Don is a great person. He is extremely intelligent. He has great legal knowledge & experience. He is a hard worker & is very reliable. Socially he can be a bit awkward, however, and he seems less insightful when it comes to communication issues regarding emotional interactions among regular folks.

I had an extremely difficult disability case and everyone in the firm was wonderful in getting all the needed documents or making phone calls to win my case. I am beyond pleased with them; friendly, professional and helpful with all my questions trying to understand exactly what was going to happen.
Thank you Pilzer Group.

When we met before going in front of the judge he told me he was going to explain to me exactly what the judge was going to ask and what I was to say. It turned out that the judge asked me many questions he had not reviewed or even discussed with me and I didn't even understand some of them, let alone know how to answer and I wound up sobbing in hysterics.

Attorney Pilzer is one of the most professional, compassionate and thorough attorneys I have ever seen or met. From consultation to knee deep in gathering evidence for a very difficult case to presenting everything to a judge and then winning, he and his staff went above and beyond to see that my son had every chance in the world to get the benefits he so desperately needed. I would recommend Attorney Don Pilzer to anyone who is having difficulty receiving benefits from Social Security.

HE HAS A LOCAL ADVERTISEMENT ON T.V. STATING THAT ALL HE HAS SPECIALIZED IN FOR THE PAST 25 YEARS, IS SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY, AND THAT'S NOT TRUE, MY DECEASED EX-HUSBAND AND I USED HIM TO FILE BANKRUPTCY 20 YEARS AGO! SO, HE PROVES THE SAYING, "YOU CAN TELL A LAWYER IS LYING, IF HIS LIPS ARE MOVING!" WOULDN'T RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE!
