For over 30 years, Robert has been zealously representing people with serious health conditions that force them to stop working.  He has won thousands of disability claims and knows what it takes to prove and collect social security disability and long term disability benefits (the success of each case is determined on its own merits).  Robert will work with your doctors to develop the kind of evidence needed to win.  He is not part of a huge, impersonal law firm.  He gives each client personal attention, answers questions, and returns phone calls.
 
Robert is a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice and has extensive experience in social security disability and long term disability claims.  He has assisted thousands of individuals at all levels of the administrative process, from hearings through the federal appellate courts. 

A published author, Robert has written novels in the legal/suspense genre, several of which have been adapted into film.  Additional information about this aspect of his activities is available at robertwhitlow.com.
