tell you that I did not do anything, they took care of everything. If I know of any veterans, I have referred to their office. Thank you so much Hill and Ponton for all the work you have done to get my deceased husband’s benefits.
Mrs. Ponton words cannot describe what I feel this moment!! I’ve waited TWENTY TWO years for this!!!
Atty. Hill, I want to let you know how much I really appreciate your diligence and patience concerning this matter. It was very stressful and frustrating for me and I did not want it to go on any longer than necessary. Without your assistance this may have taken forever. Again, thank you and I pray that our paths will cross because it would be great to thank you in person.
Mary, Thank you so much. You are the best and I will tell everyone how great that you and Hill and Ponton have treated me as we try and move forward with our life. Thank you so much and God Bless you.
Mary, on behalf of myself & my family I would like to thank you and your firm for assisting me through the disability application approval process. If I know anyone in a similar situation I will gladly recommend your firm & especially you.
Please let me express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work you and your staff provided me during a difficult time in my life. I want you to know that you have inspired me with confidence and understanding of my situation. Also, please accept my apologies if at times I seem impatient or misunderstanding of the extensive process and time required to win my disability claim. This in itself has been a life saver for sure and I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me. Please extend a very personal thanks to Ms. Natalia Jofre for the dedication, time, caring and professional attitude on my case. She was very patient and understanding. A real credit to your firm. KUDOS!
I would also like to tell you how happy your firm has made me. Mary handled my claim with care and respect! She listened to my whining and crying; even returned my calls within a day.
Although this may be an overlooked task in today’s business world, I feel that I must bring to your firm’s attention the outstanding service I received by your representatives throughout my claim process.
I am, of course, very delighted to have had the pleasure of retaining your firm in this pursuit and by my experiences with another firm regarding my long term disability, I can safely say that professionalism is evident here while missing in other firms. The professional and courteous attitude, expert knowledge, and patience in handling my specific issues were very important to my complete customer satisfaction.
