FRANK D. FESKA, SR.Send email to FRANK D. FESKA, SR.FRANK D. FESKA, SR. is an attorney with Scully Disability.

He is a resident of Lake County, Indiana, moving there from Illinois specifically to help Social Security Disability claimants because he has personally been there — right where you are now. He has not only helped many disability claimants but has been one himself and knows what it is like to be in dire need of help while trying to get benefits from our country. It is not what it used to be. He saw that there were many folks out there who needed his assistance, and the individualized, local service offered by this firm is the place he wanted to be to make that happen.

Practicing law was always a goal for Mr. Feska, who had worked for major companies in various industries throughout the U.S. for many years. So, when his children completed high school, he began his new career by graduating Cum Laude from UCLA in Los Angeles, California and obtaining his Law Degree from John Marshall Law School in Chicago, where he earned a CALl Award for excellence in Constitutional Law. He then fought for Workers Comp claimants and those suffering from personal injuries before beginning his career in Social Security Disability Law. To him, this battle for your benefits is one of the biggest challenges many people face and it is his desire to help those most in need of this help.

Mr. Feska is admitted to practice law in Illinois. He is also admitted to the Federal Court in the Northern Districts of Indiana and Illinois as well as to practice in front of the Social Security Administration throughout the U.S.
