Francis Jackson

Francis “Jack” Jackson is an experienced attorney who specializes in disability law for those seeking veterans disability benefits and Social Security disability benefits. Francis, founding partner of Jackson & MacNichol, Attorneys at Law, has been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX network affiliates around the country. Francis most recently appeared as a guest of Ben Glass on the “Consumer Advocate” show discussing his expertise in benefits for veterans and Social Security Disability Benefits and how his practice allows him to make a significant difference in the lives of people facing disabilities. He has also been quoted in USA Today. Looking back on the roots of Francis’ more than 30-year career as an attorney, after his graduation summa cum laude from Bowdoin College in 1974, a factor in his move to disability law was his longtime interest in the mental health and law area. That sprang from his internship during law school with the prestigious Mental Health Law Project in Washington, DC. While in law school, he also served on the editorial board of the University of Maine Law Review and was a member of the school’s national moot court competition team. Jack has practiced law for more than 30 years, focusing on the disability area. After he established his Social Security disability practice, he expanded the firm’s practice areas to include representation of veterans seeking disability benefits. As a member of the National Association of Veterans Advocates (NOVA), Jack’s firm, Jackson & MacNichol, represents veterans at all stages of the benefits appeal process and has handled hundreds of cases nationwide. In addition to representing clients before the Veterans Administration, the firm represents veterans in the appeals courts. Among Francis’ more important victories in veterans cases at the court level are Smith v. Derwinski, 2 Vet. App. 241 (1992) and Moody v. Principi, 357 F.3d 1370 (Fed. Cir. 2004). Jack tracks the latest developments in these practice areas through memberships in organizations such as NOVA. In addition to developing cases through careful investigation, including the review of medical records, interviews and collection of evidence, he and the other lawyers at Jackson & MacNichol are trained litigators, with extensive experience representing clients in hearings and with legal knowledge to write persuasive briefs. In addition to representing veterans, Francis also helps people obtain the Social Security Disability Benefits that they deserve. While many lawyers who do Social Security disability work are intimidated by the federal courts and shy away from such cases, Francis and his firm regularly win cases in the courts. Francis has even written a book on the topic: How Not to Lose Your Social Security Case. When people retain Jackson & MacNichol, they know they’re getting lawyers who aren’t afraid to fight for justice for them.
