Read What Our Past Clients Have To Say:

Dear Attorney Mazur,

After working for 33 years, I found myself disabled and I needed to go out on long-term disability. I had no idea of the process and was very frightened for myself and my future. I lost much more than my health. I lost my confidence and my ability to work. I was recommended to Attorney Sheryl Mazur to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Attorney Mazur explained the process to me in detail. I didn’t know how I was going to get through the long and complex process but Attorney Mazur guided me at every step of the way, was easy to talk with and has a great demeanor. She introduced me to Emily, her expert paralegal who would handle the paperwork and follow-up for my case and was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and always responded in a very timely manner. Emily always kept me informed, answered my questions and let me know what to expect. Attorney Mazur and her team are compassionate and tireless workers for the most vulnerable members of society. Attorney Mazur is the very best in the business! She got my Social Security Disability the first time and she called me to let me know that I was approved and followed up with all the paperwork.

In closing, I have and will recommend Attorney Mazur’s services to others in need. Attorney Mazur is not just an attorney but a brilliant, well-spoken, hard-working and compassionate advocate. I will always be forever grateful.

Thank you.

Dear Ms. Mazur,

I am writing on behalf of George my significant other, and myself to commend you and your staff for the extraordinary service provided throughout the process of applying for Social Security Disability benefits for George. From our first telephone contact with intake and thereafter, we were treated with courtesy, respect and warm welcome.

Being able to rely on you to share information, complete forms, intervene with Social Security personnel and generally negotiate the “system” for us proved to be a stress reliever beyond measure. At all times questions were answered comprehensively and accurately and the level of reassurance was both pragmatic and encouraging. George and I felt able to contact you whenever we needed and calls were always returned promptly. On occasion we were surprised and grateful to hear from you during evenings after you had already put in long days of work. That kind of affirmation is of inestimable value to clients, especially ones such as ourselves who were dealing simultaneously with other “professionals” lacking such a sense of compassion and ethics. We will be forever grateful for the referrals you offered when needed which provided choices and carried no pressure or judgment.

George was recently approved for Social Security Disability benefits, which is a life-changing event for him (and me) and will assure that he is able to maintain an independent life. Both of us have no doubt that without the experience and availability of your law firm, we would have not been successful in this quest.

Our appreciation and gratitude will continue and you will remain in our hearts. Again, thanks for everything.

Yours most sincerely,


To Sheryl and the whole staff, thanks so much for all your help. I can’t thank you enough for all your help! You got me a prompt settlement from Social Security Disability and continued to represent me when SSD tried to nail me for an overpayment charge, I didn’t have to pay back a penny! Thanks again.

I came to Mrs. Mazur’s law firm with a Social Security problem that no other law firm would handle. At my initial interview with Sheryl she also echoed the sentiments of her colleagues, “I don’t handle these types of cases,” but she accepted the challenge. Needless to say we went to court and Sheryl was victorious. I cannot thank her and the firm enough for the great work that they did for me and my family. I wish nothing but the best for Sheryl and the wonderful people who work with her.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have always been so fearful that she [my daughter] would be lost if I were to die and she was left without any resources. The approval would never have been resolved had it not been for your perseverance and action.

Ms. Mazur and Associates:

Just a note to say, I’ve never met such a dedicated group of team players as all of you. The professionalism, respect and concern shown to me by each of you put me at ease and was/is very much appreciated. Thank you! — C.O.

Dear Ms. Mazur:

I want to thank you guys so much for helping me get my benefits. You were very helpful and did 110 percent to win my case. — N.C.

Working with the Sheryl Gandel Mazur firm has been a pleasure since my first telephone call to their office. Before I even became an “official” client of the firm, they were more than willing to answer my questions regarding the Social Security process, which greatly appeased my concerns. Ms. Mazur and her staff handled my claim with efficiency, responsiveness and caring that ultimately resulted in a quick and successful conclusion to my claim. Thank you, Ms. Mazur and staff, for making this process as smooth and as comfortable as possible! — J.D.

Dear Ms. Mazur

As you are aware, my sister currently of age 61 has been awarded her Social Security Disability Disabled Adult Child benefits. It would not have happened without your help. Your professional skills and ongoing belief in my sister’s disability carried us through two appeals. Your ability to present the medical aspects of our case surely made the difference in our success.


Richard K.

