Attorney Richard A. Culbertson founded his Orlando law firm, the Law Office of Richard A. Culbertson, in 1996 with the goal of assisting the residents of Central Florida, from Orlando to Daytona Beach and beyond, who need assistance navigating the complex Social Security Disability claims process. For nearly 20 years, he has proudly assisted clients during all stages of the process, from initial filings to federal appeals.

Mr. Culbertson began his career in 1975 after earning his law degree from Western State College of Law and his admission to The State Bar of California. He has since gained admission to The Florida Bar, the U.S. District Courts for the Middle District of Florida and the Central District of California, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 5th, 9th and 11th Circuits, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

When attorney Culbertson began practicing law, he assisted the less fortunate through his work with the Legal Aid Society of Orange County. In 1978, he relocated to Florida, where he continued to provide legal aid by joining the team at Greater Orlando Area Legal Services as a staff attorney. He went on to rise to the position of executive director before leaving to found his firm in 1996.

Since opening his firm and focusing entirely on Social Security Disability, Mr. Culbertson has established a reputation as a dedicated client advocate and leader in his area of the law. The National Board of Legal Specialty Certification recognizes him as a board-certified Social Security Disability lawyer, and he is a regular guest speaker before community and legal organizations, including the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives.
