Social Security Disability
Attorneys in Metairie, Louisiana

A Loyola University School of Law alum Melanie Leavitt, has been a licensed attorney since 1984. In the early years of her career, she represented unions. Since 1989, Melanie has dedicated her practice to helping those with disabilities with matters related to Social Security Insurance (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), as well as short and long-term disability Insurance, and disability retirement for state and federal employees. Thanks to her experience, Melanie is deeply familiar with all the Disability Determination Offices in Louisiana, local mental health providers, and local doctors.

Adam Meunier, also a grad of Loyola University Law School, has been a licensed attorney since since 2002. But his journey in the legal field began well before his licensure; from 1991 until he officially became licensed in 2002, Adam diligently managed our office at Leavitt Meunier Law LLC. During this period, he worked as a law clerk, where his responsibilities included analyzing medical records and crafting legal arguments for appeals, laying a solid foundation for a career in representing SSI and SSDI clients. Adam is also authorized to represent disabled veterans before the Veterans Administration.

What Former Clients Have to Say

Louisiana Lawyers Solely Focused on SSI & SSDI

When you need a Social Security lawyer, finding one in Metairie, Louisiana, shouldn't be difficult. You can opt for one of the many large law firms that exclusively focus on disability claims. But most of them have thousands of clients to handle at a time, and if you choose one of them, you likely won't have the full attention of your attorney before your hearing. Although the team managing your case may understand your situation, it's probable that you'll communicate with a new individual each time you reach out.

Instead, choose a local law firm that effectively understands social security disability claims and is ready to give your case full attention until you get your benefits. At Leavitt Meunier Law LLC, you're not a case number — you're a human. Our SSI/SSDI attorneys will consider every aspect of your case and treat you with the respect you deserve. We'll help you build a strong case, whether you're down the street in Metairie or in the neighboring areas of Alexandria, Houma, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Hattiesburg, or Gulfport.
