“LSGMI got my disabled son SSI disability benefits and helped our family move out of a shelter into an apartment.”
Ivana, a domestic violence victim, was living in a shelter with her four children. Her seven year old son Shawn was diagnosed with severe emotional and behavioral problems, epileptic episodes and learning disabilities due to the violence he experienced in the home. LSGMI helped Ivana successfully appeal the Social Security Administration’s denial of Shawn’s application for SSI disability benefits. Shawn was also awarded over $16,000 in retroactive benefits which made it possible for the family to move out of the shelter into their own apartment.
