Jeffrey Rabin has been representing individuals with disabilities and medical/legal issues since 1980. He began this law firm in 1988 to focus his practice in the representation of disabled persons seeking Social Security disability benefits. He and his associates have successfully represented Claimants nationally at all levels of the Social Security Administration's administrative process, in the United States District Court and in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Despite his law practice and family, Jeff has remained active in the community. He has served as a member of the Executive Council of the American Trial Lawyers Association's (ATLA) Social Security Disability committee, is a former chairperson of the Chicago Bar Association Social Security Disability committee and is a frequent lecturer nationwide on Social Security disability law issues. On a number of occasions he has spoken at national conferences for both the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR), and for ATLA.

Jeff was appointed by Secretary of HHS Donna Shalala as a member of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Coordinating Committee for 2000-2001. He is a member of the Board of Directors of both the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Association of Illinois, and the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia & Chemical Sensitivities Coalition of Chicago (CFCCC). Jeff has also volunteered with the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Northern Illinois as a member of both the Government/Advocacy Committee and the Professional Advisory Committee. Finally he has been elected twice as a member of the local School Board in Deerfield, IL.

Jeff has monitored message boards on the Internet to provide general information for people struggling with the Social Security disability programs and does a monthly chat for the American Pain Foundation on their Pain Aide web site. He has also been asked to serve as a guest expert at other live Internet sites.

Jeff graduated from DePaul University College of Law in 1980 and from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1977 with a Bachelor of Journalism degree.
