Michael’s Bio

Meet Michael Liner – Cleveland, OH SSI Attorney

Michael Liner is the founder of Liner Legal, LLC.



Michael is proud to have been selected by his peers as one of the top Social Security Disability lawyers in Ohio under the age of 40. With a superior knowledge of the law, commitment to providing the best client service available, and a passion for tireless representation of his clients in their time of great need, Michael has helped his clients obtain tens of millions of dollars in Social Security benefits.

Michael became a disability attorney because he knows what it is like to be “different”. As a child growing up in the Detroit area, he attended a special school for children with attention and behavior problems. His behavior problems were so severe in fact that he was ultimately expelled from that special school. Michael also dealt with with a range of neurological disorders including epilepsy and motor tic syndrome. When choosing a career path, it was important for Michael to find a field where he could help people going through experiences like his own as a child.

After graduating from law school Michael cut his teeth at one of Ohio’s largest and most prestigious plaintiff’s firms, where he still serves in an “of counsel” role today. Michael has successfully represented thousands of claimants seeking Social Security Disability benefits at all stages of litigation — from initial applications up through the Federal District Court level. Michael regularly speaks to groups in Ohio about Social Security Disability benefits and has been invited to speak across the country on business development topics. His writing has also been featured in the Bar Journal of The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association and other legal publications.