Dear Ms. Mazur:

Dear Sheryl:

I want to thank you so much for helping me with my Social Security case. If it wasn’t for you and your staff, I don’t know what I would have done.

Thank you again,

Gary G.

Dear Ms. Gandel Mazur and Associates:

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you and your entire staff for your assistance in helping me with my disability case. Your concern and dedication to my case was evident during the entire process. I was very impressed by your professionalism and the kindness that you and all your staff showed to my wife and me. Once again, thank you, and please know that I would highly recommend you and your firm to anyone who needs assistance as I did.


Tim D.

Dear Ms. Mazur:

I’ve had few things in the past few years to be happy and thankful about, but your superb assistance has been just terrific — no it’s been great! You were unlike so many of your colleagues. You offer genuine compassion, empathy and hope, a rare combination indeed. Words can’t fully express my deep gratitude and appreciation. You are all very special people. Thanks for making me feel special too.

Tom R.

Dear Sheryl and Staff:

Thanks so much for all your efforts in representing me in my disability claim appeal. I am sure I could not have done that without your help.


Rich Z.

Dear Attorney Mazur:

This is a long overdue thank you note. I hope it’s not too late though. I’m really thankful for all the help you and your staff have extended to expedite my Social Security claim. Your staff are all professionals and were kind with their dealings to me. More power to you and your practice. Stay healthy.

Sincerely yours,


To Sheryl:

There is not much to say that will tell you everything we always want to say for everything you did for us. Thank you. God Bless you all from someone who will never forget you.

Jose I.

Dear Mrs. Mazur:

Words are woefully inadequate to express my level of gratitude. I have to mention, in case you forgot how you refused to let me abandon the case when I attempted to, how you remained hopeful long after I had given up, as I did at the hearing. And I won’t forget how you sent me to the social worker, without whom we certainly would have lost the case. Your idea. Many, many thanks for winning my case.


Cheryl F.

Dear Ms. Mazur and Staff:

My best, M.F.

Thank you for your help. Couldn’t have done it without you! — G.S.

I don’t know where to begin to thank you. I do not know what I would have done without you. — A.C.

I am so happy that you helped my son get disability benefits on his father’s account. Before we came to your office we had no idea that he was entitled to these benefits or that these benefits existed. Now he can afford his rent and live independently. — L.M.

Thank you for your support in preparing my disability claim. I believe your firm’s professionalism was the reason for my expedited approval.

I would also like to thank your staff as their attention in preparing the forms necessary for my claims was a major impact on approval. Your entire staff treated me very well and was very informative and professional. — F.M.

It is hard to find the words to thank you for what you have done for me. Thank you just seems so inadequate when you have given me back my life, my independence, my freedom and my sense of self-respect. I literally do not know what I would have done without you. What you have done for me changes my whole life. — M.B.

THANK YOU!! Your office always responded to all our questions and made this process tolerable when it is so long and difficult. We never knew we would be on the other end and you made it possible to get this case finished. — R.W.

Thank you for the wonderful job that you and your staff did for me. I put off applying, but with your help, I was approved in two months! I never would have been able to get benefits so quickly without your assistance. Please send me some business cards so I can recommend you to other people. — P.S.

You guys did a beautiful job. Your firm gave me such personal care that I did not need to worry about my case. Your firm was professional and very caring. I was completely comfortable in your hands. After struggling with my case on my own for so long, your office was successful in getting my case approved very quickly. Thank you again. — P.V.

Thank you for your professional advice in helping me to get my Social Security benefits. I would have given up if not for your help and encouragement. — M.L.

I do really want to thank you for all the help and support during the process of my applying for disability — your compassion and thoughtfulness was so very much appreciated! I am so pleased that you were recommended to me and after our dealings I can certainly see why! When I hit a roadblock and didn’t know what to do, it was only by the expertise of you and your office that things were able to progress along swiftly and accurately. In short, what I’m trying to say is: thank you, thank you, thank you. — C.L.

Thank you so much for all your help over the past couple of years, for both L.K. and myself. Here are a couple of bracelets that I made for you in memory of our appreciation. Thanks.— D.K.

