Neil H. Good understands how overwhelming and confusing it can be to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. However, for someone who’s been injured, it’s critical to work with an attorney who understands the application process. That’s why Neil has dedicated his career to making the process as simple as possible for disabled and ill clients across the county. With more than 30 years of experience and over 4,000 satisfied clients, Neil is committed to learning about you and your specific case so you can get the benefits you need.
Neil received his undergraduate degree in finance from Northern Illinois University. From there, he went on to graduate from IIT/Kent College of Law. Initially, his work focused on personal injury, where he tried more than 50 cases to verdict. His first Social Security hearing was in 1992, and in 2000 he decided to limit his practice to SSD law.
Neil is passionate about and experienced in all types of Social Security cases. For example, he’s filed two class action cases in which the Social Security Administration was incorrectly paying claimants their back benefits. His most recent win involved a case in which the Social Security Administration refused to give a U.S.-born citizen a Social Security number.
On the occasion that a client’s case needs to be referred, Neil works closely with personal injury, worker’s compensation, and family law attorneys. He makes sure that his clients’ cases end up in the right hands.
Neil regularly speaks at the National Organization of Social Security Claims Representatives conference on the importance of cross-examining medical experts. He also speaks on topics related to Social Security Disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income to hospital support groups, health groups, township services organizations, social services organizations, community groups, and more.
