Purchase case summaries

  • Purchase all of the topics within one or more circuits. This is our most popular option.
    This will show you how the courts in your circuit(s) have been deciding Social Security disability cases. You can see which arguments have been most successful before your judges, and how the courts view certain types of issues. You will know which cases have been issued as Acquiescence Rulings for your circuit. Decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court will be included with each circuit order.
  • Purchase the decisions of all circuits on one topic or multiple topics.
    This will show you how courts across the country are deciding particular issues. If no court in your area has ruled on your issue, you can see what has been successful in other areas. You can see if your circuit is in agreement with others, or find a successful argument made in another circuit.
