What our clients say about us

We appreciate the opportunity to help you get the benefits you deserve

Cliff Weisberg has been an indispensable resource

I am an oncology social worker who helps cancer patients apply for disability. Cliff Weisberg has been an indispensable resource in assisting our patients through the complicated system of social security disability. I have complete confidence in his knowledge and expertise and have referred many patients to him over the years. In addition, his professional seminars on the social security disability process have been invaluable to me and my social work colleagues. Cliff is extremely ethical and really cares about helping people get disability as quickly as possible.

I recommend anyone with ALS to reach out to Clifford

In January 2018, I was diagnosised with ALS. I found Clifford Weisberg thru ALS of Michigan. Clifford helped my wife and I plan/navigate the process and timeline of social security. I recommend anyone with ALS to reach out to Clifford.
