Indianapolis Social Security Attorney Dustin Schock
Dustin Schock is an attorney who works in our disability practice. He handles Social Security and long-term disability appeals. Dustin was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He attended Indiana University and earned a B.A. in political science with a minor in history. He was a member of the Honors College. Dustin graduated summa cum laude from Capital University Law School in 2010. He was the Staff Member of the Year while an associate for the law review, and he later served as an associate editor.
Dustin has over a decade of professional experience working with Social Security disability appeals. He has attended over 1,000 administrative hearings on behalf of claimants. Immediately prior to joining our team, he was a law clerk for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. He assisted the federal judicial officers with Social Security judicial review cases by predominantly writing the final dispositive orders. Dustin took pride in helping the judges with dispensing justice and getting it right. In fact, less than one percent of the orders that he helped write were overturned on appeal. But when his term ended, Dustin was eager to apply his experience with the court to once again represent the rights and interests of claimants. Dustin is now an important member of our federal court team.
