Meet Social Security Disability Attorney Dan Rosen

November 10, 2015

A spotlight on the professional team members who work for you at Nash Disability Law.

One sure way to bring a smile to Dan Rosen’s face is to ask him how he likes to spend his free time. He will tell you with a laugh that as one of Chicago’s top Social Security Disability lawyers, a father of three and a community volunteer, free time is not really a concept he is familiar with.

Dan will mark his 10th anniversary with Nash Disability Law in January. As a Case Management Team Attorney he oversees Social Security Disability claims at the initial and reconsideration levels. He is a very involved and hands-on kind of guy. He meets frequently with his clients to obtain exactly the right kind of evidence for their cases, to insure they are fully prepared, and to give them the best chances possible to win their cases.

“I like helping clients navigate a cumbersome, bureaucratic process that can easily become overwhelming,” Dan says. “Most of our clients are dealing with many stressful events at the same time as their disability claim – financial stress, medical stress, family stress. So, when someone receives a 10-page form from Social Security that says it must be done in 10 days ‘or else,’ or was just denied for the second time and is ready to give up and needs representation, I like to be able to put the person at ease and reduce their stress, even if just a little bit.”

Dan also steps up to volunteer his time as an advocate for the disabled. He is working to improve the laws and services that touch their lives. He is a member of the Standing Committee on Disability Law for the Illinois State Bar Association, a former chair and vice-chair of the Chicago Bar Association Social Security Law Committee and a former member of the City of Evanston Mental Health Board, where he helped to oversee mental health organizations that provide services to city residents.

Dan enjoys reading. But these days instead of the latest The New York Times bestseller he is more likely reading “The Adventures of Captain Underpants” to his six-year old son. That is when the two of them aren’t watching University of Wisconsin sports together. Dan, a native of Philadelphia, attended the UW, and he is now a dyed-in-the-wool Badger fan. And that, too, puts a smile on his face.
