On April 29, 2011, the Social Security Administration (SSA) issued a fully favorable ruling for our pro bono client, enabling her to receive Supplemental Security Income and nearly four years of retroactive disability benefits due to her severe psychological impairments. Washington DC associate Megan Hall, under the supervision of Washington DC partner David Bloom, represented our client at the hearing in the appeal of the denial of her application for benefits.  This matter was referred to Mayer Brown through the DC Bar Pro Bono Program.
