About Our Staff
Daniel A. Bridgman
Daniel A. Bridgman worked as a Disability Examiner before he went to law school, so he has first-hand experience with evaluations of Social Security disability claims. He worked in Raleigh for North Carolina Disability Determination Services, where he put together claimants’ disability files, gathered medical evidence, and assisted the agency in deciding whether to accept or deny a claim.
Mr. Bridgman then attended Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem. Upon graduation he worked for a law firm that specialized in helping claimants win their Social Security disability claims, and then he left to form Bridgman Law Offices, where he focuses exclusively on Social Security.
