Attorney Jonathan L. Pearson

I am the managing attorney at Pearson Disability Law, LLC. I practice Social Security disability law exclusively and have helped thousands of disabled individuals in the Chicagoland area receive benefits. I did my undergraduate work at University of Delaware and received my J.D. at New England School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts.

I have family members who have disabilities and know first-hand how difficult life can be. Because of this I have over the years developed a passion for helping people in need and trying to make a difference in people’s lives. Not many folks understand the impact of debilitating physical or mental impairments on one’s own life and on the lives of family and friends. I understand and am here to help navigate people through the complicated process of applying for and obtaining disability benefits. People come to me sick, desperate, frustrated, angry, and hopeless due to their circumstances. My goal is to help them through this trying time and get them the financial and medical assistance that they deserve.

I personally manage all of our cases and as such you will have an attorney working on your case every step of the way. You will have an attorney, not a “legal advocate,” appear at your hearing before the Administrative Law Judge. Whether you are in the process of applying for benefits or appealing a decision in your case, there is never a bad time to call me for help.
