Robert Gillikin

Disability Attorney

Robert Gillikin specializes in helping disabled individuals get the Social Security or Veterans’ Disability benefits that they need and deserve. He began his legal career with Peirce & Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and witnessed first-hand how frustrating and difficult the disability benefits process could be. He prides himself on being a strong advocate for disabled individuals, and is especially challenged by cases on behalf of those who feel they have no one in their corner, and are up against powerful adversaries. Since 2003, Robert has handled over 3,000 disability claims cases, successfully representing disabled clients before the Social Security Administration and in appeals to federal courts. Despite his large case volume, he still insists on meeting with each client individually, and remains an accessible and caring steward throughout the disability claims process.

“There is a big difference between hiring a ‘claims advocate’ and hiring a real attorney. Not only are we more skilled at knowing the law, but we roll up our sleeves and do the actual work of getting you a resolution. Many so-called ‘advocates’ will simply mail you a packet of claims forms. Getting your client those benefits they desperately need to pay their medical bills, keep their homes, feed their families – often people who are close to the edge anyway and really need somebody to go to bat for them – is incredibly rewarding.”
