Attorney Profile

Crysti D. Farra is the founder of her eponymous law firm that is based in Lido Beach, New York. Focusing her practice primarily on Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income matters, she represents clients throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties, other parts of the New York City metropolitan area, and across the state, as well as nationally.  Ms. Farra's experience also encompasses personal injury litigation, estate planning and workers' compensation. Admitted to practice before all New York and Connecticut state courts, she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and the Supreme Court of the United States.

In her Social Security Disability practice, Ms. Farra provides advice and counsel to people who are unable to work due to a physical or mental condition, and who are seeking benefits from the Social Security Administration. The filing process can be complex, and she helps her clients obtain all the necessary documentation that accompanies their claims. The great majority of SSD claims nationwide are initially denied, and Ms. Farra represents those clients at the appellate level before an administrative law judge. The Supplemental Security Income program is generally designed to cover a different class of applicants and is funded by general tax revenues as opposed to Social Security taxes, but again, she helps applicants throughout the process. Her successful track record and high degree of ethics in all of these endeavors have earned Ms. Farra an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo.

As an undergraduate, Ms. Farra attended The University of Texas at Arlington, where she majored in criminology and received a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in 2005. Her legal education was obtained at the Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, and she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2009.
