My Work in Social Security Disability Law as a Disability Lawyer

I have represented Social Security disability claimants since 1977 when I spent a year as a VISTA attorney with the Milwaukee Indian Health Board. At the end of 1977, I opened my own law office.  I gradually concentrated more and more on Social Security disability representation until I now practice exclusively in this area.

I regularly write and speak about Social Security disability issues to other lawyers, advocacy groups and the general public.  The two-volume law book I wrote and update annually – Social Security Disability Practice – is considered by many attorneys to be “the disability book to buy if you can only afford one.”

The two brochures I have written, “Social Security Disability and SSI Claims – Your Need for Representation” and “Preparing for Your Social Security Disability or SSI Hearing,” are in use all over the country.

I have been a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) since 1980.  I served on its Board of Directors from 1988 to 2001, and was President of NOSSCR for the 1997-98 term.

I received my law degree from the University of Wisconsin.  I may be reached at the Law Offices of Thomas E. Bush, 310 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 930E, Milwaukee, WI 53203, (414) 765-9333, 800-924-0465, or e-mail me.
