Disability Rights

Since its inception, The Canto Law Firm, LLC has been committed to empowering individuals with long and short-term disabilities.  To this end, the firm provides practice areas in the following areas of law:

Social Security Disability Appeals

The Canto Law Firm, LLC is here to help you obtain the Social Security Disability benefits for which you qualify.  Typically, this includes Retirement, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (RSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  If your claim for disability has been denied, you have the right to appeal the decision de novo before a Social Security Administrative Law Judge.  Retaining counsel to prepare your medical file, submit the necessary briefs, and practice your testimony for the hearing are essential steps towards a favorable decision.

Support Broker Services

The Canto Law Firm, LLC can also assist you in managing your Community Pathways Waiver for Self-Directed Services sponsored by Maryland’s Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA).  This program allows individuals with developmental disabilities to manage their own budget to fund a daily program targeted to meet their personal life goals.  For more information about the Community Pathways Waiver, please click here.

Workers’ Compensation

If you have been injured on the job, please contact The Canto Law Firm, LLC to discuss your possibilities of obtaining compensation from your employer.  If your claim has been denied, you may have to request an administrative hearing to prove that your injury was caused on the  job.  The firm appears before both state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Labor, to adjudicate workers’ compensation claims.
