RDBO takes a unique approach in which our attorneys work closely with health care providers, case managers and counselors, as well as the refugees they serve, to ensure that refugees’ cases are presented competently and compassionately. We handle cases at every step of the disability process, from initial application to hearing to federal court. We represent refugees as defined in section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act as well as individuals admitted under the Special Immigrant Visa program set out in Public Law 110.

The social security disability process can be frustrating.  We believe it is important for potential applicants to be realistic about their chances for approval.  We carefully evaluate the merits of each person’s case and suggest alternatives when we do not believe their case is strong.  These alternatives may range from vocational assistance to waiting until a stronger medical record has been established.
