“I called inquiring about what it would take to get my disability/SSI. They told me I had to simply apply the first time, and I would most likely get turned down and then call them back and they would handle it! So I did, and boy am I glad I did! Just a few days ago, I was awarded my SSI for mental illnesses. Samantha J. Ball took on my case head on!! She was a really great attorney as well as a very nice person! At the same time, she was perfect for my case I know that!!! I’m very grateful for her, she helped me so much!! I cant stress that enough. She was perfect!!!
