David Paletta and team


Over the past 34 years, I have successfully represented hundreds of disabled individuals in their efforts to obtain Social Security disability benefits.


I handle disability appeals at all levels – from the Request for Reconsideration to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. I have presented hundreds of appeals to disability judges at the Hearing level.


I have meeting sites in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Boone and West Jefferson where I meet with clients as needed. I do not maintain office hours at any location. An appointment must be scheduled via phone or email.


Ask a Disability Attorney

“I’m writing this recommendation on behalf of anyone who needs assistance with obtaining Social Security disability benefits. I met with attorney David Paletta after being denied my request for SSDI benefits about a year and a half ago. Mr. Paletta came to see me in person at the homeless shelter where I was residing. We talked for at least a couple of hours and Mr. Paletta stated he would accept my case.

Mr. Paletta was very thorough in his questioning in regard to my case. He also counseled me to be patient and to keep him updated on all information pertaining to my case. When it was time for my hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, he was there at my side helping me every step of the way. To me, Mr. Paletta was an extraordinary attorney and gentleman. You couldn’t ask for a better disability attorney than David Paletta.

Thank you, Mr. Paletta!”