Dear Mrs. Mazur,

I would like to thank you for seeing me through five years of hell dealing with Social Security. In the very beginning you were the only one who truly knew the circumstances and law. It was because of your knowledge and persistence that I even got the opportunity to explain my personal situation to Judge O’Leary. Your explanation of my trial periods of work, made Judge O’Leary understand that I wasn’t at fault. As he said, “I get it.” This turned into a fully favorable decision in my behalf. Thank you again for lifting a “huge” burden from my shoulder. I can now get on with my life. God bless you, and thanks again for sticking with me to a great end. — A.C.

Ms. Mazur,

You are one of the best professional individuals I have ever met with. I found you in the yellow pages. I liked your ad. You and your staff went 150 percent for me. Thank you for your help. — C.E.

Thank you for all the help I received from your office. Your office was very supportive and always returned my phone calls promptly. I was very pleased with the service I received. A special thank you to Diana who was wonderful. The award of my benefits will be a great help to me. Now I can go for medical treatment. — S.M.

I spoke with an associate today 10/11 at 5:15 EST enquiring about disability benefits my children received through my ex-husband. I just want to once again thank her for all her help and knowledge she gave me regarding my situation. I apologize, I did not get her name! I so appreciate when people go above and beyond to help you out! — S.H.

Dear Sheryl,

Thank you very much for all your help with my disability claim. There should be more caring ladies in the world like you. I will keep you posted with my LTD benefits. — M.C.

Dear Sheryl,

Thank you so much for all the help you’ve given us these past months! It was a pleasure to meet you finally — we’ll keep our fingers crossed for positive results! Have a nice holiday weekend. Thanks again! — J. and J.L.


Just wanted to say thanks to you and all your staff for all of your hard work. — M.R.

Dear Ms. Gandel Mazur,

On behalf of the staff, board members and clients of the Mental Health Association in Passaic County (MHAPC), we would like to thank you for the advertisement laced in our Toast and Taste for a Cause ad journal. It is individuals like you who helped make this event the huge success that it was. It was truly a pleasure to begin the summer on such a positive note. We are looking forward to making the next Toast and Taste an even greater success and hope that you will be able to join us next year.

Dear Mrs. Mazur,

Words cannot begin to thank you and your wonderful staff enough. If it wasn’t for you, I would still be getting pushed around by Social Security. They have done everything they can — lose paperwork, ignore phone calls, temporarily stopped my medical coverage and my monthly checks. I could go on and on for hours. No matter how much they pushed us around, you were always there to push back and came back victorious after a very long and tiresome battle with SSA. You and your staff were always kind and caring, always willing to answer any questions we may have and never gave up on us. Thank you so much to you and your wonderful staff for sincerely helping us when others showed us the door. We couldn’t have done it without you!
John F.

Sheryl and Jackie,
Thank you for all you did! — F & S.S.

To All

Your thoughtfulness is appreciated more than you know. Thanks for all you have done.
Love always, G.L.

Dear Sheryl,

Thank you very much. We did not expect to see D’s case resolved that quickly. We would recommend you, to anyone.
D and RT.

Mrs. Mazur:

My benefits come regularly on the same day every month and it has been a big help. I am still trying to get back on my feet. Thanks to you and your staff. — G.C.

Dear Mrs. Mazur and staff:

My Social Security benefits have helped me out tremendously. I can now afford to go for medical treatment and pay my rent. I was very pleased with your legal services. — A.P.

I’d like to express my gratitude for the handling of my case which was done with nothing short of perfection. I have often stopped to thank my lucky stars that I was referred to your practice. — J.S.

Thank you for everything. I really appreciate your help. You did a great job! — M.R.

Thank you for what you did for us. You made a big difference in helping my daughter get better and get on with her life. — R.M.


Thanks a lot for all the work you did on my case. All of my benefits went through and I really appreciated your help. — TM

Thank you and your staff for all that you have done for us. I would certainly recommend your firm to anyone looking for a Social Security Disability attorney. — C.P.

Dear Mrs. Mazur,

I was lucky to find an attorney like you. Because of you, my son still has his father. With my medical coverage I am now able to get the treatment and help that I need. I always come in contact with other people and I would gladly refer them to you. — S.I.

Dear Ms. Mazur, Ms. Sandy and staff:
Thanks everyone so much for all of your help. Getting benefits has made a big difference in my life. — C.T.

Thank you Ms. Mazur for everything you’ve done. With sincere appreciation and warmest thanks to you. — M.B.

To all — Jackie, Amy, Sheryl and the entire team,

Thank you and your wonderful staff for all your hard work to help me obtain my Social Security Disability. This has already helped to make life better for me. — M.F.

