Attorney Robert Gillikin has spent decades helping social security disability and veterans' disability clients get the benefits they need and deserve. He began his legal career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has since passed the bar in three states, lending to his legal expertise and professionalism. Over the years, Rob has seen first-hand how frustrating and difficult the application process for disability benefits can be. Balancing his legal tenure and skills in social work, he strives to get the best possible results for clients who have been unjustly denied. He prides himself on being a strong advocate for those who feel they have no one in their corner, dedicating himself to ensuring the people who need and deserve benefits get them.
"Out 400-600 case closures, around 18% will be denied. It may seem like a small percentage, but in those denials are real people with real problems. They are at risk of losing their homes and going without lifesaving medical treatment. " - Rob Gilliken
Since 2003, Mr. Gillikin has handled over 7,000 disability claims cases, successfully representing clients before the Social Security Administration and in appeals to federal courts. He also works with hundreds of veterans who've been denied benefits from the VA to get the help they deserve.
