Greeman Toomey PLLC – A Social Security Disability Law Firm

James was very personable and highly professional. He really showed that he cared about my situation and worked hard to get the best possible outcome.  I would definitely recommend James as an honest, personable, and professional person to work with you.

My experience at Greeman Toomey was a really positive and enlightening one. I felt really secure with James and he explained everything to me in layman terms so I knew exactly where I stood as far as my individual claims and the possible combination of the three claims I had filed previously being re-opened & how much S.S disability & SSI I was entitled to.  Although there are no guarantees in life, James and Patrick really stepped up to the plate for me.  Even the worst case scenario of the judge’s decision wasn’t a bad deal at all.  I’m hoping for a homerun which I have worried about my whole life. It just took its toll on me. James Greeman is in charge of the courtroom and spells it all out outside. I would defiantly recommend Greeman Toomey.

~IG 9/12/2017

Two years ago my wife heard from another attorney that Greeman Toomey was the way to go. We came here for help with our social security disability benefits that we paid for and were very happy to see that she received her benefits at trial. So I thought I would use Greeman Toomey as well and low and behold I won my claim too. James Greeman was my hearing attorney and I like him a lot. He was excellent, down to earth and personable. I couldn’t have asked for better representation.

My brother was represented by the Greeman Toomey law firm.  We were so impressed with this firm.  After 5 years of battling with my brothers disability claim, I gave them a call and just after 6 months he was at an ODAR hearing and approved on the spot to start receiving benefits.  I don’t believe we could have done it without them.  Thank you so much!

~KD (7/12/2017)   

James H. Greeman represented me better than I could’ve dreamed! He and his staff removed all of my stress and took care of everything! Mr. Greeman has a brilliant legal mind. My accident changed my life forever, but James’ abilities have set things right. Social Security Disability laws had me so overwhelmed, I almost gave up. I’m so glad I called Greeman Toomey.

~KK (7/12/2017)

“This is my testimonial on Greeman Toomey’s performance on my case. It was done efficiently and was treated fairly.

~P.S. (4/16/17)

“As a client of James Greeman, my life was changed. Three years ago I was diagnosed with a dreadful, career ending disease. During my case, Mr. Greeman fought for me and not only helped me receive the social security disability for which I was entitled, he negotiated a life altering amount of back pay, which helped out family stay in our home and continue to provide for ourselves. When, or if, you are faced with an occupational or physical crisis, your best ally is just a phone call away!”

~R.B. (4/18/17)

“I am appreciative and grateful for my attorney James Greeman and the service I got from his team during my case. I felt respected and I got prompt service from the receptionist to himself. I will one hundred percent recommend anyone that has a case to contact James. For the last two years, I had no problem from anyone of his team members. They were compassionate and showed understanding and decency. “


“The work that James Greeman preformed for me was amazing. I was supported and they listened to me. Mr. Greeman made it a point to stand by my side. I would highly recommend him.”


I was in bad shape and in a great deal of pain. A friend told me to contact James Greeman. I was denied SSI twice and James Greeman took my case. He took charge and eased my mind. I knew the moment I met Mr. Greeman that he was on my side. I am very pleased with the way he handled my case. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.

~W.H. (4/5/17)

“I am a mental health case manager and was involved in a SSI hearing for a client of mine who was represented by James Greeman. I do not think my client would have been as successful in her participation without Mr. Greeman’s assistance. He was frank and respectfully challenged her which helped her better advocate for herself.  He was able to advocate for my client and her needs while recognizing the impact her symptoms have on her presentation. It was a very successful representation and will encourage my client to seek help in the future. “


“When my son was in grade school, I applied for social security disability. My son was on an IEP, yet, he was suspended from school several times a week. Due to his behaviors, I was unable to find daycare to keep him while I worked. We were denied. My son’s symptoms continued well into adulthood. As a mother, you have dreams for your children becoming independent and successful. No matter how hard we tried, no matter how much support (emotional and physical) we were not successful. My son spoke with a doctor that recommended that we reapply for SSD. For over four years, we were denied. One day, I looked up SSD lawyers. The Greeman Toomey law firm immediately called me back. I was told to get verification of disability; a doctor to say that my son could not work. I already had these forms. But, now I had someone to listen, understand, and work me through the process. Greeman Toomey & staff kept me updated by mail. Always returned my calls within 24 hours, and listened to me vent and complain about my son’s behavior (even though it had nothing to do with their job.)

With Greeman Toomey involved, my son won his case. Post hearing, Mr.Greeman meet with us and provided more information regarding support services that are available. I am thankful for their services. As a mother and Psych Registered Nurse, I know that we would not have been successful without them. “


“I write this testimony as appreciation for James Greeman who represented me in my disability claim case.  He is a talented and loyal attorney.  I recommend him to others who might have a similar case.  Thanks you sir for a good job.”

~M.U.  3/30/17

“I would recommend James Greeman, he helped my husband with his denial of SS benefits and after his passing away James continued on his case and helping me to sort through all of the mess and winning the case to help secure my children’s future.”


“I am very happy with the job the Greeman Toomey law firm did for my daughter.”

~T.R. 4/27/17

“The most I like about the services is the constant contact and that they do their job with honesty.  They explain the situation to me and return my phone calls promptly.  They always keep calling and remind me of the hearing multiple times of what to bring, where to go and what time I should be at the hearing.  The staff is kind, nice and helpful.”
