About Levine Benjamin Law Firm
When you’ve got a serious health problem—because of a chronic condition, a workplace injury or a car accident—it throws your life into chaos and uncertainty.
You don’t have the energy to fill out complicated benefits applications and fight insurance companies. But you need financial help to survive.
Since 1964, Levine Benjamin Law Firm has been proud to help people with health problems and financial worries in Toledo, Traverse City and across Michigan and Ohio.
We’re the largest Social Security disability law firm in Michigan. We’ve helped more than 80,000 people win benefits.
We offer personal help: everyone applying for Social Security disability with us speaks directly with one or our managing partners, Joe Houle or Gary Bimberg.
Unlike many firms, we start helping you from the very first step of your disability application.
This is about more than money. It’s about your independence and dignity.
From applying to appealing, we help you every step of the way.

When a health crisis leads to a money crisis, the experienced attorneys at Levine Benjamin step in to help. We handle several types of disability and injury law.
Social Security Disability

The attorneys at Levine Benjamin Law Firm start with your initial application and stay with you through every level of appeals.
Get Help with Your Disability Application
Most attorneys don’t help with the very first step in the Social Security disability process: building your application. They tell you to apply on your own—and come back when you’ve been denied.
At Levine Benjamin, we start with your initial application and stay with you through every level of appeals.
Our attorneys can help you apply online, by mail or in person. We take care of the details, so your application has the best chance of success.
The earlier you get us involved, the better.
The attorneys at Levine Benjamin help you maximize every form of benefits available to you.
Do I Have More Than One Kind of Case?
Sometimes, an illness or injury qualifies you for more than one kind of compensation.
When you’re trying to reclaim your life, you don’t want to miss out on any form of financial assistance available to you.
Because we have four different disability and injury practice areas, Levine Benjamin attorneys can spot situations where you could get multiple benefits:
- If you were hurt at work because of someone else’s negligence, you could have both a personal injury and a workers’ compensation claim.
- If your workplace injury will leave you unable to work for a year, you could have both a workers’ compensation and Social Security disability claim.
- If you have private long-term disability insurance, you can receive payments both from that and Social Security disability.
You can start by getting a free evaluation of your situation.
Long-Term Disability Claims in Michigan
If either you, or your employer, paid for long-term disability insurance , you expect it to be there for you when you need it.
Insurance companies sometimes have other plans.
They drag their feet, or outright refuse, to provide the financial assistance you’ve been paying for.
But when you’ve been sidelined from work because of major health problems, long-term disability benefits can make a huge difference for you. They can preserve your financial security.
This is too important to let the insurance company ghost you.

Michigan Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
When you’re an employee in Michigan, you’re supposed to be protected by workers’ compensation benefits when you are hurt at work.
Workers’ comp is a deal made between the interests of workers and employers: Employers are required to carry workers’ comp insurance so you get fast money, free medical treatment and peace of mind after a job injury—and your employer avoids getting sued.
The problem is that those insurance companies, and sometimes employers, don’t always cooperate with workers’ comp claims. Paying you, after all, costs them.
But you don’t have to let them get away with shortchanging you.
One of Levine Benjamin’s Michigan workers’ comp attorneys can make sure you receive the maximum benefits available to you.
Get Payment You Deserve after a Car Accident
A car accident can take everything you were doing in life and everything you were working on and planning—and shove it aside.
Now you’re dealing with injuries. You’re dealing with damage. Even your transportation just got more complicated.
But the other driver’s insurance company may try to refuse you, or slip through a smaller settlement while you’re stressed and just want the whole ordeal to be over.

KEEPING YOUR CASE MOVING DURING THE CORONAVIRUS
“From the beginning…to the end, I was given attention and understanding. When the time finally came for court, COVID-19, aka the coronavirus, hit us, and (we) ended up having to do a telephone hearing. Claire (the attorney) never wavered. Thank you again for…winning my case. I feel validated and heard.”Margaret Ramirez on Facebook
