Mr. Horne is amazing. I have a rare disease and been fighting for disability for 2 years when he took my case.
I had over 5000 pages of medical records and he went through every single one of them and highlighted the important details, But I also went and interviewed five of my doctors. I won my case and all back pay. Thank you!

Mr Horne went to bat for me and I was approved for my disability the first try! He is a patient and kind man who truly cares about his clients. Highly recommend!

Mr. Horne was instrumental in getting me approved for my VRS retirement. From the first meeting, I felt completely confident in his abilities to represent me, and he did nothing but surpass my expectations. I have already recommended him to several people needing assistance with disability, and will definitely continue to do so in the future.

I tried the Virginia retirement system on my own and was denied again and again. For my final appeal I hired David Horne and I have to tell you that I could have never done what he did. He made them see medically all of the pain I was dealing with and the detrimental effects that were occurring personally. Without him I would have lost my benefit but with him representing me I was FINALLY accepted as disabled. His fee is not a waste of money and I highly recommend you contact him and see what he can do for you with the Virginia Retirement System. Knowing what I know now I should have used him early in the process, but I had to learn my lesson. You won’t be disappointed!!!!!!!
Claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Motor Vehicle Accidents and other Personal Injury (PI)
We understand the financial stress disability from injury and illness place on our clients and their families, and consider this in the fees we charge. In Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims and claims for personal injury (PI) such as motor vehicle accidents, no legal fee is paid unless benefits are awarded.
Claims for Virginia Retirement System (VRS) Disability
Long Term Disability (LTD) – Workers’ Compensation
We will evaluate other types of claims for injury or disability and try to structure a fee that considers our client’s circumstances and the likelihood of success. In many instances we are able to structure a fee where a substantial portion of the legal fee is paid only if benefits are awarded. Please call us for a fee quote.
An Experienced Disability Attorney Can Help
Winning a disability claim involves a complex process requiring knowledge of the law and regulations, and the presentation of medical evidence often using expert witnesses. We provide diligent and aggressive representation through the administrative process and at disability hearings.
Most claims for disability involve both legal and medical issues. We gather medical documentation and work closely with our client’s physicians in developing proof of disability.
When Do You Need a Lawyer?
It is often best to retain an attorney at the beginning of a claim. Some clients retain our services during the initial application process. Some clients engage us after benefits have been denied.
Mistakes can be made by a client when filing an initial claim or during the appeal process. Our goal is to get your claim back on track. In some cases the evidence submitted during the administrative review process is the only evidence considered by the court on appeal.
We Maximize Overlapping Benefits from All Claims
We maximize benefits and compensation from all available sources. If there is a claim for a work injury or personal injury, and a claim under a disability program or plan, applying the regulations and law is complicated. Disability programs and plans, and claims for personal injury and worker’s compensation frequently overlap.
We can represent you in your Social Security Disability (SSDI) claim, and other types of disability and injury claims such as claims for Virginia Retirement System (VRS) Disability, long term disability insurance (LTD), motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury (PI) and workers compensation.
