Gary Linarducci, Esq. has devoted his professional career to helping individuals obtain Social Security Disability benefits. A child of Italian immigrants, Gary grew up in New Jersey where he enjoyed summers at the Jersey Shore, played football and was on the wrestling team in High School. He attended Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ where he majored in Business and met his future wife, Kathy. Moving to Delaware, Gary joined what would be the first graduating class of Delaware Law School and has been living in Delaware and practicing law ever since. He started at the Delaware Attorney General’s Office as a Deputy Attorney General where he prosecuted everything from DUI to Murder, and eventually moved into private practice. Throughout his 40-year career, he has had the opportunity to practice law before all the Courts in Delaware: Justice of the Peace, Family Court, Court of Common Pleas, Superior Court, Court of Chancery, Delaware Supreme Court, the United States Federal District Court and the United States Bankruptcy Court. He has tried thousands of cases in these Courts, including both civil and criminal cases, including over sixty jury trials.
Gary started representing Social Security disability clients in 1979 and now devotes all his time to his Social Security Disability clients. He is a speaker at Social Security Disability conferences at both the national and local levels. Gary worked with Chief Administrative Law Judge, David Antrobus, to help the Social Security Administration implement video conference hearings, which has greatly increased the productivity level of Administrative Law Judges nationally and gets Gary’s clients their benefits more quickly. Gary has been continually voted by his fellow Delaware attorneys as the “Top Lawyer” for Social Security Disability in the Delaware Today Magazine poll – every year since the category was created.
Gary has a passion to help his clients get the Disability benefits they need and are entitled to receive. Although he represents many clients each year, each client is special to him. While most clients receive benefits within a few years, he has represented clients where it took more than 10 years of appeals to finally receive the disability benefits his clients deserved.
When Gary is not in the office, he devotes his time to non-profit organizations and is interested in community, educational and environmental causes. Gary has been a board member of the Red Clay Consolidated School District and the Cab Calloway School of the Arts. He has been past president of the Friends of Wilmington Parks, Delaware Greenways, Inc., Highlands Community Association, Oak Grove Senior Center, Helen Graham Senior Center and is currently co-chair of the Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway Partnership.
Gary is admitted to practice law in both Delaware and New Jersey.