We received the paperwork and check regarding the SSD decision. We want to thank you very much for your efforts in helping us resolve this in an expedited way.

Again, thank you!

Regards, P.

Thank you for working so hard to fight for me. Your professionalism and kindness, and diligence with me and my case could never be matched. Your whole team is awesome! — C.K.

Thank you so much for helping my wife who did not understand the appeal process. You helped settle her case in one visit. We are grateful. — Hung Le

Both myself and my wife are greatly indebted to Ms. Mazur and her firm who were with us every step of the way in getting through the Social Security process. It would have been virtually impossible for us to deal with the Social Security Administration on our own in our debilitated states. Again, we’re very grateful to her and her office staff who were with us every step of the way. — J.O. and L.O.

I can’t thank you and your staff enough for all the hard work you put into my SS disability case. Your professionalism can’t be matched. Whenever I contacted or came in the office, everyone couldn’t have been kinder to me. Even though the process took some time, I was always kept informed of the status. Please accept my sincerest appreciation for all you did for me. I will surely recommend your firm to anyone who needs legal assistance and if you would like to use me as a reference, I would be honored to do so. I think my mother sent me a gift of this SS award from heaven — it would have been her birthday on 7/20 when you called me with the great news. — C.M.

Thank you for your continued, unwavering support! — J.C.

Thank you so very much. You and your staff have been so wonderful and helpful to me. I appreciate all your patience. — D.H.

Thank you for everything you do for me. — M.F.

Thank you — thank you and thank you! May God Bless you! — M.L.

Thank you so much, for all your professional advice, during the past 3 1/2 years, in handling my application for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Both you and Ms. Mazur did a wonderful job of representing me, during this long stretch of time. I know it hasn’t been easy, and I apologize for the additional problems I presented you with. Please tell Ms. Mazur that I am deeply touched by your fine work, as well as hers. Also, please let me know what the “next steps” will be for me to undertake, due to my successful hearing today, with both of you, and Judge Andres, because I will be in need of your and Ms. Mazur’s assistance, as well as additional counsel in helping my son apply for benefits. — B.L.

Wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. There is not much to say but this card will tell you everything we always want to thank you for everything you did for us. God Bless you all. From someone who will never forget you. May all your dreams come true. — J.I. and C.T.

With sincere thanks and gratitude. — J.J. and F.F.

With thanks for all you have done for me. I thank you so very much. Jackie and your wonderful staff for all their time and help too! Thank you again for everything. — P.P.

Thank you for all your hard work and for a happy ending. — R.C.

Thank you for all your hard work on my case. I’m sorry it didn’t work out. I know that even though things are improving now, I may need your help again in the future. I hope we’re all met with better luck and less obstacles next time. Take care of yourselves and have a happy and healthy holiday. — D.W.

We want to thank you for everything you did for us in this case. You are a wonderful lawyer. We are sorry for all the times we may have sounded mad or frustrated. I’m sure you understand what we’ve been through. Thanks again to you and all your staff. — M.R.

Thank you so much for all your work on behalf of the family of J.C. I’m sure B. and J. will keep in touch and advise you of the final resolution of this complicated and frustrating ordeal. — M.W.

Thanks for everything you have done. — J.C.

Thank you for your efforts, expertise and tenacity to bring my son’s Social Security overpayment case to a conclusion after years of frustration. Again, Mrs. Mazur, thank you very much for your superior representation on R’s behalf. — R.K.

From the moment you meet Ms. Mazur and her staff you will know right away just how professional, dedicated and friendly they are. Ms. Mazur maintained an excellent quality of service during our time working on my disability case. She will spend time with you answering all questions you may have, she will guide you from start to finish and will take care of all necessary paperwork in order to speed up your case and make your case 100% complete.

If I had to do it all over again, I would want Ms. Mazur to be the person representing me. I am so blessed that God put Ms. Mazur on my way in order to work on my disability case. I have no words to show the gratitude I feel and I will always be grateful for the rest of my life for everything she did on my disability case because I will never be able to do it on my own and I will be forever grateful. She does an AMAZING and AWESOME job!!! and she makes sure that you have what you need from start to finish.

Thank you again Ms. Mazur and all wonderful staff for the best quality of service, professionalism, dedicated, excellent human being, compassionate attorney and representative.
