About Francis M. Jackson:

Looking back on the roots of Jackson’s 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, D.C.  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 in 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 Mr. Jackson’s 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, Jack also helps people to 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, Jack and his firm regularly win cases in the courts. Mr. Jackson has now written a book, “How not to Lose your Social Security case” to help people in their disability cases.  When people hire his firm, Jackson & MacNichol, they know they’re getting lawyers who are not afraid to fight for justice for them.
