Having a hard-working, experienced legal team fighting for your best interests is not just a privilege of the rich and powerful. Dolce Panepinto is proud to level the playing field for working class families and individuals. Legal matters are often very complex, which is why we take a team approach to areas of need for working men and women. In addition to motor vehicle accidents, injuries on property, and construction accidents, our team of attorneys also concentrates on Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, and Unemployment matters.
Dolce Panepinto attorney Phil Urban focuses his legal practice on Social Security Disability claims. Social Security Disability is a federal insurance program designed to provide income supplements to people who are physically restricted in their ability to work because of a disability. Whether you need help filing an initial claim, appearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge for a hearing, or simply navigating the complicated SSDI benefits program, Phil is ready to assist you.
A Buffalo native and longtime NYPIRG campaign organizer, Phil has a passion for helping working class families. “I feel very lucky to have been born and raised in Buffalo’s Black Rock neighborhood. It gave me the work ethic that I now use to help my clients. My neighbors in Black Rock were hard working people like carpenters, plumbers, and roofers, who often sacrificed their health in order to provide for their families,” he explained. “I went to law school to be able to help people just like my neighbors navigate the complexities of the legal system and, hopefully, make their lives a little easier.”
