Attorney Charlie Hall successfully obtained Short-Term Disability and Long-Term Disability for a client who was uninsured. Client had worked as a factory worker for years. He injured his back in 2006. After surgery, medical doctors prescribed a specific medication that was effective in blunting his residual pain and arthritis in his back. After successfully returning to work for nearly a decade, he suffered from kidney failure and doctors ordered him to discontinue the back medication. With returning symptoms of severe back pain, client was unable to sustain his factory work. He received Short-Term Disability for a short time, but then lost his health insurance. Once he lost his health insurance, the carrier kicked him off of Short-Term Disability. Attorney Hall filed an appeal and lost. Working with the client, he helped him capitalize on free and reduced medical care in the local community. Then, he assisted client to obtain Medicaid disability, winning on the third appeal. After scoring that victory and building up the client's medical records, Attorney Hall supplemented his brief with new arguments and evidence. This resulted in client securing Long Term Disability Benefits amounting to a life-time award of over $300,000.

Attorney Charlie Hall scored a victory for a Social Security Disability client who was on disability for 18 years when Social Security alleged that he had engaged in substantial gainful activity, removed him off of disability, and alleged that he owed over $75,000. Attorney Hall successfully defended the client before an Administrative Law Judge who agreed that the client had not engaged in substantial gainful activity, put him back on Social Security Disability determined that he did not owe $75,000, and found that Social Security should not have frozen his payments in the first place.

Attorney Charlie Hall won Long Term Disability (ERISA) benefits for a client who suffered from severe depression and anxiety. The onset of the severe mental health issues was sudden. Initially, doctors had thought that she had
a neurological disorder. The client had received Short-Term Disability benefits, but after neurological causes were medically eliminated, she was denied benefits. Attorney Hall developed the case record over a period of several months, identifying key information that the carrier had left out of its analysis. After strengthening and supplementing the medical records, Attorney Hall submitted a legal brief in support of her disability, and was able to obtain benefits for the client with a lifetime award in excess of $450,000.
