    The Law Office of Sharmine Persaud has a thorough understanding of New York law. We work hard to help you get the best possible results in the following practice areas:

    • Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDB): The process of obtaining Social Security disability benefits can be daunting and complicated. We prefer to meet clients as soon as possible before the client has filed the application for Social Security disability benefits, so we can get the case started in the right direction. However, we will intervene at any stage, even after denial of an appeal. Let us help you through this difficult period in your life. We want you to receive the disability benefits that you are entitled to and deserve. For more information visit our website www.sharminepersaud.com or Social Security. https://www.ssa.gov/
    • Veterans’ Service Connected Benefits (VA):  Applying for Benefits – Veterans Benefits Administration If you are a member of the armed forces serving on either active duty or full-time National Guard duty, you should apply through the VA Pre-Discharge Program before leaving service.  If you have been discharged you may apply for VA Benefits using eBenefits. The best way to file for disability compensation is to apply online at eBenefits.va.gov. If you do not have an eBenefits account you can register at https://www.benefits.va.gov/BENEFITS/Applying.asp. Should you receive a Rating Decision and wish to appeal that decision please contact my office. If your claim is denied, we will appeal that decision. With our help, you can get the veterans’ benefits you deserve.
    • Workers’ Compensation Injuries (WC): If you have sustained an injury or illness at your workplace or at a work-related activity, you have the right to workers’ compensation. New York Workers’ Compensation Benefits cover you even when the employer protests or controverts your claim.  Do not let your employer intimidate you or deter you from filing a claim.  For more information about filing a claim visit the Workers’ Compensation Board’s website  https://www.wcb.ny.gov or call our office at 516-586-0857.

    When you retain the services of the Law Office of Sharmine Persaud, you can be assured that your attorney is fully qualified to take on your case.


    Government statistics show that at least 65% of unrepresented applications are denied, controverted or disputed. Do not to give up because the success rate for an appeal is much greater. We feel  it is important not to be a statistic. The best advice we can give to anyone seeking to file for SSD, VA or WC benefits is to hire an attorney as earlier as possible. Let your attorney begin the medical development and document your medical illness. Your attorney should be involved with the details of your case from day one. Having a knowledgeable and experienced attorney will give you peace of mind. More importantly, the attorney will only receive a fee once he/she wins your case.
