Gideon focuses his practice on helping Veterans win their claims for service-connected disability compensation before the VA Regional Office, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals and, on appeal, at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. He is a Senior Associate and serves as a member of the firm’s Management Committee. Gideon is also actively involved in several Veterans organizations, including the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA).
Gideon takes an immense amount of pride in his work and cares deeply for his clients. He understands that a VA disability case is often as much about our government’s recognition of the breadth and impact of a veteran’s service as it is about securing compensation for his/her well-being. Because of this dedication, he has helped veterans and their family members win millions of dollars in retroactive benefits and, perhaps more crucially, to get the recognition they deserve.
Over the years, Gideon has become an expert in VA disability law. Previous to joining Gang & Associates, he worked at the Hermann Law Group where, in addition to aiding disabled individuals secure Social Security Disability benefits, he built a VA practice from the ground up. Due to having expertise in both these areas, Gideon is especially astute in helping veterans establish that they are entitled to a total disability rating based on individual unemployability (TDIU).
Gideon understands that winning a VA disability case can often be complex and may take an immense amount of patience given the VA’s backlog. Therefore, he is committed to finding the most effective and efficient strategies to help his clients secure the maximum amount of relief under the law. He welcomes difficult issues and is an expert at finding both legal errors and securing the evidence necessary to help Veterans win their claims.
Gideon attended the University of Maryland, where he majored in both English Language and Literature and Political Science. He then pursued his Juris Doctor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, graduating in 2011. He is currently admitted to practice in Massachusetts, New York and Federal Courts, including the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. He is also accredited to represent claimants before the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration. In addition, he has experience in the area of private long-term disability insurance.
Over the past few years, Gideon has consistently been recognized as a rising star by Super Lawyers® and was recognized in 2018 a top attorney amongst outstanding young lawyers in the New York Metro Area.
Gideon’s paternal grandfather served in the British military during World War II and won several medals for driving transports behind enemy lines. His grandparents on his other side escaped Europe at the onset of World War II, and he is therefore both appreciative of and indebted to Veterans and our current service members.
He is originally from Massachusetts, and now lives in Paramus, NJ, with his wife and two children. In his spare time, Gideon enjoys following his hometown sports and being active, be it playing soccer, basketball or hiking. He also enjoys traveling, geography and history. Most importantly, he likes to spend time with his family and help Veterans secure the benefits they deserve.
